Thanks Nadir and Jeff.
So if I have SysAdmin create the web service server, is there a way I can get to the wizard (that I've not yet met) as a lowly developer? The only thing I've read so far is that I have to go to the same place with super-powers in order to meet the wizard.

You must have *ALLOBJ and *IOSYSCFG special authorities to create a web
services server, or, if you are on IBM i 6.1 or newer release, you must
have been given permission to create Web services servers. I will
point you to InfoCenter for additional information on this.

I'm exploring the process of creating a [first] web service with IWS.
reading some how-to stuff in IBMSystems articles that tell me how to
there using a wizard, but I'm not getting too far. I read that I must
have *ALLOBJ authority to get to the wizard. Is that for real? In
shop, that means that the SysAdmin would be the only one that would be
able to develop a web service-- could be scarey! I don't know that we
up-to-speed with the HTTP SERVER PTFs -- hopefully we will be by next
-- but we are at 7.1.
When I attempt http://NotJustAnybodyGetsToPlayHere:2001/HTTPAdmin I
ZUI_50044: IBM i user profile LowlyDeveloper does not have *IOSYSCFG
*ALLOBJ authorities or has not been granted permission which is
to use the administration interface of IBM HTTP Server for i.
If there are specific objects that need dumbed-down authorities so that
riff-raff like developers can develop, could someone suggest how I
make this acceptable to the higher powers?
I'll cross-post this to WEB400 as well.
