Bent Ronne,

I've just subscribed so this email is related to but probably not
attached to the relevant thread.

With Apache, the HTTP server will indeed reserve a job just for you to
service your requests, but only if you configure the server do that your
log in authenticates against the OS/400 system password file, (the one
used for green screen sign-on).
Similarly, other users will be assigned jobs of their own, which means
that there is an analogy with regular green screen jobs.
However, the communication still remains stateless, it is just the job
that is persistent.
But it does not pay to rely on accessing anything left in QTEMP from a
previous request since Apache may fire up more than one job for you if
it is attempting to service another of your requests before the previous
one has completed.

Since allowing web users to use OS/400 user profiles may raise security
issues, I would recommend that a server configured this way is
restricted to be accessible only on your internal network (intranet).
Having a large number of such users would pose performance issues
similar to having many green screen users.

Of course, you should know that CGIDEV2 is not the only method.
IBM provided Net.data as a CCI language long before then which lets you
call your native iSeries programs and run CL commands right from your
web page script, as well as many other goodies. It has never failed us
yet as a simple and rapid way to develop web pages, without having to
resort to compilng RPG etc unless necessary.

Cheers, Peter
