Moving from SEU/PDM to Rational Developer for i?

This month we presented at the annual IBM Innovate Conference in Orlando several topics on the various IBM Rational tools. Rational Developer for i (RDi) is the IDE of choice for editing, verifying, analyzing, and managing RPG, COBOL, and C/C++ on the IBM i (i.e the AS/400). If you come from a SEU/PDM development environment and are looking to move to a more robust IDE, or if you wish to use the new RPG language features, you need to read through this to learn how to adopt the product. In this presentation we cover the new features of RDi 9.1, including the new debugger and code coverage tooling. We also demonstrated editing features of the LPEX editor, such as find/replace with regular expressions. We covered the screen and report designers as well.
