We conclude our exciting homily to modernization, theBlack Stone Cherry of the IT world, with a thrilling chapter on the final component of the modernization triangle.
Written by David Shirey
First a quick review. We opened this discussion two months ago by talking about how closely the word modernization is linked with the idea of replacing green-screens with GUI and making more extensive use of SQL. But I think it's questionable whether merely changing your tools or your presentation can, by itself, really be considered modernization. Isn't real modernization about making the application stronger and smarter rather than just building it with different tools?

Use APIs to determine and resolve current lock holders.
Written by Bruce Vining
Last month, in "Problems Allocating an Object?," we looked at the program AllocObj. With AllocObj, we used the List Object Locks (QWCLOBJL) API to get a list of all jobs holding a lock on a given object and then displayed the name of the first job (that wasn't the current job) in that list. This month's "API Corner" will expand the capabilities of AllocObj. The updated AllocObj will, if run in an interactive job, build a subfile listing those jobs with locks on the object. From this list, the user can decide to contact someone about one or more of these jobs, end one of more of these jobs, and/or cancel the current running of AllocObj. If the current job is not interactive, then (at least for this month) AllocObj will run as it did in last month's article. Next month, we'll look at some of the batch opportunities for enhancements to AllocObj.

As the IBM i platform closes in on its silver anniversary, there are more than a few operators with ties tracing back to the very beginning. As any one of them can tell you, their roles have likely undergone more changes than the technology itself in that time.
In this Webinar, based on her just-released e-book on Security Administration, Carol Woodbury, the authority in IBM i Security, discusses the tasks every IBM i Security Administrator should perform. From system values to managing user profiles, administering authorities and handling IFS security issues, Carol provides guidance for automating tasks as well as tips for simplifying them.
