Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Your best bet is probably to setup a <a href=”http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=cron+job+tutorial&aq=1&aqi=g10&aql=&oq=cron+job&gs_rfai=”>cron job</a>.

If you’ve got access to both sites, a new fangled way to do it would be websockets.

    Since a "cron job" has no relevance to iSeries, perhaps a few alternatives are in order. First, it depends on what is meant by "send an XML file every 5 min". Does that mean the job must create (and send) a new file every 5 min? Or does it simply send a specified XML file every 5 min, even if it hasn't been changed? Or does it mean something else? And how is the "send" expected to be done? FTP? Mapped drive? (Web services? Something else entirely?) Tom
