I suppose you could do a shell_exec to run a program in native OS with the i5php version but I was hoping for some more seamless integration. Where is runs isn't as big an issue of how it runs. If I can have an ILE-like experience in coding the PHP with calling API and programs in i5/OS, I am OK with PASE.
I wish I had a V5R4M0 box so I could play with this a bit. Pete Jon Paris wrote:

It seems to me that this should be a great way for Joe Average to prove the worth of System i as a web server. Problem is you've got to get into PASE and can't get to your RPG/COBOL code unless you wrap them as SQL stored procedures. That's two more hurdles. PASE isn't hard, and we should all be learning stored procs anyway - but it will put people off trying - and that's sad. The good news is that Zend themselves are supporting it.
