Hi David,

If you want to get the open source framework working, I'll be glad to help you.  But, I do recommend trying our commercial offering if you haven't yet done so.  The open source framework is for more advanced/experienced programmers who are interested in the internals of how our framework works.  The commercial offering, however, is perfect for beginners.

To answer your questions:

"... I can call the program from my browser and get this strange response..."

The CGIDEV2 program that you're running is an API meant to be called by the Profound UI framework rather than called directly. The response you're getting is correct, and shows that this API is working, so the next step would be to set up your html file to call it.

Take a look at the custinq.html file in the examples directory. You'll need to change the pui.controller variable in that html file to point to the CGIDEV2 program that you referenced.


"1) Are we supposed to put folder profoundlogicui-framework-master off of / of the ifs? (root)"

I guess that'd depend on your Apache configuration, but off of the root would be a very bizarre place.  Typically you'd put it under /www/YOUR-APACHE-INSTANCE-NAME-HERE/htdocs subdirectory.


"2) where does everything go to make this method work?"

What do you mean by "everything?"  If you're asking where to unzip the profound ui framework, see my response to #1.


"3) Where is the /closure directly the following refers to"

Closure is a tool from Google, and is not part of the framework itself.  You can search for it and find/download it on the internet (its free) if you want.  However, you will only need it if you plan to change the code in the profound ui framework itself.  (You don't need it to develop your own applications.)

Good Luck

hopefully I have embedded the image links correctly. thanks Admin. :)

I Continue to flail around with CGIDEV2. I found Scott Klements "Three Approaches to the Web with RPG" Presentation. He presents using the Profound Logic open source framework with CGIDEV2. Scott includes the GitHub link in the presentation. https://github.com/ProfoundLogic/profoundui-framework The presentation uses an example which is contained in the download from GitHub.


The download is a /zip file of a folder profoundlogicui-framework-master. I have read the readme.md file a number of times and still am not able to discern how to set this up. There is another Readme in the examples folder of the download. I have compiled the RPGLE program. I do have a working server with which I can call the program from my browser and get this strange response.. (I have been able to get the easy400 examples working. )
