PHP can be used in the web or as a script so Web400 isn't the only place.

Write a stored procedure in RPG and I believe you can return resultsets, join tables, etc.

Or write some PHP classes (your business layer in PHP) to wrap the SQL.

What style of RPG program can communicate with PHP?
Pass a result set back to the PHP application?

We are writing a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application in
agnostic PHP (not the ZEND optimized for IBM i)

All of the CRM-specific tables are physical files on IBM I in our CRM

Substantial portions of the CRM application will join to our JD Edwards
World ERP at release A92 for information.
e.g. Retrieve from F42* files containing Sales history.
e.g. Validate postal codes against F0117 Address Book file
(exist/NotExist CHAIN)

e.g. provide a JDE# to retrieve a name from F0101 Address Book
e.g. Scrub and Edit some CRM data entry against various UDCs in F0005

I am willing to write some RPG programs that our web guy could use as
program calls so that he doesn't need to do everything with SQL
statements, however, I do not know style of RPG program he could use.
