5.33.2 Using the PDFSpoolFileService

Whether you are writing your client application in RDML / RDMLX or in a 3GL such as RPG, you have to complete the same basic steps.

For example, an application that creates a PDF file from an IBM i spool file would typically issue the following sequence of commands:

JSM(X)_OPENJSM(X)_COMMANDs

     SERVICE_LOAD

        CONNECT

        LIST

        CREATE

        DISCONNECT

        SERVICE_UNLOAD

     SERVICE_UNLOAD

JSM(X)_CLOSE

Refer to Java Service Manager Clients for the command details that apply to your chosen development language.
