Rational Developer for i (RDi) has many powerful views, and the view you choose depends on how you use the tool.
Rational Developer for i (RDi), IBM's integrated development environment (IDE) for the IBM i, provides advanced development capabilities that easily surpass those we grew up with in the green-screen days of SEU and SDA. Yes, I can still write code using those tools, but RDi makes it so much easier. To me, just having color-coded source with more than 80 characters and 24 lines is enough to move off the green-screen. Unfortunately, the shift from green-screen to graphical can be jarring. And to their credit, IBM continues to make the RDi experience as familiar and comfortable as possible, and the Object Table View is one of the ways they've done that.
