Joe Pluta - WDSC Basics, Volume 1 WDSC isn't just a replacement to SEU; it charts a new path for development based on IBM's open-source Eclipse IDE. More than just an editor, WDSC is also a design studio, a compiler, an integration aid, and a test platform. It supports not only standard languages such as RPG and COBOL, but also Java, HTML, JavaServer Pages, and Cascading Style Sheets. The sheer scope of features available in WDSC makes learning it overwhelming for many programmers.

Joe Pluta - WDSC Basics, Volume 5 Up until this point, you've configured your workbench, connected to the host, opened source, and set up your environment. Now, we're getting near the end of the basics, and it's time to actually start doing the things that we do as programmers. In this fifth installment, you'll learn how to compile a program and how to check for errors. You'll see how the compile process affects your environment and how you can check your results.

Shannon O'Donnell - TechTips Traditionally, PTFs were ordered either by calling IBM on the phone or by using the green-screen command Send PTF Order (SNDPTFORD). Since IBM is rapidly integrating all former green-screen/command-line functionality into the iSeries Navigator utility, it was only a matter of time before they allowed you to order PTFs directly from iSeries Navigator. You can now download an iPTF plug-in for iSeries Navigator from IBM and install it into your iSeries Navigator GUI. The steps involved, while by no means rocket science, are a bit involved. If you have never installed an iSeries Navigator plug-in before, it can be difficult to figure out where to begin. To take some of the sting out of the process, industry expert Shannon O'Donnell shows you step by step in this video tutorial how to install the iPTF plug-in for iSeries Navigator.

Shannon O'Donnell - TechTips Just as no one except the security officer needs a user profile with *ALLOBJ authority, not everyone needs to have access to all commands available to them via FTP. After all, when was the last time you had the need to run CL commands on the iSeries via FTP? Do your users need the ability to send and receive in FTP, even though all they ever do is download files from your server? Do you really want people to be able to list the contents of your iSeries directories via FTP? The easiest way to control who can do what via FTP is by taking advantage of the ability of Operations Navigator to lock down FTP. In this video tutorial, industry expert Shannon O'Donnell shows you step by step how you can use Operations Navigator to secure FTP for both the individual and the entire system.

Joe Pluta - WDSC Basics, Volume 4 In previous tutorials, I showed you how to configure your workbench and connect to your host and, most recently, how to open a source member for editing. Programming is more than just editing source, though. In this fourth tutorial, I'll show you how to manage your environment, including creating a library and copying a source file, all from within WDSC. I'll even show off the versatility of WDSC by giving you a couple of alternate ways to do the same things.

This third tutorial will then leap you directly into your source code so that in just three quick steps, you will be editing your programs in WDSC! You'll learn how to use one of the System i programmer's favorite tools: the Open Member dialog, which you can use to open any source member on the System i by just typing in the library, source file, and member names. You'll also learn how to access this powerful feature with a simple key press.
