RE: Creating Web services through IBMs Integrated Web Services Server

From the 'Application Servers' Tab of the 'IBM Web Administration for
i', select the 'Deploy New Service' and that will bring up the Wizard.
Really Simple to use.

See step 4 of this link:

Subject: Creating Web services through IBMs Integrated Web Services

I have studied Scott's paper 'Web Services for RPGers' with great 

My first simple web service - type Hello World - was up an running and 
tested  within 20 minutes just by following Scotts eminent step by step 
These instructions helped me not only to create the web service - but
the web service server to run it on - great... 

BUT it might be that I missed out on something - I keep looking for a 
button to ADD more web services to run on the same web services server. 
Cannot find such an option - and I end up creating one new server (on a 
separate port) pr RPG-program I want to turn into a web service 
- That cannot be the IDEA ??? 
Can somone help me as to how i create MANY web services to run on the
web services server ??

The idea is to create hundreds of small webservices - for different 
functions - in a development project  to enable front end developers
no RPG-knowledge) to help us create a GUI version of our ERP-software. 
(so far we have used CGIDEV2 for bits and pieces of web development -
on that platform we are not able to hire more  staff    -  but there are

lots of java based frontenders around.) 

The first step is to check out different options - and the IDEA of many 
small RPGs with  input/output parametes as a basis to create 
webservices/WSDLs to serve java/frontend developers seemed like a good 
But mabe its not - Any Views  ??? 

An other option we are investigating is to continue using CGIDEV2, but 
turn in the direction that the CGI server programs delivers JSON object 
directly to the browser..
The front end developers then will have to work with html/javascript/js 
framewoks/ajax/css  totally indepent  of  java-based  application server

as a  'midle layer'. 
To us that seems as an easier approch - but we do not know  if that kind

of expertise is harder to find then java developers.. 

Our  company isn't that big - so we have to keep total costs in mind -
the same time as we NEED to modernize 
and we do believe that the technique we end up with has to be meinstream

in the sence tha we should be able tu use front end developers with no
All the bussines logic skoud stay on the server/RPG-levels and should
be acessible to the front end through defined calls... 

Anyone that has some ideas as to point us in the right direction ???
