Presentation notes

Now that you’ve been consuming web services directly get ready to turn the tables and become the web service provider. Using IBM’s Integrated Web Services server for ILE you too can launch programs to access your database and provide your system’s information to external user such as web developers. We will go step by step through the process of creating a program to receive a parameter and return database values. Next we will implement this program on to the built-in web services server and demonstrate how to test and deploy it using IBM’s graphical Web Administration tool. Since the tool is wizard-driven deploying web provider side web services is a snap!
