I've been asked to look into a possible use of EGL as a web service in our organization.
What we need is the following.
Our RPGLE application residing (of course) on the iSeries would call a web service to check the timestamp of one or more files that reside on a windows server (\\server\folder\file.ext<file:///\\server\folder\file.ext> paths will be provided from the RPGLE). I would use HTTPAPI from Scott Klement, of course.
The web service would then return the timestamps - if the files are found - or a "no file" indication.
I already looked at some of the examples available in EGL café, but either I'm not searching well, or there are no examples of EGL accessing or retrieving information from files that have not been explicitly identified in the project itself.
Any input would be highly appreciated, even if it is just "sorry, can't be done in EGL".
Thanks in advance,
