  • Example RPGLE web service program [SOAP]

January 20, 2015

Here is a quick little example RPGLE web service – it’s written in RPG, the SQLRPGLE flavor and simply reads a file (the System/21 Stockroom master file — INP20) and returns a multi-occurrence data structure (array) of the stockrooms that the user is authorized to use. #hopeithelpssomebody

WEBGETSTR – get all stockrooms for a company code; located in NLITTEN/QRPGLESRC

o H spec defines how the program is running

o Uses SOAP activation group to help identify program

o PGMINFO -defines parameters are in WSDL format

o Inputs – WEGGETSTD

o Return values – Rtn is return value prefix for variable names

o RtnMessage – return message to users

WEBGETSTR – Copybook with input parms
