I’ve been waiting for a simple free-format RPG editor for the longest time. Opensource ILEditor delivers. It’s free, open source, actively maintained and growing in support. It’s quick and simple to use, and I can already see that as it’s popularity grows new functions will be easy to add. #nice The Author is Liam Allen […]

Windows Setup for IBM i Developers

Every propeller head takes some kind of perverse joy from wiping and reinstalling their Windows Machine. I know I do. After a year of various software installs, un-installs, re-installs, tweaks, hacks, dicking around (that’s a technical term) my Windows machine starts to get twitchy and a little punch drunk. It’s time for a fresh install and […]

Use RDi to make RPGLE lowercase

Internet fact #173 – If you make RPGLE lowercase it looks a lot prettier! If you’ve ever read any of my many waffling techno-blogs about programming with the RPG language you will know that I have a bit of a love/hate relationship IBM’s Rational Developer code editor. But, just sometimes it does really small, but […]

How to add the Turnover V100 Perspective to WDSC7

OK. So we already agree that using WDSC for IBM i software editing, for free, is pretty cool. But, adding Turnover V100 to it, so you can do everything from one place is even cooler. Once we have added the Turnover perspective to our existing WDSC7 setup then we can flick between perspectives to edit/compile […]

RPG4 is not a new Rocket Propelled Grenade

I occasionally get an email from RPG programmers out there in IBMi-Land who have spent the last decade gently plodding along in RPG3 and RPG400 and now face the daunting prospect of having to hone there RPG skills and learn RPG4 (or RPG-LE or /FREE as its also called).

IBMi + WDSC7.0 + TN5250 = Wow Squared!

WebSphere Development Tools for IBMi is Very Very Very Cool! I’ve just installed WDSC7.0 for the first time (/me ducks from the barrage of rotten fruit launched at him from the rowdy-RDi-crowd) and have almost had a religious experience with it.

Download and Update WebSphere Development Studio Client WDSC7 for free

UPDATED 2017: IBM Rational Developer for i is my preferred RPG code development tool. It’s expensive but I believe its worth the cost to access all the latest and greatest enhancements to the evolving RPG language.
