Neill:

I see what you mean.

IBM needs this feedback seeing as IWS is still a "work in process."

Good luck!

Bill

Thanks Bill

I probably didn't make it very clear in my original question, But I am
wanting to use the integrated application server to serve web apps or my
own
web services.

I would like our shop to have proper Development and production
environments, and it would just be nice in in testing, developers didn't
need to have ALLOBJ etc to deploy their apps and services to the DEV
machine
/ dev integrated web application server.

Neil:

It is very frustrating as it seems to be able to deploy applications
you
need a profile with IOSYSCFG, SECADM and ALLOBJ.

That doesn't seem to be inconsistent to me. Yes, the administrator
deploying a web services needs these permission. The profile under
which the exposed ILE service program runs can be as restricted as you
need it to be.

Consumers can only call your ILE service programs exposed by the web
service program. Virtually any deviation from the parameters expected
by the service program (size, number, type) cause the web service fail
gracefully (if cryptically) before the ILE service programs are called.

I thought if CL commands could be used they could be compiled to adopt
authority.

The stuff the administrator does is a one time only set up which
generated wrappers for your ILE service programs. Everything runs under
the user profile which was specified during this set up.

That's not really great from a security auditors perspective.

I have found a few links to wsadmin, may be that will work with
Integrated
Web Service for i!!!

I spent a few months working with this last year.

If you are referring to "Integrated Web Service for i" application
server (http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/i/software/iws/index.html) I
believe the answer is no. I spoke to technical support several times.
This product is geared to exposing existing ILE service programs as web
applications and requires the skills of a system administrator. Several
times I was frustrated by the product protecting me too much.

I have to say that if you can play within its rules it works really
well.

I know you can deploy war files to the integrated application server via
the
web admin interface, but are there any CL or QShell commands for
deploying
the applications.



Thanks
