I take that to mean that you're using an SQL Call statement to run the
stored procedure.  That can be good and, not-so-good.  You're using the
AS/400 to handle database and business logic.  That's good.

However, the Host Servers that you connect to (in my opinion) were not
designed for the dynamics of Web applications.  A new host server job is
activated for each connection.  Then after that, the stored procedure is
activated.  After the run, the stored procedure is deactivated, and the host
server job ends.  It consumes significant CPU time.  You run into even more
difficult scalability issues than you do with CGI.
