I have a SAS application that normally runs as a batch operation against our entire account database. Now we have a requirement to call this SAS application interactively from existing desktop and web applications for single accounts. What would be the best way to take this SAS application with as little modification as possible and make it so it can be called 'real time' rather than in a batch environment? Is there a way to take an existing procedure and turn it into a web service?
The quickest way, in my mind, is to make the basic program as stored process with a parameter and then make sure you can execute the stored process from EG or the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office or from Web Report Studio or from the Info Delivery Portal.
After you make that work, then you could go down the road of building a custom web service/custom application/custom servlet. But, you might find that folks were happy with submitting the SP from EG or Excel or Word or WRS and maybe you didn't NEED to make a custom web service or custom app to call a stored process:
At any rate, some examples of making custom -apps- for the BI Platform or the Enterprise Intelligence Platform can be found here:

Thanks, I'll check out your links.

BTW - We are not creating a new custom application, but rather adding this new feature to an existing Visual Basic application.
