This presentation examines the synergy between both languages. Many programmers already know how to embed SQL in their RPG programs. What about embedding RPG in your SQL? What about using SQL within ILE subprocedures and using ILE subprocedures as SQL functions? This session examines some of the more sophisticated ways that these two languages interact.
