Doug, I have used Skott klements's HTTPAPI for many SOAP requests and
currently doing my first REST project.

These are RPG prpgram's running on IBMi accessing remote web services.

See and the HTTP API Download and
presentations on Scott's web site.

Brad Stone also has GETURI but I have not used that yet.

There are lot's of examples for SOAP and not many for REST.

Go through the presentations and I would also read the YAJL presentations
as I am using that more and more every date for create and consume JSON.

Good luck

Don Brown

Subject: REST API call from RPG
Sent by: "RPG400-L" <rpg400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

I want to know if there are any examples of an RPG program
contacting an API on another system [non-IBMi] where the RPG program
would be the 'client' asking the other system [the 'target'] for
information using a REST interface with JSON. The only information I
see looks like it is tailored to having [i.e. our] IBM i serving as
the host and have other applications contacting ours for
information, and that seems to require the IBM WebServer wizard to set

Do I need to use that to have RPG be the client and contact other
companies servers for information or is there a different way when
RPG is just the client and not the target?

Thank you,
