I developped an interface on as400 with linux machine.
I wrote this interface using sockets in RPG (Client and server side)
It works very good.
Speed, length of source code, size of object are nice.

Some guys talk me about MqSeries and said it is better and more 'STANDARD'
than sockets.
I don't know MQseries.

It is better ?

What are the difference between Sockets and MQSeries ?

Thanks for answers

I don't know who those "guys" are, but they need to wake up.  MQSeries is
(now) an IBM product.  Sockets go anywhere, and are certainly more "standard"
than MQSeries.  MQ was developed before there _were_ sockets on the AS/400.  
The only way I can envision MQ being better than sockets is that MQ has many
recovery abilities built in...sockets can be a little "iffy" in this regard.
