I really like the IBMi Development Pack for Visual Studio Code. I apparently need to set up a couple of things to stop the source code dates from being zeroed out when the source member is saved to the IBMi.
Source code dates are considered important in our shop. If I can't get things working well enough with the source code dates, then I have to stay with RDi. :(
The COBOL extension by BitLang, which is bundled in the IBMi Development Pack, now includes the following source member file name extensions: *.cbl, *.cblle, *sqlcblle, and *cblcpy.
The owner (spgennard) was very responsive when I made this request.
If you want syntax highlighting for SQL source code (e.g., DB2 for i SQL stored procedures), then the PL/SQL extension by Casian Ruset works relatively well for syntax highlighting. PL/SQL is Oracle's implementation of the SQL/PSM standard. SQL PL is IBM's implementation of the SQL/PSM standard. These two implementations are not the same. But the syntaxes are close enough that the syntax highlighting works fairly well for SQL PL.

Those of you who are still stuck with SEU due the price of RDi might be interested in seeing what Liam's IBM i extension can do for you. Cos you _really_ need to put SEU in your past!
