I assume the version you are using is A7.3 cume 13. If that is the case, you may have hard-cover binders of documentation somewhere. If you don't, you can get the PDF from the Oracle site, assuming you have support.

The documents you would want to look at are "Technical Foundations" and "Advanced Programming Concepts and Skills". These won't teach you RPG, but will show how a JDE RPG program is structured.

*Most* of the source for JDE (World) is provided and is in RPG [and CL]. They hold back some source code. (Assuming you have the product to begin with).

But it's one thing to learn RPG; another to learn how JDE works.

I believe you have to get this from J D Edwards, which is now owned by
Oracle, right? This is not something that is free. As far as I know, JDE
uses its own programming language, but I could be wrong there.

If you are asking for the code behind any commercial product - well, you
MIGHT have access to it, if your company has bought the source code.

I hope that is not what you are asking, however. :) Because you
probably won't get much satisfaction.

Dear Fellows;

I am really a beginner in such issues.

I would like to learn the background (source codes) of the programs running
on our ERP system JDE Edwards Worlds A.13 running on AS/400 database

Can you please advise or provide mw free resources , documentations,
tutorials (especially with real cases) so that I can be informed about the
programming in RPG , AS 400 ?

My aim is to be able to understand the algoritms of the programs running at
behind and maybe one day to be proficient to make some developments on them.

Your kind helps would be highly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
