RPG Web Development
| RPG for the Web!
What works is what already you are using:
your AS/400 and RPG!
Not only for Internet, also for Graphical Applications in the intranet Company.
works in any AS/400 model
You don't need any additional machines nor applications.
Uses Batch jobs. No interactive feature needed.: cheaper machines and lower software group.
Helps also in the http server configuration and other related tasks, not only in programming.
Using the basic of the Web: HTML.
You can design the pages with any full featured wysiwyg editors like FrontPage or DreamWeaver, knowing only a little HTML.
100% Compatible with all the existing in the iSeries: Data bases, calls to programs, code snippets...
How it works?
What you need in 400?
What you need in PC?
RPG For Web lets you to develop html Graphical Applications for Internet Browsers using the IBM iSeries 400 and RPG IV (ILE Cobol could also be used ).
The development of Web applications counts on multiple platforms, tools, ways of use, languages, types of files,
and so on.
Using what Works
The success of the traditional IBM iSeries Applications is founded on good part in the languages oriented to the world of the business that are used: RPG and (to a lesser extent) Cobol. Of course, important aspect of how these languages work is the people who design & write them: the professionals of the AS/400.
With all this accumulated experience and security, RPG can be also a good option for the development of web applications, and the iSeries platform is totally compatible with the necessary standards:
With all the advantages
The web development using RPG has many benefits, that are not perhaps hefted sufficiently before considering "to move" the Web to another platform, with other languages, other professionals...
How to use this approach
This model of development is ideal to
create new applications or modules.
The important thing is to emphasize that applications can be done using mainly our skills, without reduction in results.
What contributes Rpg For Web?
It is a set of functions that enormously allow and facilitate the development in Web environment, doing simple the related tasks.
RPG For Web includes not only functions to facilitate the programming, also functions to help in configuration, run and debug phases.
