e-RPG Powertools – Stone on CGIDEV2 (CGID)
Author: Bradley V. Stone

Hands-on Training
for Maximizing IBM's free
RPG Web Development Tools

This training manual starts you off by explaining how to download, install and configure the CGIDEV2 toolkit on your AS/400. It then takes you through each of the subprocedures included in the toolkit. Each section clearly explains how and when to use each subprocedure as well as any input and output parameters that are required. Understanding what you are doing is just as important as actually doing it. And these chapters will really open your eyes to the fantastic power and functionality of the CGIDEV2 toolkit.

The chapters that follow show you how to use each of the subprocedures in a real programming environment. Even if you're a beginner, the first example will get you started quickly and easily with the "Hello World" application. The training manual goes on to explain and give examples of outputting dynamic content using CGIDEV2's trademark, the HTML template.

These templates allow you to create web pages with substitution variables. Then, in your program you simply reference this template and replace the substitution variables with the data you want displayed. This means that you no longer have to code any HTML inside your RPG programs! Also included are sections on how to use the debugging and messaging facilities included with the CGIDEV2 toolkit. Anyone who has done web development knows that debugging applications can be a tedious and time consuming chore. But, this course will show you how using the supercharged functionality of the CGIDEV2 toolkit can make debugging and message reporting a snap! There is an entire chapter devoted to showing you how all of the pieces of the CGIDEV2 toolkit fit together by creating your own e-Store, complete with shopping basket!

This application will also show you how you can easily create web "cookies" with your RPG web applications and use them so that customers returning to your Web site do not have to sign in every time, making their experience very pleasant (and your programming very professional). CGIDEV2 is the next step in e-RPG programming. It makes development, maintenance and implementation of web applications a cinch!

Skill Level: Experience with RPG computer programming, CGI Programming, Web Page design and HTTP Configuration and database.  This course is not intended as a beginners CGI programming course.
