With the help of RPG-XML Suite I was able to cut my personal project time in half. RPG-XML Suite is a proven toolset that allows for easy creation of XML web services from RPG. I'd recommend it to anyone on the iSeries / System i platform because it runs natively in RPG with Apache giving it excellent performance!
I followed some example code on your website and have a simple app up and running very similar to what my client needs. I just need to adapt it to their JD Edwards World Database. Your software is making me look like a hero!
