You can read a lot more about EDT on the EDT site.
As to getting started <author plug> you can get my book </author plug>.

Another informative and well written article as usual, Joe. You know that I tend to promote products and architectures that run under the native virtual machine vs. those that run under a JVM, but it is nice to see additional interest in EGL since IBM committed to an open-source initiative. And I'm very glad to have you there to point out the integration points with native IBM i services, including RPG program calls. I think we are beginning to see a turning point for EGL as more people will undoubtedly download EDT and try it.

Rational Open Access for RPG generated a lot of interest when it was first announced, but it stumbled over IBM's licensing and deployment model. That appears to be fixed now, and I think it still has a lot of potential.

I'll be interested in your follow-up articles and especially interested if you are able to share more information about EGL and RPG integration.

Thanks for your good work.
