Following on from Michael's post, here's a hypothetical question.

If IBM Rational was to deliver a "lite" version of RDi that was affordable, (say, <150USD - or free!), what features should it include - and what could you do without?

Here are some thoughts:

MUST HAVES
- Remote Systems view and attendant features
- Fully-functioning LPEX Editor
- Debug (esp. SEP support0
- Compile support and Error List view
- Fully-functioning Outline View

COULD DO WITHOUT
- iProjects
- Screen and Print Designer
- Object Table Views
- Code Coverage, (probably impossible to untangle from Debug)
- Data Studio
- Program Verify
- Application Diagram
- Source member conversion
- Coding Templates
- Coding Wizards
- 5250 emulator
- Push to client/server

Brian.
