Re: Looking for example/instructions on sending data from web to a data queue



fixed

Hi, Booth.

I'm lost as to what your asking. As Vern suggested, when a form on a web
page is submitted it calls a specific program and that program can read the
data that was submitted either from the query string environment variable
(GET) or from the POST data.

Can you elaborate on what you want to do and where you hear the idea of a
data queue?

As far as I know, there is no way to directly write to a data queue from
a browser - if that is what you mean by sending from the web

Everything from a form goes through a CGI program that is specified on
the <form> in HTML - and THAT program would take some parameter value and
pass it to the data queue.

Now PHP may have something like that - ultimately, there is a program
doing it but you don't see it, i think.

There might be something in this service program that came out a while
back - I forget the name, it is used by the PHP support, I think. It has a
number of builtins, sort of.

I want to send output from a web form to a data queue for processing by
an RPG program. I believe it is possible, and not all that hard, however I
have confused myself.

Any good places to look for a solution?
