I hear ya!
Just thought it would be good to have a File-Association thing for iProject to work with less Aggravation. Sort of like the third party software Softlanding/Turnover does.
Because as we all already know, RPGLE source can be created into different object types:
*PGM, *MODULE, *SRVPGM
It only makes sense that it should be more automated somehow, as others have suggested too.
Speaking of which, using iProject this morning. And went to compile and got the Milky White screen of Death... <disappointment>
I attached the following to open my PRM# 43110 442 000:
1.) Screen shot of Java Error (Java was started but returned exit code=-805306369) on closing RDI, due to lock up.
2.) Attached export Error-Log from RDI 22.214.171.124
3.) Zipped up my entire workspace, which was just created on April 18th
And sent it off to IBM for investigation. As typical, cannot repeat the scenario. Aggravating to lock up for no apparent reason...
After all, a restart fixes all...
Oh yeah, every so often my Dot-Net co-workers have to re-install Visual Studio due to "corruption", so it is NOT perfect either... It make the load of under 10-20 minutes for RDI 126.96.36.199 compared to the load time of 1.5 hours visual Studio look AWESOME! Of course it is sort of Apple & Oranges...
My PC specs:
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4810MQ CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2801 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB. I asked for 16 gig, but they only gave 8-gig... :(

They basically deal with the source and build the project. Which is the point of "Projects. Work with source and build the objects...
Like most languages, there will still be a make file of some sort underlying the UI to do the compiling and linking, probably VS does a better job at hiding it. But it's also not really a fair comparison as they're usually (always?) building a single type of source file so there's not much the make file has to do. A typical RDi project will have programs, modules, service programs, SQL, CL et.c etc. and they have to be built in the right order of course (which is hard, if not impossible, to derive automatically).
Tim, folks using Visual Studio can and very often do have projects that are just as multifaceted as those using RDi. The ILE model of programs, modules, and service programs has been around in equivalent forms for ages on various platforms. It's more seamless in VS than in RDi not because the programming model is inherently simpler for VS users, it's because Microsoft (and other toolmakers for the mainstream
platforms) have a lot more experience and a lot more resources to devote to developing tools.
