not and what datatype i need to pass.

If you don't know if the program takes parameters or not ... or the number & type of parameters ... how can you logically invoke the program at all?

You'll need to find out, from the developers of the program, what parameters it needs.

i looking also for a way to find program and they full path in the iseries
only using their name, there is any way to find them in the system ?
something like a search in the windows.

You could theoretically search the entire /QSYS.LIB IFS space for the program ... but that would take a massive amount of time.

Keep in mind the program could exist in multiple libraries on a single system.

BTW: I suggest using PCML to make program calls instead of ProgramCall objects. Much easier to work with.
