Session Abstract: Ever want to enhance RPG programs with PDFs, spreadsheets, charts and graphics, or connect to web services, without complicating your RPG program? Help is here from PHP and DB2.

Alan will show how to accomplish marvelous tasks by calling PHP from ordinary RPG programs via DB2’s web service support, a fast, flexible technique that’s a handy trick in itself.

Learning Objectives:

  1. How to use SQL to call a web service, including a simple PHP-based web service
  2. How RPG can use SQL to call the web service.
  3. Put it together: RPG calls PHP via a web service, creating graphical output from RPG in a simple manner

Who Should Attend:

  1. Those wishing to add non-traditional functionality to RPG programs without adding proprietary or complicated tools
  2. Web developers (PHP, Ruby, etc.) who want their scripts to be accessible from RPG.
  3. Fans of DB2 who wish to see a practical use of the new web service consumption capabilities of DB2.
