Wrap the RPG program in an external SQL stored procedure. Then you can call it using any SQL compatible driver. It will be much more portable this way.

Should be as easy as making a call to the program. You just need to make sure the program that makes the call returns the appropriate response to the browser so it can report success/failure.

IWS should work, or straight CGI.

We print/reprint a packing list for an order with an RPG program

that should be, today, done on an Intranet. Seems reasonable to me.

Is there an example somewhere of an HTML or JavaScript way to "CALL
PRPACK 'ORD12345'"?
