Re: Creating Web services through IBMs Integrated Web Services Server

This isn't really the right forum - maybe web400 at midrange.com ... but

I believe you can have more than one service on each server - but I don't know the details. But why do it that way?  If you are experienced with CGIDEV2 why not use it to create a REST (or any other kind for that matter) web service?  I think Scott has written on the topic and I have also done so - see http://www.ibmsystemsmag.com/ibmi/developer/rpg/web_service_rest/  I strongly suspect that it will perform a lot better than integrated web server approach.

I believe that Henrik also has useful features for building web services in his powerExt tool set (powerext.com) which is based on CGIDEV2.
