Web-enabling legacy system using XML

I am developing a project on a Web-enabling legacy system using XML. I need to call RPG programs running on V4R5 from WebSphere running on iSeries 400. I have a limitation of installing any third-party utilities in the iSeries. Please suggest a solution as early as possible.

The easiest way to connect a Java bean to an RPG program is using DB2 stored procedures. The article I wrote in this link gives all the Details.

You can call the RPG program passing parms and receiving results from Java directly by Declaring the procedure before calling OR register it first in the database and then call it.

iSeries shops are placing Web development and Web enablement at the top of their priority lists. But if you're just starting out, where do you begin? There are so many options that choosing the one right may seem like an impossible task.

Jim Mason, president of ebt-now, talked with assistant editor Deb Tart recently at the Northeast IBM User Conference in Framingham, Mass., about tools and techniques for developing for the Web and what his Web tool preferences are.
