Rdi 7.1 was unbundled from the compilers, priced separately, and went
under it's own maintenance. Like David said, Rational Developer for Power
Systems Software (sometimes called RDP, RDp, or RDPi) is a no charge
upgrade unless you want the AIX tooling.

This repackaging of the development tools happened at V6R1 of i5/OS--which
has since been renamed IBM i 6.1.

Re: [WDSCI-L] RDp vs RDi

I thought the pricing structure changed at RDp, or maybe it was RDi 7.5
Anyway, it was my understanding that there is a purchase price and a
separate maintenance fee to pay for upgrades. I don't think RDp is
included in the price of the compilers anymore.

Is there an additional charge to upgrade to the RDp product?

I'm pretty sure there is not additional charge (unless you want to use
AIX tooling).

You do, however, have to get a new license key. I think you get the RDP
key from same place you got previous keys.
