Dave,
I don't want to turn this into a Zend forum so please view
http://www.zend.com/products/zend_core/zend_for_i5_os?jsrc=w400 and on
click on Download on the right side of the page.

The products listed below are free (Core & Studio) but there are others
items does charge for. I will address your questions once you download
(or just send me a personal email: jdillard@xxxxxxxx) and I'd be happy
to provide answers to all of your questions.

Regards,
Jim Dillard

Jim,

Thanks for the info. How can I get a trial? Or,did I hear correctly
the entire product set is a free download?

Are there any tools that help developing the application faster? If so,
which ones and what do they do?

Thanks much,

Dave

Dave,
Yes, your information in incorrect. No need to use ODBC as you access
DB2/400 directly with PHP when using Zend Core for i5/OS.

Many people in the System i community WERE running PHP on Linux or
Windows and connecting to DB2/400 via ODBC. With Core you can run the
application natively on the 400 thereby negating the need to use ODBC.


For those that don't know: Core for i5/OS, Studio for i5/OS (IDE), and
web-based support are all free. You can thank IBM for this.

Michael et al,

It appears that PHP or at least the Zend version, only accesses DB2/400
via ODBC? I was hoping it would use one of the better access methods
like OLE DB or Net.Data or the like. Is my information incorrect? Is
there a way to use Java to access DB2/400 and PHP for the presentation
layer?

If only ODBC access, this is a severe drawback to me.

Thanks,

Dave

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
