Phil, thanks for a few words. Any chance of us getting an RPM version of WDSc for Linux?

For system requirements, I use a 700mhz pc with 512mb of memory, and other than startup (which I only have to deal with once a day, and which gets a bit better next release) I find performance quite snappy. I admit this is no small machine, but it is a long way from what Bob Cozzi is suggesting. Memory is the most important thing, but it is the Web unit test environment that uses most of this. Perhaps it is a little easier to ask IT for more memory than it is to ask for a new PC? #2. Who is WDSC targeted at? Yes, of course anyone doing any of Java, Web, WebServices or XML development. But it is also for traditional iSeries development... and this is because of our integration of RSE with the classic CODE tools. The idea is RSE is the front door to these tools for now, while over time their functionality will be absorbed into the RSE itself. And let's not forget WebFacing! #3. Is WDSC a "collection of parts being sold as an IDE" as Buck suggests? We sure do not think so! The Java and Web and WebServices and XML and WebFacing tools are top notch tools that we have recented a lot of great feedback on. Many developers are using these very successfully. I'd like to know why you find them wanting. For RPG and COBOL, with the integration of the classic tools, we think we have offered something worthwhile, out of the gate. ...just some thoughts...
