You don't have a choice for replacing SEU - RDi is it.

Having said that, there is an ADTS trade-in program that brought the per-seat cost down around 600 bucks - it is easiest to use this program by going through your BP. Ask them about it - product code 5733-RDG might be the thing.

If you look at WRKLICINF for ADTS, you will likely see a bunch of seats now, this was changed at 6.1. You'll still have lots of ADTS seats for those who need PDM, etc. We had 25 on our LPARs.

Prices vary for different editions of RDi - the price displayed on their site is for a single-year license - it will end up being more expensive in like 2 years.

You also PROBABLY don't want the floating license.

There ARE productivity gains with these tools, AND SEU is no longer being updated.

Good luck

1) What is RSE (Remote System Explorer)?

As the programmers use more of the new features, the SEU syntax checking frozen at 6.1 is becoming a bigger issue.
Again, looking for SEU replacement options.
RDI was tabled due to cost justification.
