IBM i API Integration

Looking for API integration with your IBM i system? is here for you.

Integration Using Java

Java is one of the most reliable options to integrate APIs into IBM i Power Systems because it:

  1. Supports both SOAP and REST API.
  2. Easily manipulates complex requests and responses.
  3. Handles multimedia formats (like files and images).
  4. Can be used as a wrapper to upload API content
  5. Calls RPG programs from Java to perform business logic.

Integration using IBM i tools

The IBM i platform is compatible with many useful tools that increases its functionality.

  1. Uses open-source tools like the LibHTTP to call external API.
  2. Incorporates IBM i Db2 SQL functions to make HTTP calls directly from SQL statements.
  3. IBMi Db2 SQL functions can be used to parse the information received by HTTP calls and store them in relational tables in Db2.

Integrating IBM i with third-party and e-Commerce platforms

IBM i applications are robust and secure compared to other applications. There’s no limit to what you can achieve with AS400 when you integrate with the right third-party technologies. For example, Warehouse management systems, CRMs, security applications, EDIs, and other cloud services can be added to the base program to magnify the functions to personalize AS400 so it exactly what is needed.

The same is true when you have your online marketplace built up on IBM i. Magento e-commerce streamlines the online purchasing process while IBM i continues to process transactions safely, securely, and quickly.

Why IBM i/AS400 Development for your project?

For years, organizations and technology experts considered AS400 obsolete. However, when we look at its characteristics and the importance of this system in its updated format, we discover that AS400 cannot be ignored. Today, it is still one of the most integral systems for enterprises, manufacturing, finance, and other industries.

We know AS400 systems include an extensive library-based operating system. IBM i Power Servers support multiple servers and server tools such as AIX, Linux, Lotus Domino. Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 is supported with either single-processor internal blade servers (IXS) or externally linked multiple-processor servers (IXA and iSCSI). Internet Small Computer System Interfaces (iSCSI) are supported using the IBM BladeCenter. Windows, Linux, and VMware ESX(VI3) all support iSCSI attached servers using IBM’s blade server.

Other important features include:

  • Logical portioning
  • Db2 Mirror
  • Common client-server support

RPGLE-the most secure and robust language

RPGLE or RPG IV is the latest version used for IBM i application development. Although companies are migrating to new platforms, there are ways of migrating the frontend to a new platform while keeping the old RPG code intact. This includes some simple and easy procedures:

  • One simple solution is refacing or transforming the green screen into a GUI. Refacing makes the interface user-friendly by giving it a browser-based look and feel without any programming changes.
  • The common green screen can be enhanced by using RPG Open Access to separate the business logic from the UI, allowing the same business logic to be used on multiple UIs.

Benefits of IBM i development from PIO

  • Our programmers have in-depth knowledge of a variety of tools and bring a wealth of technological expertise.
  • They follow functional specifications to create technical documentation and develop pseudo codes.
  • They locate issues when troubleshooting and diagnosing your business processes.
  • Our programmers can modernize your legacy code, integrate your ERP or EDI solutions, and develop and maintain applications.
  • If you need support for existing software, our team can debug, locate, and solve issues.
