What language do they use?

If RPG, check out RPG-XML Suite: rpg-xml.com

If they're open to non-RPG options then things like Node.js make it dead
simple to do web services (no Apache/Tomcat config necessary, Node.js
includes its own webserver).

litmis.com - Services for open source on IBM i

I have a customer that is about to take the plunge into web services. They
first need to choose if they use WAS 8.5 Express, IWS or TOMCAT. Some of
the IBM i instances have the Zend server so they would use that when
available. Next they need a good primer about design and implementation.
I've found the basic web sites from IBM but I'm wondering if the group has
some suggestions on best practices and resources to use.

The customer is at V7R1 now but will be at V7R2 very soon and potentially
V7R3 by end of year. Any comments on the IBM i environment as it relates
web services would be welcome as well.

While I can build and deploy a simple web service, I am far from an expert
therefore my request to you.
