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!
RPG-XML Suite was an integral solution in our latest project with CT Logistics in Cleveland, Ohio - a third-party service provider of freight related post audit, pre-audit, business intelligence and transportation management consulting. Using the FreitRater® product allows us to pass rate requirements via XML to their web service, then parse the reply, retrieving rates, mileage, surcharges, etc., that have been auto-calculated from FreitRater®. Once all of our rate matrices are entered into FreitRater®, using the power of RPG-XML Suite makes processing web service data a breeze!
