Lot's of solutions but how about comparing them? The choice is almost
impossible unless you are an expert and then you wouldn't need to ask the
CGIDEV2, isn't that about the oldest and simplest solution for an RPG
programmer? What are its limitations? I'm presuming there are lots.
Also, I see that there's a lot of information about Drupal on ibm i. As my
knowledge of web developement is limited, I can't imagine me using anything
else as the basic site is up and running in no time. I once asked a manager
of our web developement team what the benefit was in having a large team of
Java developpers creating a site from scratch when products such as Drupal
existed. "None", he replied.

I use CGIDEV2 for all programs. The "look" of the data is defined in a
separate member (like the dds for the scree) and the programs are more o
less similar to the ones for 5250.
Using those tools you need very litle $ and re training. Only need to
learn (or sub contrat) web design in order to get realy good looking

Hi Chuck,and ASP.Net pretty easily.
You can build customer and vendor portals using Microsoft Visual Studio
You can talk to the i using the CA/400 DB Drivers, XMLSERVICE, JT400 andmore.
You can easily continue to use your existing DB2 data and RPG code on theweb, collect credit card data and process payments and more.
If you need guidance or your team needs a project jump start, feel freeto contact me for discussion.
I'm sure you'll hear similar data from the 8000 other responses you'llget :-)
A lot of what you choose will be based on your team's skillsets, timeavailability and of course budget $$$

I'm trying to put together (i.e. understand) what the best options
and allow customer driven inquiry and on-line payment for invoices. I know
there seems to be dozens of tools and options, and obviously security is an
issue. So, please if you've "been there, done that" point me in the right
Thanks in advance--
