well, i am not sure if this works, but i thought i'll give it a try. This is where i am now:
We have used Web-Facing tool (which was part of WDSC ver 5.1) and converted an AS400 app, to a webfaced application & everything works fine.
In one of the screens( i mean a JSP), when i enter some data & submit, at the back-end a number of Cobol & CL programs are executed (which is what would be happening if you run the AS400 application on iseries). What i want to include is, ok i am going to call a java program from a CL program using:
this is part of the main(String args) method... of the java program, that i am calling from a CL program. I definitely know that this would call the servlet doGet() /doPost() methods..
I have tested this, but tested by calling a java program( with the above code) from WDSC workbench.. and that is what it has done.
BUT when i am talking about CL prog calling a java program, i am not really sure, what is happening.. but something is going wrong !!! i am not that good about AS400, so i could not understand the Joblog... ( this is calling CL prog from webfaced app ).
Anyway it works fine when the app is run as an AS400 app (not a webfaced app), in the sense the java program is executing when you call the CL program on the AS400...
Do you have any idea, on what is going wrong, when i am calling it from the webfaced application??
This is part of the job log:
So, is the problem because of calling a servlet from a java program?? is this possible?? Incase this is possible, since the servlet got a request from a java program (though the java program was called from a CL program, which was called from a browser) will it respond back to browser ???
I know this msg looks big, but i'm sorry, i just wanted to make everything clear.. It would be really great, if anybody here can help me on this matter..
Thanks again for your great help :-)
