"After exploring a variety of options, we landed on RPG API Express and decided to give the free trial a go; we utilized the free proof of concept to prove its excellence. Continental Express is a large trucking company, and our legacy system uses many complex API’s, including EDI transactions and reporting data with positional updates every minute to customers. We utilized RPG API Express in undertaking our largest project, a new IOS app developed in-house to replace the current form of communication (Qualcomm) in all our trucks..."
With the assistance of RPG API Express, we’re creating internal JSON exit points for our IOS app that are quickly implemented in IOS code. The RXS integrations are fast and reliable, and the JSON integrations can be created in under 5 minutes using data parsed and updated to DB2 without any problems. If not for RXS the task would have taken longer and likely, not given as robust a result. Frankly, other “free” tools on the market do not offer the same support or reliability for future releases. With RPG API Express supplementing our iSeries environment’s security, we are more confident in our overall data security.
The support team for RPG API Express is very knowledgeable and their response time is better than the rest. I would recommend it to any iSeries company."Ron Koontz Continental Express, Inc
"RPG API Express is an excellent tool. I first came across the tool when working on an application for a customer that runs several hundred Web Service transactions each day. I was using an open source tool originally and ran into some major problems with reliability at peak times. I went looking for a commercial package and installed the trial..."
Installation was complete in minutes, and the tool plugged in very easily to my application. Immediately, my problems were solved. RPG API Express had all of the features I needed and always performed reliably – even at peak times. I immediately recommended it to my customer and they have not had a failed transaction since. Since then, I have recommended RPG API Express to many satisfied customers and will continue to do so in the future."David Russo Profound Logic Software, Inc.
"RPG API Express was an integral solution in our latest project with CT Logistics in Cleveland, Ohio – a third-party service provider of freight related post audit, pre-audit, business intelligence and transportation management consulting..."
Using the FreitRater® product allows us to pass rate requirements via XML to their web service, then parse the reply, retrieving rates, mileage, surcharges, etc., that have been auto-calculated from FreitRater®. Once all of our rate matrices are entered into FreitRater®, using the power of RPG API Express makes processing web service data a breeze!"Phil Knox Lone Star Transportation
"We decided to try the free trial and contacted Kato Integrations to support us through implementing a proof of concept. They got us started with some skeleton code for composing (Outbound) and de-composing (Inbound) XML. Within a matter of days I had adapted the code to work with our own systems and had a working compose/de-compose proof of concept which produced XML Files – validated with the browser and bank. The support and communication I received from Kato Integrations for this was second to none. Furthermore I would also say that the design and general concepts of RPG API Express potentially saved months of development time. Having worked on developing soft-coded utilities over the years, I could safely say that, had I the time, this would have been the exact approach I would have taken. The design concept is very impressive..."
RPG API Express is unique. It is purely aimed at RPGLE developers, with no need for any other programming skills – including a very small learning curve.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this product. I currently have this project in user acceptance testing being hammered by a team of 20 testers. It is the biggest and most important project for the company. RPG API Express has been great – no problems or issues. In fact, the proof of concept code has since been easily adaptable for even the most complex conditional XML. It works, and it stays that way. I found the support extremely helpful and responsive to my needs. Not only that, I’m a purist at heart and some of the developments I have seen over the years for client-server applications quite frankly make me weep. RPG API Express is top quality – and I’m not easy to please."Michael Nolan RSA Insurance
