Brad - Our E-commerce package was written in RPG, and Net.Data, and used
the Net.Commerce toolset to build the following sites; (Not on AS/400 anymore :( ...)

and 11 other sites.

There's an RPG program that tracks site movement - and summarizes the
information for tracking purposes.  We've been averaging 14,000 visitors
(not hits) and close to 4 million hits a day - not counting graphics.

Great commercial product - but I don't know what I'd do with it.  Before
you go suggesting a commercial product for the list, please understand
that the list is for issues, not advertising in the AS/400 "midrange"
world.  Any suggestions such as the one you made, probably should have
been taken off-line...

Warning: I am about to toot my own horn for a commercial product
that I think applies in this situation.

A simple way to jump start this development process is to use our
Content Express, which takes AS/400 spool files, splits them into
parts if necessary (such as individual invoices, purchase orders,
statements) , then emails the parts to customers or your own
people, and posts them on the web, and prints them if desired.
Each recipient gets an individual logon name and password, usually
generated from he report - such as customer number and last 4
digits of phone number, and they can set their own options - print
me, email me, web me, do all three, etc.

The product costs $10K, and it runs on a PC (you could run it on
the INS) . Email me at if you want a demo or
trial version, we offer a thirty day moneyback satisfaction
guarantee, and we are happy to ship on a PO or written order from
any AS/400 site. We are also happy to work with consultants on a
finders fee basis for any of our products, including LaserVault
archiving and imaging.

You can then have an instant web presence where it is most
visible - in customer service. You can then spend your development
efforts on revenue enhancers, such as adding a web payment side to
your bill presentment.

There are other products, which I consider less complete, from
other vendors, some of them being closer to programming tools
(which some of you prefer for their flexibility.)
