RPG! It's Alive with New Treasures
“New” RPG Free Form enhancements? Well sure, but that happened at 7.1. Time marches on and so do the enhancements. Today’s RPG is living, vibrant and ever-evolving, keeping pace and meeting the requirements and needs of TODAY’S programming community.
If you haven’t been keeping up you are missing out on the many new treasures that will not only improved the readability of your code but also the reliability. Long live RPG!
Putting the Pedal to the Metal for RDi
Need a crash course on seeing if RDi is right for you (hint – it is) but can’t commit an entire day on a workshop? In this session we will cover the key points of Eclipse navigation, source code editing, program debugging and graphical screen and report design. Even after only one session you will see how a modern workbench is where you need to be using to stay in the game of application development.
The less frequent RDi FAQs - More stuff to know!
RDi is a game changer and continues to improve how developers are maintaining and developing their applications everywhere. And with the breadth of functionality there is almost never enough time to answer all of the questions at our sessions. Here we will go through some of the most challenging and obscure questions and provide live demonstration to answer them. Let’s learn together how RDi can further your productivity in ways you never thought possible.
XML and JSON REST Web Services for Everyday RPG and SQL Consumption
A web service extends your applications in a way that no traditional programming can. They allow you to get real time information for almost any requirement. We’ll discuss what web services are, how they function and how you can begin using them on your own system. Get step-by-step instructions on the entire Web service process from receiving an XML or JSON document to successfully parsing its information to a display or database file.
See working RPG code of an XML parsing program and watch how we consume a RESTful web service. Updates include i7.1 SQL enhancements which make consuming web services a snap. This session includes source code to get started using dynamic Web services today!
