making rpc connection to as/400

royalcyber asked
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
We have some images which are  are stored on optical platters, Currently we access them using a 3rd party application  which requires ISeries to access the AS400 (I don't know how the application makes the call to the optical drive).

We need to migrate from this 3rd party application to browser base solution
The indexes are created manually by our Scanning Department. The indexes live on the AS400. Here is the description of the process from our AS400 programmer...

The keyword file (TMM0300) will give you the object ID. Use that to go to the link file (TMM0310). That will give you the document id (aka internal object ID). Use that to get to the document file (TMM0320). That will give you data about the document including the volume and optical path the document resides on.

How do I make a connection from my windows'web server" to the As/400 to retrieve the images ?

Hi royalcyber

What format are the images stored in?
What 3rd party application are the users running to view the images?

For example, stored fax images can be viewed by using the AFP viewer in client access. Migrating to a new platform would be a matter of launching the same app. Those other tables are used to map your search criteria to a specific file location.
