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?
