Thanks Robert and Kevin,

I'm working as a contractor on this project, and am not in a position to make decisions about the technology we can use, but I will definitely pass along the advice to those responsible.

A few follow-up questions, then.

How can I know if System-Link is installed? I looked in WRKLICINF and found entries for System-Link, Net-Link, and Enterprise Integrator, but when I looked in the Browser Applications tab, none of these modules are listed as Installed. Is a simple thing, then, to have these installed in Browser?

If these are not installed, are they costly to add? Any idea of what the costs might be?

I would also highly recommend System-Link. There is a Local Program Interface provided with System-Link to make it easy for RPG programmers to submit requests. Power-Link also has an menu option to give you the System-Link XML for the transaction that you are entering. Also there is a Simulator to allow you to test your XML with a browser before inserting it into your interface programs.

I would STRONGLY recommend you consider System-Link for any serious
integration development. That is the message Infor has been telling us
for quite some time. It works well and is truely "release transparent".
It is XML based but you don't necessarily have to learn a lot of XML
development skills to use it. (Some tools/tricks available to help with
that, even for RPG developers).

Enterprise Integrator obvoiusly brings a lot more to the table than System
Link but that is just one piece. E/I will let you migration your own
applications/files into the IDF framework, as well as leverage System Link
for "data pushes" into your files or Xa files (or XA files with your
extentions/user fields).

If you want to grow with the product E/I and S/L is the tools to embrace.
Your affiliate can give you more details.
