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.
