You can call stored procedures with with PHP, too.

Michael,
We might consider PHP if it were extensible enough for enterprise apps
but absolutely don't need anything that orients itself to RPG. Any
database calls need to be one with ANSI standard SQL.
Your point about resource use by WAS is my experience as well.
Thanks,

Has anyone considered PHP with the i5 toolkit. It is a very powerful
when
used with style sheets. The toolkit allows you to use RPG (program
calls),
native database and MySql, data queues, data areas. The learning curve
is
MUCH smaller for a RPG programmer than java. Also, the resources used
by it
i5 is much less than WAS. The internet is plastered with coding
examples
too.

I think recommendations have to be made based on the needs and
existing
infrastructure of a company. With that said and being this is a list
where
I am guessing everyone has an System i5 in house, Brad's recommendation
for
RPG CGI is quite valid. Going the RPG CGI route (for an RPG shop)
allows
them to cash in on existing knowledge and hardware investments (talking
many
hundreds of thousands of dollars even for a shop with only 5
developers).

What advantages does ASP.NET 2.0 have over RPG CGI for a shop with a
wealth
of RPG knowledge? I think when people make recommendations of ASP.NET
they
don't realize how much change needs to take place to facilitate
enterprise
level computing (read solid business apps).

Brad

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
