Thanks Vern,

Performance is not really an issue with this requirement - the requirement
is to connect to a gateway once per day and retrieve up to a 1000 small

We have other applications that require a JVM and we have used data queues
to a monitor that works very well and again no real performance

As we can use the java classes from pure java if I can't sort this out I
will get a new java class to call the gateway API classes that is simple
and RPG can then call the new class. I would just prefer not to add this
additional layer - not from a performance perspective but from a
complexity perspective.

Appreciate your comments

Hi Don

I agree generally with Dieter in this area. The more Java calls you have
from RPG, the less well your app will perform. An example is how slow
the use of POI can be, in my experience.

A call to a single class that gets the parameters you need will perform
ever so much better, especially if sent to something like ArdGate, where
you have exactly 1 start of the JVM.

Just to ask Dieter - can these calls to Java from RPG be sent to ArdGate
as individual calls? I don't know enough about ArdGate to say.

may be as you suggest.

... it would be much easier to write some java code to provide the
function for your RPG programms and doing all needed translations of
parameters in Java. It would be faster, more stable and much more

calling this piece of java asynchronous.
