I don't know what version of the OS you or your customer is on, but, IBM has provided some HTTP tools via SQL. There was an older set in QSYSTOOLS like HTTPGETCLOB, and the newer one that I just did a project with is in QSYS2 called HTTP_GET.

Depending on what you're using the API's for, you might be able to replace their functions with native functions, now on IBM i.

Subject: Checking to see whether a given box can access a web service

You know, by now, that I don't exactly keep up with the "latest, greatest" new OS updates.

And I'm sure by now, most of you know that we host some web services.
Including web services that are strictly HTTPS-only. And that we use Scott Klement's HTTPAPI to access them from Midrange boxes.

Without installing any of our software on a given customer box, is there something we can do, that will check whether that box has the prerequisites for HTTPAPI to access our web services?
