Yes the sample code works for me locally on my PC with the WAMP setup.

So for now the new API isn't returning the same yet, I should be able to
figure it out.

Maybe it's the EBCDIC issue?

I do think you'll be able to figure it out, but if for whatever reason
you can't get it to work, you could try using another language on the
i, such as Java, PHP, or Python.

All of those will let you sidestep EBCDIC very easily. PHP is nice
because it matches the working code you already have, but if you don't
already have it on your i, it could be a pain to install (I don't
know, I haven't done it).

Java is nice because it's already on your system, but judging by the
amount of questions and attempted solutions on-line, it apparently
does not come with a ready-made HMAC function. The most credible I've
found is this:


Python is nice because it's as easy to use as PHP (simple, ready-made
HMAC function included) and most likely much easier to install than
