Hidden Gems for IBM i – Remote Procedure Call (RPC)

Posted by Francisco Hoya on Oct 13, 2013 11:00:00 PM

RPC is definitely one of the hidden gems on IBM i.  

RPC can easily call IBM i commands, IBM i APIs and IBM i Program objects without any setup of the complexities such as driver installation, or the injection of code into IBM i programs. In order to use RPC you just need to start the RPC server on the IBM i (which is typically started by default) and then call it. It’s simple and powerful and brings IBM i applications to remote devices.
