Maybe you should consider IceBreak. E.g. the following COBOL program runs
directly in the os/400 ILE environment.

<%@ language="CBLLE"%><%
*' ------------------------------------------------------------- '*        
 Environment division.                                                     
 Configuration section.                                                    
     copy httpxlink in qasphdr.
*' ------------------------------------------------------------- '*        
 Data Division.                                                            
 Working-Storage Section.                     
     copy httpxdata in qasphdr.
 Procedure Division.                                                       
*' ------------------------------------------------------------- '*        
 Main section.                                                             
*' Insert the html heading text
  <h1>This is a test from a COBOL program running in IceBreak </h1>       
You do NOT need other servers like Apache ? IceBreak has its own Web
Application Server (ILE OS/400).


I hope this can help you.

Subject: [WEB400] Cobol CGI


Is there somewhere a short example for a Cobol CGI?
All the links I find are in RPG, or are unavailable on the Web.

Basically, what I want to do is:
- receive an HTTP POST
- extract the informations in the data
- call another program to have an answer (looks in the database)
- reply to the caller.

It could perhaps be very simple, but I don't know how to start...
I don't even imagine how the program could be called?
