GETURI has been available for this very task for over 15 years now

It has both command level and program level interfaces.

The GETURI docs have some simple examples, and if you search for GETURI at there are also other examples there.

I'm also to happy help first timers set up their first requests to show how
it works.

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 up.

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,
