The problem is on the IFS that you may write a UTF-8 file on your PC that
has no CCSid
and then dump it in the IFS.

The CCSid then becomes CCSid 1252 even though it actually is CCSid 1208
this may cause
AJAX and DOM to go down.

If the data changes seldom, I don't see any reason not to make it static.
As for security, that question has to be addressed whether the data is
static or dynamic.

Subject: Re: [WEB400] JSON and the IFS

Would this be an "it depends" situation? Take this particular example,
for instance. The data changes once every 4 years or thereabouts why
format the result every time its accessed?

The second part of this would be a response dealing with management's
comfort level of letting just anyone into production data, even if it is

Still, the point is well made; for the iSeries to cast off the pallor of
old age we do need to be able to access real & original data on the fly.
