I just tried that route as well but lost me on the pcml requirement. Not wanting to go there. Is there a way around that?

Consider using the IWS wizard and setting up for REST web services? Ignore the SOAP pieces and use the REST.

I am a novice at it but it does what you are asking for, without YAJL. Much simpler on the RPG end; and the server setup is 10 minutes (once you see how it is set up).

The wizard interview messed me up but it is pretty straight forward.

create/configure my HTTP server to accept a program with 2 parms...

d myPgm pi
d jsonINP like(jsonOBJ)
d jsonOUT like(jsonOBJ)

Can someone help me with that?

I'm setting out to establish a POC for our company using SK's guide at


I have the http server created and running.
I have YAJL deployed to the i.
I have YAJLCALLR compiled into YAJLREST lib.

I'm trying to logically progress down the path in small steps so I can
understand the moving pieces.

When I invoke from the browser... http://ourSystem:port/rest/YAJLCALLR I
would expect to at least see the *pgm object of YAJLCALLR last used date
set to today instead of remaining blank?

I'm at a loss (early in the game unfortunately) as to what I'm missing.
The good news is that I have written many YAJL rpg pgms at another
employer who had already had the endpoint setup - though slightly different
than what Scott shows in his guide.

So if I can just get over this initial configuration hump, I'm thinking I
should be home free.

Any help would be appreciated,
