RPG Meets the Web

Duration

2 days

What the Course Covers

This is the fastest way to get your iSeries applications talking to the web. You don't need Java, ASPs, JSPs or Websphere. You already have everything you need in RPG IV and the HTTP Server - the only other addition you need is the FREE CGIDEV2 tool.

How Can You Apply the Skills You Will Learn?

CGI programming allows you to make your data available through RPG, COBOL or any HLL, for enquiry or update, on standard HTML web pages on the internet or intranet. You will be able to:
  • code RPG IV programs to write data to a web page
  • understand and write basic HTML
  • understand the purpose of the CGI APIs
  • use the CGIDEV2 APIs to communicate with a web page

Who Should Attend

Programmers and Analysts who wish to leverage their existing skills to write programs which communicate with a web page.
