It's not so bad now with PASE and open source.

I spent many years in VT100 etc. terminal sessions to Unix.

In that enviroment, *Midnight Commander* saved my sanity. Learn to use that
funny old tool, still being maintained, with recent changes for PASE added
to the source tree.

yum install mc
yum install vim

On your workstation download and install *jEdit* and/or *Atom*. Both have
popular optional plugins that support remote editing via SFTP, encrypted,
secure.

yum install git

We now keep our code in a remote repository.

I've spent many entire days this year editing and compiling on PASE this
way. For the PASE languages like Python and Java I just run stuff there.
RPG and CL I run the compiles from a separate green screen, though you can
write make files or shell scripts in PASE which run your compiles via
PASE's system command.

At this point, I use green screen for admin, but development happens in
entirely in PASE.

In my experience, trying to edit Java directly on the i is an exercise in
