You are correct, Scott. I am confused. And still am confused.
My goal is to provide a very simple web service. The example I am learning with is a DB2 file of 10 to 20 records, each with a state and a city field. A green screen program maintains the file. The additional, new piece that I am trying to make work is an Intranet web service that offers that data, in a JSON format, to anyone who asks for it.
This DB2-to-web page task already works if I write a .json file to the IFS and deal with it as an IFS HTTP website. So, I know the general process works. The hang-up for me is the web service piece.
I shall read the slide show presentation one more time.
Your initial premise really is correct; I am confused. By the way, in case I forget, I really appreciate all the stuff you have offered and all that I have learned from you. Thank you Scott.
