On the page where you set up a new connection, once you've selected what type of connection to use, you're eventually asked for host, user id and pwd (amongst others).

When I set up the host here as the ip-address of my 'i', instead of one of the host names assigned to it , then I got the problem I described.

When you say the "connection name" where exactly are you specifying it?

Joe

OK I think I figured it out. That server error threw me. If I'm right, it seems that if the connection name is an ip-address, the periods are interpreted as delimiters for a directory structure, which EGL doesn't seem to like too much. I could be way off, but that's what I 'think' is happening. When I changed the name to a host name, it's peachy..

Mike and Joe,

I'm a newbie to EGL and Eclipse and also following Joe's tutorial (thanks Joe !!). I'm at the same page as Mike on fig 7.

I hooked into to a DB2 connection on my IBM-I. When I created the record, the list of files was built as expected and I was able to select what I need and get through that part unhindered. Then I tried adding a library, it created the code, but then I get a bunch of errors. The base error appear to be that I don't have a server.. Does this error indicate that I need to set it up as an http server on my IBM-i?

Ok, I'm working through the tutorial from
http://www.ibmsystemsmag.com/ibmi/developer/general/egl_developement_t
ooling

I have a couple of issues

On page 3 figure 7 I'm trying to create the library(could you give a
simple explanation of library,record, service) package server; import
common.*; // basic library library CustomerLib

// Use Declarations
//use usePartReference;

// Constant Declarations
const constantName string = "literalString";

// Variable Declarations
variableName string;

// Function Declarations
function getCustomer(custnumber decimal(7,0) in) returns(CUSMAS)
RGT SQLDataSource?{@resource {}};
CUSMAS CUSMAS{ CUSTNO = custnumber};
get CUSMAS from RGT;

return (CUSMAS);
end

end

on the 'get CUSMAS from RGT;' statement it tells me "No such method"


So I moved on, hoping I would get that cleared up and started working on the RUI Handler.
I can't tell from the images, how I add the variable CUSMAS and when I bring up the designer, I don't see a CUSMAS to drag on to the designer.

That's it for now.

Mike
