Re: Source Compare/Merge added to RSE Extensions



fixed

I'm having trouble finding the right search terms for the archive search. 
I can't find it using Google either.  I know that the problem of losing 
syntax highlighting has come up in the past, but I can't find the articles 
in the archives.

Anyone got  a link to the solution handy?

Now, what is it they always say about replying to yourself .... :P

I don't know if anyone else has tried installing these yet, but after 
installing the updates (using automatic updates feature), I lost syntax 
highlighting in LPEX for RPG source.  I will hunt down the solution in 
the 
archives.

The RSE Extensions have been updated to version 6.1.0.  This new 
version 

brings three new features to the RSE Extensions:

1.  Graphical Source Compare/Merge.  Basically works like PDM options 
54/55.  Select your development source member, right-click and choose 
RSE 
Extensions -> Compare or Merge.  This brings up a dialog to specify 
the 
additional member(s) and then shows the results using the Eclipse 
graphical compare/merge engine.  In order to work properly on iSeries 
source code the first 12 bytes, the sequence number and date, have to 
be 

stripped from the local member.  So when you save source from this 
editor 
those bytes are reset to default values.

2.  Edit Data Area.  Right-click on a *DTAARA object and choose RSE 
Extensions -> Change Data Area and you get a dialog that shows the 
attributes and current value of the *DTAARA.  You can edit the value 
and 

update the contents of the *DTAARA using the dialog.

3.  Display Data Queue.  You get the idea.  Right click on a *DTAQ and 

choose RSE Extensions -> Display Data Queue.  This brings up a dialog 
that 
shows the attributes of the *DTAQ as well as the contents of the first 

item in the queue based on the sequence.

There is a bit more detail on the RSE Extensions Overview page:

http://support.softlanding.com/opensource/site/overview.html

If you already have the extensions installed, checking for updates 
from 
within WDSC should find this new version and install it.  Otherwise, 
to 
do 
a first time install or to view more information just visit this page:

http://www.softlanding.com/websphere/rse.htm

WDSC Lite users, I am not exactly sure what you do.  I believe you are 

technically supposed to apply updates to your main version of WDSC and 

then re-run the process of creating the Lite version.  You might also 
just 
be able to copy the plug-in folder for the new version to the WDSC 
Lite 
folder.

Finally, just as a reminder, the RSE Extensions are available for free 

under an open source license, the IBM CPL.  It would be great if some 
of 

you in the community wanted to hone your Java skills by contributing 
to 
the project.  The new dialogs for *DTAARA and *DTAQ would be fairly 
easy 

to extend to other object types and would be a good learner project 
for 
someone that wanted to contribute new extensions.

Thanks

Mark
