In my opinion, the best way to do it from RPG would be to use a tool like UNIXCMD:

This is off the top of my head and untested, but i'd do something like this with UNIXCMD:

dcl-f UNIX disk(132) handler('UNIXCMDOA': cmd) usropn;

dcl-s cmd char(5000);
dcl-ds record len(132) end-ds;
dcl-s inst char(10) dim(2);

dcl-pr QCMDEXC extpgm('QSYS/QCMDEXC');
cmd char(5000) const;
length packed(15: 5) const;
igc char(3) const options(*nopass);

cmd = '/QIBM/ProdData/OS/WebServices/bin/listWebServicesServers.sh';
open UNIX;

read UNIX record;
dow not %eof(UNIX);

if %scan('running': record) = 0;
inst = %split(record:' ');
cmd = 'STRTCPSVR *HTTP HTTPSVR(' + %trim(inst(1)) + ')';
QCMDEXC(cmd: %len(cmd));

read UNIX record;

close UNIX;
*inlr = *on;

If you can't use a tool like this, then you have to write the output from QSH to a temporary file, and read the file. Or learn how to use the pipe and spawn APIs.

But if there is a reference for other options then I am always keen to learn more.

I just need a utility that will check if a web service is started and if not start it that can be automated.

In what language?  QShell?

Thanks Bryan,

I ran the QSH

and the result

WSERVICE01 (Running)
Press ENTER to end terminal session.

How do I receive this result so I can interrogate and take an action based
on the result ?
