This short article is here to get you grounded in using the Apache HTTP server in its particular implementation on IBM i and give you a bit of background and wisdom on that implementation.

We’ll also look at Tomcat, which is an application server that is written in Java and runs very nicely, thank you, on IBM i. I also thought about writing a chapter on Java for IBM developers. I decided against doing that, though, because there is a solid book, Java for RPG Programmers (MC Press, 2006), which covers much of what I would say. That won’t stop me from talking about Java or even throwing you a Java example or two, but we won’t go quite as deep into Java as I have into other…
The process of setting up an application development environment is frequently overlooked because the environment used is often dictated by the company a developer works for.

Even developers who don’t work with an environment that is governed by their company may not have to do much to get started; they may only need to install their integrated development environment (IDE) of choice (such as Xcode or Visual Studio Code). But creating a new development environment from the ground up can be frustrating because not everybody’s computer is the same. Consequently, a setup tutorial for one computer—or a process used by one developer—may not work for another.
Have you been wondering about Node.js? Our free Node.js Webinar Series takes you from total beginner to creating a fully-functional IBM i Node.js business application. You can find Part 1 here.
In Part 2 of our free Node.js Webinar Series, Brian May teaches you the different tooling options available for writing code, debugging, and using Git for version control.
Brian will briefly discuss the different tools available and demonstrate his preferred setup for Node development on IBM i or any platform.
