I'm signed up for the webinar and you've peaked my interest.

You know one thing that would be cool?

If RPG database RLA was more like SQL in that data from a file was
retrieved based on field *name* at run time and not on field *position* at
compile time.

The only fields retrieved at run time would obviously be the ones that
existed at compile time, but it would really make it easier to make
database changes.

Yea, everything could be rewritten to SQL access but that's not really in
the cards for thousands of existing programs with millions of lines of code.

Just dreaming out loud on a Friday . . .

Larry and I have been in Rochester the last 3 days learning about all the
new stuff (IBM I 7.2 & POWER8) coming out next week, and there is going to
be some very exciting stuff announced on Monday morning. You will want to
check out many of the announcement presentations, developer works, and
blogs on Monday and this is going to blow you away, and make people who
aren't on IBM i jealous (envious).
