How to Edit UIM MENUs with Rational Developer for IBM i

… and I found that Rational Developer for IBM i doesn’t come out of the box ready to edit UIM MENU source types!

So, if like me, you are playing with UIM Menu’s make sure you add the source type menu to RDi to enjoy a cleaner editing experience.
