Thanks Tim for including the youtube videos. They never turned up in my google searches. I did a quick skim of them and they might be more of what I was looking for because I am after the down and dirty, not the overview of what is can do. I will review them closer over the next week or two.

Using the fast forward method (clicking and jumping ahead), it looks like the one is for SQL not programs and I couldn't tell for sure what the second one did. Do either of these show how to configure a new service using *PGM or *SRVPGM objects where source is also available for the programs? That will allow me to look at both sides to understand how they talk to each other.

So you know, the docs that I was referring to as being old and out of date are located here... https://developer.ibm.com/tutorials/i-rest-web-services-server2/. This is part 2 of a 3 part series posted in 2015.

Greetings.

The doc for the IWS support...the integrated Rest API engine is updated
regularly,
- [1]https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/integrated-web-services-ibm-i-web-services-made-easy

Near the bottom of the page is a link to the Red book like doc that has
lots of details.

Additionally, there are a couple of youtube vides on this support that
could be helpful.

>From the responses that I'm getting, I should have been a little
clearer in
my request.

I have been writing C#.Net REST services for a while and wanted to play
with
RPGLE. I already understand REST services, I just can't figure out how
to
configure the service on the IBM i. I am the type of developer that
needs a
working example so I can play with it and learn from it what I need to
do to
make it do what I want it to do. I have tried to go through the
configuration but nothing I have found matches up with the screens my
system
provides so I'm not sure what parts of the config are doing what and now
to
do the config. The IBM developer pages are from 2015 and aren't even
close
to the current version. I am running V7.3.

Are you looking to consume web service or provide them (sounds like the
latter).

Have you any CGI experience with RPG? There's not a lot of difference
if
you want to use RPG and Apache for it.
