As far as 1 & 2..
2) Yes, since RDi is built on Eclipse
But RDi is available in three packages...
RPG and COBOL Tools
RPG and COBOL + Modernization Tools, Java Edition
RPG and COBOL + Modernization Tools, EGL Edition
Most i shops would have the first one. Which works ok for basic Java
(even Java EE) development given eclipses built in Java development support.
The Java edition of RDi includes:
- IBM Worklight Studio V6.0 to add support for developing hybrid
- Also includes a significant subset of Rational Application Developer
for WebSphere, and it includes IBM Data Studio, all in addition to
extensive support for compiled languages development on IBM i. As such,
this edition now provides a complete solution for developing multitier,
multichannel applications that integrate with back-end systems implemented
in IBM i systems
Rational Application Developer (RAD) for WebSphere is IBM's full featured
Java development IDE.
You can probably get your feet wet with the base RDi.

We are coding our first Java app.
1) What coding tool do most use?
2) Can RDI be used, if so which version/flavor?
3) Where does one store their Java source?
4) Any special tools used for Java deployment?
We currently do not use any cm package.
