Hi Brad,

| Thanks for the plug!

You deserve it!

Yes, the string handling has greatly improved. I remember redefining strings as arrays, so I could traverse the characters. Brrr!

Hi, Joep.

Thanks for the plug! The book is still a little worthwhile, except for the
HTTP config stuff which was back when it was the CERN based HTTP server,
not Apache. :)

I also didn't cover parsing URLs as that wasn't a thing then for web
services (I still think it's a little cumbersome, and prefer good old
fashioned name/value pairs, but oh well! ).

I have done a few projects where I had to parse the URI. If they get very
verbose it can get a little cumbersome, though. But, with all the new
%bifs in RPG string parsing is getting quite simple! I no longer need my
big STRINGS service program to do most of it. :)

Dave,

Do you know that (the always helpful) Brad wrote a few books about this
stuff, 25 years ago, when it was all new to us AS/400 folks and we had
to program it all ourselves?

Yep, you'll need to parse the URI.

Hello,

Just checking, I don't see how this is possible: I'm getting the
variables
after the "?" from QUERY_STRING, but how about those in the actual URI ?

http://localhost:8080/shop/order/1001/receipts?date=12-05-2017

I presume it's up to my program to get order=1001 from the URI
