Thanks to those who already answered.
Carsten & Bruce: I am aware of the existence of the C include file but I don't see what I could do with it. It does define the prototypes in C, but when I use those procedures definition from an RPG pgm, I get this error:
CRTPGM PGM(TOBJ/UPDGRPF) BNDSRVPGM(QHTTPSVR/QZHBCONF) Definition not found for symbol 'QZHBADDGROUPTOLIST'. Definition not found for symbol 'QZHBCLOSEGROUPLIST'. Definition not found for symbol 'QZHBFINDGROUPINLIST'. Definition not found for symbol 'QZHBGETGROUPNAME'. Definition not found for symbol 'QZHBGETNEXTGROUP'. Definition not found for symbol 'QZHBOPENGROUPLIST'. Definition not found for symbol 'QZHBREMOVEGROUPFROMLIST'. Program UPDGRPF not created.
The only indication/instructions I could ever find in the "Information center" about the QZHBCONF usage was this sentence: "The group file APIs are in *SRVPGM QZHBCONF in library QHTTPSVR. ILE C programs must include header file QHTTPSVR/H(QZHBCONF)."
Btw, I am reluctant to rewrite a program by my own when one already exists, and an official one made by IBM that is. Why reinvent the wheel :-). My other consideration is that, if IBM ever decides to change something to those API's, using the service program would probably save me from updating one that I would've done myself. Believe me, I am not only being lazy. I've just finished writing 2 programs using validation lists API (one using the RPG API's and the other using the C API's as external procedures). Why 2? For sakes of experimentation using both sets of API's. Thats me :-)
JT: Basically, you would find the doc for those these API in the "HTTP Server APIs" - (original) section but Group file APIs are independent of HTTP Server type.
