In this particular case, there is one, and only one system API I need
access to. I have a Java servlet that needs to call this system API,
which is written in C (I presume). Could I write the wrapper in RPG and
then use cgi to get access to it? Perhaps. This started out with a
simple need: Call this one API from the Java servlet that needs it. It
just ended up being more complex than I had anticipated.
Had the whole thing been an RPG solution, I would have taken a different
approach. Maybe I still will. If you have an example of exposing a
system API as a REST service, let me know. REST services are easy to
call from Java.

Just curious, with the coming of Rest Services and how simple it makes
executing logic on the IBM i, is PCML obsolete? Why would you use PCML over
using a Rest Service?
