Application Program Interfaces (APIs) are powerful, built-in tools used to solve business problems. Many System i programmers, however, do not have a working knowledge of the APIs available within i5/OS. Worse still, programmers who are familiar with the use of APIs may not be taking full advantage of the APIs and processing techniques available to them.

In this book, author and noted IBM API expert Bruce Vining is your guide to making sense, and effectively mastering, the wide variety of APIs available with System i. Each chapter is full of real business-world examples that you can modify and use in your own environment.

In recent years, the business programmer has had to integrate applicationsoften from different operating systems and programming platformsusing different languages to integrate business rules and requirements. APIs allow you to gain access to the underlying structure of an application. With this book you will soon realize that APIs are among the most powerful tools in your toolbox.
