What You Can Expect

This seminar shows you fastest way to get your iSeries or AS/ 400 applications talking to the Web without the need for Java, ASPs, JSPs or Websphere. Everything you require already exists in RPG IV and the iSeries HTTP Server.. CGI allows the system 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. It is the most useful and productive first step in bringing existingapplications to the Web. At the end of the seminar you will be able to:

  • Code HLL programs to write data to a Web page.
  • Understand and write HTML.
  • Use the CGI Application Programming Interfaces.
Who Should Take This Course

This course is for experienced programmers and analysts who wish to upgrade their existing skills. The course is taught in an RPG environment, but what you will learn can be applied equally to COBOL or any High Level Language (HLL).
