Glad to know you are still alive, enjoyed your first book!

Don't necessarily agree with the RPG bit though? Would recommend ASP.NET 2.0

for diverse i5 access...

Dave,

First it's important to understand if you're building a web application, no
matter the langauge/tool/etc you use you'll be buidling dynamic HTML, using
Javascript, Stylesheets (hopefully), etc. All that is the same no matter
the tool used.

For my clients I normally ask if they are an RPG shop. If so, I suggest
CGIDEV2 or my eRPG SDK (www.erpgsdk.com).
These allow you to write web application using RPG. So, if you can build
them using RPG and green screens, then this is just changing the delivery
method to use the web.
Which requires the knowledge of HTML, JavaScript, etc.

What architecture/language/tool would you all recommend for developing
an in-house web application that provides the following:

- Menu items that allow users to invoke certain limited
i5 commands,
submit specific i5 jobs, invoke specific i5 programs built in REXX and
other languages under a secondary userid with authorities
- Display current and other user's spoolfiles using another userid
with authorities
- And administrative function that easily allows IS to grant and
revoke access to specific users to individual menu items built in the
web application.

What I'm trying to do is:

- build a web application that will allow some very spoiled users that
have had WAY to many privileges, access to certain specific
capabilities without giving them all the special authorities they've
had in the past.
- build it with a language or tool that has robust capabilities but
doesn't take a master to build anything, supports rapid application
development, is flexible enough to grow with the needs of the
business, doesn't cost a arm and a leg, uses a common language for
which there are human resources easily available on the market

I've done i5 Web applications in .ASP, HTML, Javascript and can do
this job with those tools once again but there might be a better
mousetrap out there so thought I'd ask. I have WebSphere and I think
its Developer tools available on the i5.

Thanks in advance for your advice,

Dave Odom
