Is it possible to consume REST APIs from IBM I without any new languages or frameworks? Yes with SQL UDF now. REST APIs are everywhere now providing the interface for cloud storage services, IoT Devices, AI or Machine Learning services. All of the above and even more can be consumed with REST API without any ETL or ESB tools and directly from IBM I. Will explore setting up the Amazon S3 buckets, consuming the data in a bucket by REST API and finally converting the JSON data into a table on IBMI. All of these steps will be shown in one simple embedded SQL RPG program example.
