Raising the Bar – A Jumpstart to Using SOAP Web Services in RPG

The Internet abounds with available services using Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP).  The process of consuming these services from your programs is a bit tricky, that is until you use one of IBM’s latest tools WSDL2RPG, which is a component of Integrated Web Services (IWS).   This tool does the heavy lifting for you and sets up an entire environment with a callable RPG service program.   And the best part is this V5R4 and above tool is FREE!  Refuse to be intimidated!  In this session we’ll work with the tool and review step-by-step the process of testing and consuming a SOAP web service and displaying its information in a working RPG display program.   Learn how you can leverage this technology so your applications can explode beyond your own four walls and gain access to vast information resources on the web in real-time.   Here is a great place to start your learning - http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/i/software/iws/documentation.html 


RPG programmers who want to incorporate web services into their enterprise applications, regardless if the service provider is around the block or across the globe.
