NHMUG Welcomes Charlie Guarino on Thursday November 21st at the Backyard Brewery in Manchester NH
Interaction between internal and external systems is becoming more the norm. Learn about the use of web services as a way to accomplish this interaction utilizing both XML and JSON.
The PDFs from Charlie's session have been added. Click on the title of the session for that presentation.
Once you have a solid basic understanding of RDi you will want to attend this advanced session that demonstrates many of the finer points of application development. Here is where you can truly customize RDi to watch your development time shrink and performance soar.
XML has quickly become a standard method of encoding data. It can be used for full document transmittals or data provided via a web service.The extraction of this data into useable information is called parsing. RPG provides two different methods for parsing.
This session goes step by step through the entire process of receiving an XML document to successfully parsing it to a database file. The XMLINTO and XML-SAX statements will be reviewed. The challenges and requirements of both statements will be discussed.
At the end of this session, you will be able to identify which parsing method works best for your particular situation. Included with this session are program listings that you can take back and put to use immediately. Updates to this session include i7.1 TR6’s exciting SQL XML processing.
- Gain a basic understanding of XML syntax
- Learn how XML parsing has been implemented into RPG
- See live examples of the XML parsers at work
Now that you’ve been consuming web services, get ready to turn the tables and become the web service provider. Using IBM’s Integrated Web Services server for ILE you too can launch programs to access your database and provide your system’s information to external users such as web developers.
We will go step by step through the process of creating a program to receive a parameter and return database values. Next we will implement this program on to the built-in web services server and demonstrate how to test and deploy it using IBM’s graphical Web Administration tool. Since the tool is wizard-driven deploying web provider side web services has never been easier!
A web service extends your applications in a way that no traditional programming can. They allow you to get real time information for almost any requirement.
We’ll discuss what web services are, how they function and how you can begin using them on your own system. Get step-by-step instructions on the entire Web service process from receiving an XML or JSON document to successfully parsing its information to a display or database file. See working RPG code of an XML parsing program and watch how we consume a RESTful web service.
Updates include i7.1 SQL enhancements which make consuming web services a snap. This session includes source code to get started using dynamic Web services today!
