Hi Doug,

We use the IBM supplied IWS AXIS functions for the majority of our REST
calls from inside RPG and are very satisfied with them. You don't need to
set up a webservice webserver for that. AFAIK these functions are part of
the operating system.

For extraction of the received JSON strings we use Scott's great YAJL
implementation.

Regards,

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,

Doug
