This struck a chord with me. It surprises me to hear about people writing their own iSeries socket servers rather than simply connecting their applications to the standard socket server that comes with the box. Even for "totally in-house" applications, just configure the HTTP server to use your port of choice. As far as the problem with large formatted output is concerned, I like the idea of having the servlet or CGI program submit a batch job to process the request. The batch program may incorporate any existing RPG logic, but generate HTML or whatever the desired format is, store it on the IFS, then respond to the original customer with an email message indicating the location of the file to download.
