I would like to prompt OS/400 commands on the web using HTML (or any other web tool). I assume the best way to do it is by generating the XML file using the QCDRCMDD (Retrieve Command Definition) API and utilizing it using some kind of prompting tool. I know how to generate the XML file. I wonder if anyone utilized the XML output to prompt commands in a web environment. Thanks

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

the method to apply an XSL style sheet to an XML result in a web page is described (partialy) at the end of the page http://jplamontre.free.fr/AS400/NetData.htm

there are samples for
- generating a new page
- updating partially a page (something like is now known as AJAX, but here it is synchonous)

    Thank you, JPL. I found that there is a java toolkit called JTOpen. One of its classes is CommandPrompter - which is very similar to the command prompter used by the "Operations Navigator" in Management Central. I tested it and it works and give very nice GUI for command prompting. I need to stripe out the connection to the OS/400. For some reason, the source code for this specific class is not available in the JTOpen, I have to find a way to do it. Thanks
