Eclipse provides many pre-configured IDEs, and PDT is perfect for managing Linux.

This is the second in an ongoing series of articles meant to help you create a virtual Linux environment right on your desktop or laptop. As I noted in the first article in the series, I built this series on a set of fantastic video tutorials by Catherine Gaughan-Smith (aka CGS), which can all be found here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4. This article, though, is a complete departure from that curriculum. CGS uses ssh from her Mac desktop to access the virtual machine, but I’m going to show you how to use Eclipse—and more specifically, the Eclipse PHP Development Tools (PDT)—to access your shiny new virtual machine.

Welcome to the fifth installment of the popular IBM i Marketplace Survey Results. Each year, HelpSystems sets out to gather data about how businesses use the IBM i platform and the IT initiatives it supports. In fact, the survey is now revealing long-term trends that give insight into the future of this trusted technology.
Past surveys have sparked many thoughtful conversations about IBM i, and we’re thrilled to be part of such an engaged community. 2018 was a big year for the platform, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in June with fond memories from longtime users and a look toward what’s next, along with the launch of POWER9.
More than 750 people from around the globe participated in this year’s survey, and we’re so happy to share the results with you. We hope you’ll find the information interesting and useful as you evaluate your own IT projects.
