Its been a long time since I posted on any of these lists, as I have been distracted with lots of boring .net stuff.
However we have finally moved from V5R4 to 7.1, that combined with the possibility of a couple of trainees starting has turned my attention back to all things IBM.
I'm looking to use a combination of qaxis HTTP API and Scott K's YAJL wrapper to put together a POC to call one of our .net RESTFUL services. If successful, I'd like to set the trainee's the task of using the technology to link into various parts of our system and actually do something useful.
I'd prefer them to learn in an IDE, as there is more chance of things sticking as they will be using Visual Studio as well, and if they are using an IDE, then it probably should be the latest available.
On to the questions
1) Are most people using RDI now?
2) Do any still sue WDSC?
3) Do any still just use SEU
With regards to RDI from what I can see the floating license is a no brainer, we have a lot of very talented and experienced developers who feel more at home in SEU, but a few people that will prefer RDI. I cant see any reason to go for the more expensive Authorised user option, does anybody have a good reason why someone might consider it.
