HI Stephen

I followed The Nadir's link for normal web services deployment
https://developer.ibm.com/tutorials/i-rest-web-services-server3/

So if you set the http header like

if (%ERROR);
httpStatus = H_SERVERERROR;
return;
endif;

It should work perfectly fine. I got it working for all of the below status
codes.

D H_OK c const(200)
D H_CREATED c const(201)
D H_NOCONTENT c const(204)
D H_BADREQUEST c const(400)
D H_NOTFOUND c const(404)
D H_CONFLICT c const(409)
D H_GONE c const(410)
D H_SERVERERROR c const(500)

This is my suggestion as It worked for me :)

Thanks
Anshul

For more info, see thread below in link..

I have a POST created in IWS that has a struct (JSON) as an Input
parameter. It also uses httpStatus, and httpHeaders. We also return 2
character messages. When everything is goes well, we return 200 and in the
'body' that is returned, we receive the contents of successMessage and
errorMessage in JSON formats.

We've tried to add validation on say items and locations in the Order
(JSON) struct before actually doing anything in the code. I was thinking
we could set the httpStatus to 4xx, set errorMessage to some string, and
IWS would return the errorMessage just like if 2xx. We don't seem to get
anything back in the response.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

Procedure Interface...
Dcl-pi createOrder;
Order likeds(orderInfo);
httpStatus int(10);
httpHeaders char(100) dim(10);
successMessage char(100);
errorMessage char(100);
End-pi;
