Course Objectives

During this course, delegates are introduced to Websphere Development Studio Client (WDSC) (or Rational Developer for i) and the Cooperative Development Environment (CODE) - the GUI replacements for the Programmer Development Manager (PDM). For application developers, these tools provide a completely new development environment and one which allows for faster (and easier) application development and maintenance.

After completing this course delegates will be able to:

  • Take advantage of the productivity gains made possible by using the new functions in the WDSC/RDi and CODE GUI environments.
  • Off-load development work to the PC environment and work disconnected from the i system (System i , i5, iSeries and AS/400).
  • Use WDSC/RDi and CODE for both legacy and leading edge languages.
