I've used both HTTPAPI and GETURI to consume all kinds of web services (REST, SOAP) using both XML, JSON and (unfortunately) some proprietary garbage (er-um payload).

For parsing, I've used XML-SAX and XML-INTO as well as YAJL and the "new" DATA-INTO (using Scott's YAJLINTO).

Very easy to use... both of these guys have some great tools and great examples.

XML-INTO and DATA-INTO are much easier to use if you go completely free format.

Subject: REST API call from RPG


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
