Getting Started with Flash Charts using RPG

Today, we will be talking to one of our RPG developers, Alan Smith, who will demonstrate an easy-to-use option for charting your IBM i data.

When it comes to viewing and analyzing data, a text-based interface may not be enough. Visualization can add a whole new dimension of understanding. While RPG wasn’t originally created for graphical representation of data, this task is surprisingly simple today with a browser-based interface powered by RPG. With the right approach and a little help from Flash, it takes very little effort to create stunning 2D or 3D charts and graphs directly from RPG code.

Using JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) on the IBM i

In today’s video, we are going to introduce you to what is perhaps the most elegant way to exchange data within Web applications. We will be talking about JSON, or JavaScript Object Notation. Eric Cassidy, an IBM i web developer at Profound Logic, will demonstrate the concept by creating RPG/CGI AJAX response programs that use JSON to provide multiple pieces of data to a Web application.

Generating an AJAX Response from the IBM i with RPG and PHP

Joining me in today’s video is one of our IBM i web developer/analysts, Hany Elemary. Together, we will continue to discuss AJAX by explaining how to generate a server response to an AJAX request from the browser. Hany will share his thoughts on how AJAX responses are similar to basic dynamic output pages that output data instead of HTML. We then go on to illustrate how AJAX response programs are built by providing examples in two popular IBM i (iSeries/AS400) web development technologies: RPG/CGI and PHP.
