Re: XML Parsing no longer supported by IBM in 7.5?

Thanks Scott. We are just going to 7.5 and installed it on our test LPAR and were running some tests which I was not a part of. We are very conservative letting a release be out for a while before we upgrade. It takes over a year to perform a complete upgrade as we have over 60 LPAR's.

XML Parsing no longer supported by IBM in 7.5?

My boss just told me that XML parsing is no longer supported by IBM in 7.5. Is that true? Does that mean that IBM is going to treat XML-INTO and DATA_INTO like SEU and not evolve them? I know IBM won't drop these operation codes from RPG. Is it fair to say that the expectation from IBM is that softw...

Re: Converting Hundred Year Date Plus Time to Timestamp

It does not contain HHMMSS. It's just a number. Here is what the 2 fields values are: 100 YR TRANS DATE TRANS. TIME 42,109 170,931 42,109 171,058 42,142 111,027 42,254 31,357 42,254 35,251 42,254 40,432 42,254 40,915 42,444 75,103 42,444 80,958

Converting Hundred Year Date Plus Time to Timestamp

I have a 5 digit field that contains a 100 year date (Number of days difference between the current date and 1899-12-31) and a 5 digit time field (HHMMSS) and I need to convert them to an *ISO timestamp. They are in a a very old file. How would I do that? Thanks.

When I start the HTTP service and I post a request it is consumed by the program correctly and returns ...

QDCXLATE Not converting the brackets in JSON String

We use QDCXLATE to convert ASCII to EBCDIC for JSON string that come through a web service. It doesn't convert the JSON brackets [ ] correctly. We tried both QEBCDIC and QTCPEBC and it did not work. Got like a '?' instead. We are trying now to use CCSID(1208) on the JSON string to see if that works....
