Web Query includes an optional Developer Workbench client. When upgrading the Web Query release or group PTF level, users who installed the client on their workstation must refresh it. The level of the Developer Workbench client must match that of the base Web Query product running on the IBM i.
The Qshell environment is used for processing Web Query CL commands. The subsystem the CL program is running in, generally QBATCH, must be configured to allow at least 2 additional jobs to be created. This can be verified through the MAXJOBS parameter on the subsystem description. MAXJOBS - CURRENT NUMBER OF JOB >= 2. This allows for the Qshell Interpreter job and a child job to run the necessary function. The user profile the CL command is running under should specify a locale that is valid for the CCSID and language ID of the job running the command. For more information, refer to
