f they want to charge for the tools I'll just stay on V6 until it peters
out and then transition to java in eclipse - BTW, a nice alternative to WDSC for Java development is MyEclipseIDE.com ($30/year/developer - easy to justify). That is what I use for all of my Java development because updates happen very frequently (or rather, they are always there when I want to update the base install of Eclipse). The reason I use this is because Tomcat is supported quite well. With WDSC I have yet to successfully setup Tomcat for incremental deployment.

The price tag for the compilers and software subscription is enough to induce heart failure in any developer on any other machine in the world. It kind of ticks me off to hear wdsci and code described as *free* when I see the size of the checks going to IBM. I don't know about the rest of you but I Feel that I HAVE PAID ENOUGH. IBM can do what they will - if they want to charge for the tools I'll just stay on V6 until it peters out and then transition to java in eclipse - maybe on another platform. (I'm ticked) </rant> Regards, Rick DuVall -- This is the Websphere Development Studio Client for iSeries (WDSCI-L) mailing list To post a message email: WDSCI-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/wdsci-l or email: WDSCI-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/wdsci-l.
