In this article I outline two ways of creating web services from existing System i programs. The first approach is to deploy RPG programs in the new IBM Integrated Web Services Server for i, and the second is to create web services in Rational Developer for System i for SOA Construction (RDi SOA). In addition to giving step-by-step instructions, I explain the benefits of each implementation method and provide hints on how to successfully deploy web services in a production environment.
