I've actually looked into that... however, there are limitations to the
ARD interface. i.e. there are things you can't do through an ARD... and
the ARD programming is not trivial.
By calling the JDBC drivers from RPG, you can use all of the capabilities
of the databasae, without the limitations of ARD -- so that's the
direction I decided to go. I've written a bunch of articles about it, let
me know if you'd like me to post the links (though, they've been posted
here a few times already.) I'll also be presenting on the subject at
COMMON next week.
I use this tool to let my RPG programs interface with my MySQL database
(exactly as you say... I have a web site built on FreeBSD, Apache, MySQL
and PHP... FAMP, I guess).
