RDi: New Tools Announcements

It's time for us dinosaurs to get out of the tar pits. RDi is here to stay.

We've heard lots of reasons not to use the GUI tools IBM has (not so) gently nudged us toward: WebSphere Development Studio Client for System i (WDSC) was way too much tool for RPG developers. It was too big, too slow, too cumbersome, too limited. Even if those were valid reasons, they have been alleviated bit by bit with each release, culminating in the final breakup of the tool into various offerings, including Rational Developer for i (RDi).

The API Corner: Finding Modules in a *SRVPGM

Are you aware of what you can do with the QBNLSPGM API?

In the last article, "Module, Module, Who's Got My Module?", we wrote an application to find all *SRVPGMs that had a given *MODULE bound into them. We saw the first version of our program, MODUSAGE, but didn't have the opportunity to examine it. We'll do so now. For space reasons, the program is not being repeated in this article, so you may want to review the previous article.
