RE: how to save RPGLE code



fixed

Maybe it's an indication of people using the IDE differently?

In 8.5 I suffered from memory leak bugs, crashing of the IDE, and Content Assist (my precioussss) suddenly disappearing (an Eclipse bug to be fair to Rational). All of these nightmares were resolved which is where I'm coming from in saying 9.0.1 is more stable.

My free trial expired and I'm back on 8.5 until we get our entitled license (long story, was waiting to be set up on PPO which I thought would happen before the trial ran out, but I was wrong).

Scott, I was thinking that you were a PDM holdout for some reason. Or maybe you simply disputed the claims of boosted productivity in the past? Or I'm simply way off mark.

Jon, for 9.0 I started with a fresh workspace as well.

I've found 9.0 and 8.5 to be pretty much identical in terms of bugs and stability. (And, for the most part, in terms of features, as well.)

I have the exact same problems with 9.0 that I had with 8.5, and have not yet seen anything new... so it's pretty much "same old, same old" to me.

Funny you should say that Kurt - V9 has been anything but stable for us and the client sites where we have used it. It seems more stable when using a workspace converted from 8.5 than it does with a new one - but that may be coincidence. For us 8.5 was a lot more stable.

Booth, you need to work on your sales pitch. Eliminate the word buggy. ;) Seriously though, I'm responding because v9.0.1 is a fairly solid release in my eyes, at least compared to the serious drawbacks of 8.0 and 8.5. Checking it out is a good recommendation.

One response I haven't seen is this:

You are in a PDM shop; maybe this is the time to dip your toes in the water? Download a trial copy of RDi and take it for a buggy ride. You have 60 days to see where the wind blows you

For years now I've been using Projects in WDSC/RDP/RDi for this purpose.

Create a project, select the remote sources you want to include, push the button. Done.

Can edit them on the workstation, use any edit tool you like, push them back to IBM i later - same system or a different one - and on and on.
