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



fixed

Sounds more like you want to create an "app" than a web page. Although, a
web page would be easier and would work on more devices (since the
HTML/browser should work in different environments).

The web page scenario would be pretty easy. The hardest part would be
talking your network admin into poking a hole in the firewall so that they
could communicate with your i from the Ultranet (tm Carolla Digital).

As for the program there are many things you could use... raw APIs (yuck),
CGIDEV2 or our eRPG SDK (much much easier), find some API wrappers and use
them (there are a lot of articles on CGI programming out there).

It sounds like first, though, you need to define what the purpose and
interface will be, then find the best method.

I'm working on a project with a customer now that uses Canvas to create
dynamic apps for phones. Think of Canvas as a SDA for "apps" for devices.
The data that is entered is then retrieved using a web service call (for
example with our GETURI application or Scotts HTTP API) as XML then parsed.

This may also be an option. I'm finding it to be really cool. There are
other companies that do this to, but I found Canvas to be the easiest and
have the best support during my trials.

As Vern has suggested, write a CGI RPG program to process the web form
data and then write it to a data queue.

I'm assuming you're not thinking about .Net or I would have other
suggestions :-)

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

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?

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.
