Hmmm, I'm not so sure it's as easy as described, at least not to do a properly stateless, RESTful API when you need to accessed paged data on the system (and I say this having written quite a few). The key word here being "stateless", because there's no concept of previous page, or next page etc., each request has to be able to ask for page "x" of the data set with no prior state whatsoever and not necessarily sequentially. I don't believe it's possible to reuse existing subfile logic to do this correctly.

Fortunately SQL can solve this problem using the LIMIT x OFFSET y clause, the following stored procedure below shows how this can be used:

create or replace procedure SP_QueryTables(
in "TABLE_SCHEMA_" varchar(10) ccsid 273,
in "TABLE_NAME_" varchar(256) ccsid 273,
in PAGE_NUM integer,
in PAGE_SIZE integer
)

language SQL
result sets 1
specific SP_QueryTables
set option usrprf=*OWNER,
datfmt=*ISO,
timfmt=*ISO

begin
declare C1 cursor with return to caller for

-- Any operations that sort, increase or decrease the number of rows selected belong here
-- (such as inner joins, one-to-many joins, the "where" clause, distinct, etc.).
with PAGED_DATA as (
select *

from QSYS2.SYSTABLES

where (coalesce(TABLE_SCHEMA_, '') = '' or TABLE_SCHEMA = TABLE_SCHEMA_) and
(coalesce(TABLE_NAME_, '') = '' or TABLE_NAME like concat(TABLE_NAME_, '%'))

order by TABLE_NAME
)

select (select count(*) from PAGED_DATA) as ROW_COUNT,
PD.*

from PAGED_DATA PD

limit PAGE_SIZE offset (PAGE_NUM - 1) * PAGE_SIZE

-- Add any left joins here...
;

open C1;

end
;;

call TIM1.SP_QueryTables('TIM1', 'TEST', 1, 10)
;;


Indeed, such a construct can be used to simplify and enhance existing subfile programs IMO, although I'm lucky enough to avoid having to write an most of the time these days 😉

Tim.

Can you supply code on how to do this?

Using web you can do simple pages, medium, or sophisticates. Using RPG web is very fast, you will not notice any difference in speed.

You can translate very easily a subfile program to the web, and have it similar to the green screen.

Since a long time ago I do not have limits in sub file size, nor in the width. I have moved to the web. Highly recommended.
Depends. I'm loving text interfaces very much since they are *quick* and very clear when well designed. A browser, transferring and rendering eye-candy and more or less huge tables is often slower and invites to cram as much information in one page as reasonably possible.

Please note: I'm mostly a hobbyist user but my boss thinks alike and
so I'm developing some tools for inhouse use…
