Hi, and welcome to the Extending RPG Applications to the Web with EGL blog. This is a blog by some of the IBM i application development tools team members at the IBM Toronto Lab. We've all been involved with RPG and related application development tools for 10+ years (each of us, not cumulative!)
We all believe in using the right tool for the right job. RPG is a very powerful business language on the IBM i. EGL is a powerful language for working with new technologies such as AJAX, JavaServer Faces (JSF)and Web services. So this blog will focus on using the two together; taking business logic written in RPG and providing a Web user interface or Web service interface to it using EGL.
To that end, we hope to provide tips, techniques, stories, pointers and probably even a few questions in this blog. If you are an RPG developer and are using (or looking to use) EGL, we encourage you to comment on blog postings.
