Is it possible to execute an iSeries program from a VB.Net application?

Is it possible to execute an iSeries program from a VB.Net application? Where might I find some reference material that would get me started?

Hi, Ken

yes, it is possible.

How - depends on what you have to connect to iSeries. I would suggest to go
to IBM site and start from products you have available. In simplest form it
is possible through FTP connection. Check which commands are available on
host and go from there.

Do it just like you would a s stored proc in SQL. The only difference
instead of putting the program name for the SP you have to use the call
command (i.e. call <program name>).

Take a look at IBM's access product. It used to be called Client Access.

Hope this helps.
