  • RSE Trials (and Tribulations?)

    In our latest EXTRA article we wrote about our favorite tool for developing RPG/COBOL/CL/DDS code--RSE, which is currently packaged in RDi, previously in RDP and WDSC. We've heard of some issues users have had related to downloading the trial and then turning the trial into a licensed program. So we thought we'd point you to a few hints and tips that we've found on both of those processes.

    Modernize? Schmodernize!

    What with our involvement in the upcoming IBM Modernization Redbooks publication, we've been paying even more attention than usual to the topic of application modernization.

    In a blog post a few weeks ago we mentioned that we had the opportunity to test the beta version of the new RDi support for fully free-form RPG and were impressed by it. We had originally thought it would be well into 2014 before this new support became publicly available, but apparently Santa--in the guise of IBM Rational--has delivered support for the new free format H, F and D specs now.
