I checked my last configurator.
We still have/own a 1 site license of 5733- RDI - Rational Developer for System i V7.1 @ 795.00
Also listed 5733-RDP, 5661-RDI, 5661-RDP
Not sure what all these product/features are.

Some issues we had with RDI.
RDI runs on PC, correct, upgraded PC to Windows 7, RDI broke, needed newer version of RDI.
Business partner could not order newer version of RDI, had to go through another BP, big mess, wasn't work the hassle.
Because we use CA2E, which generates our source on the I, RDI not a good match.
The IBM sites do not list the product/feature numbers, difficult to determine what is needed.

A few more questions.
There are 3 versions of RDI, which one?
Does anything get installed on the I for RDI?
Is RDI related to any of these currently installed V7R1 products?
5770WDS V7R1M0 5050 IBM Rational Development Studio for i
5770WDS V7R1M0 5103 Application Development ToolSet
Is Websphere (or whatever it is now called) needed? Some info suggested it might be.
If enough carpenters squawked, and wanted their old hammer fixed/upgraded, do you think IBM may reconsider?
I don't mean to be negative, but IBM does not make it easy to buy, support, maintain, RDI, BP was of no assistance, but we must buy through BP.

Here is something not quite clear to me. Who "owns" the license? I am not talking about who writes the check.

Lets say ABC Company buys a license for John Smith, and John Smith loads RDi on to his workstation at the office and at home. Apparently it is OK if he uses either one, so long as he is using only one at a time. But
now lets suppose John Smith connects to a box owned by XYZ Company?
Is that OK?
