Unpack the .zip files and point the repository to the first disk.
Here's my WDSC repository:

W:\wdsci_7.0\disk1\diskTag.inf

Network Install of RDi??

Does anyone have a cheat sheet for downloading the install files and installing from there?  I've found
some info but haven't had any luck.

Downloaded the zips, and setup a path in the repository in Installation manager but that did not seem to work.

I have to install a few more copies and would love to save some time - it's a pretty slow install right now.

Thanks.

Guidelines for WDSCI-L mailing list

Monthly posting of the guidelines for participation in the Websphere
Development Studio Client and Rational Developer for i mailing list.

Keep to the subject.  The topic of the list is IBM's Rational Developer
for Power Systems, Rational Developer for i, and Websphere Development
Studio Client.  This includes all aspects of RDp / RDi / WDSCi. 
Including, but not limited to: RSE, LPEX, Compiling, Verification,
and CODE/400.

NOTE: EGL, Java, and Web development topics are better served in 
the lists specific to those topics.

Limited discussion of third party plug-in's is also allowed.  It is, 
however, recommend that questions about third party (non-IBM), non-open
source, plug-in's be directed to the vendor's technical support group.

Please be aware ... a number of IBM employees monitor this mailing list
and will offer help when possible.  Please keep in mind that the IBM'ers
participate in this list on their spare time and so may not be able to
respond promptly if at all.

When starting a new discussion thread, *PLEASE* try to avoid replying to
an existing message to get the correct email address.  When you reply to
an existing message, most email clients and the list archiving software
think that the new thread is part of the old thread, and will display it
as such.

When quoting messages, do not quote the entire message.  Just quote the
parts that are needed to make the appropriate references.

RPG Compiler (and RDi Syntax Checker) weirdness

Cross posted in RPG and WDSC lists because it applies to both. Just for reference, IBM i 7.1 TR?, RDi 9.1.1.1.

So just by accident, due to fat fingers, I discovered that the following RPG code does not generate an error:

         handle = ls_init(LSOA_COPY + + LSOA_BLOCK + LSOA_REPEAT);

Note the two + operators separated only by a space. What does that compile to? It is obvious to me that an
operand is missing, but
the compiler happily creates something and goes on it's merry way. The LPEX source checker thinks it is ok as well!

i Projects - SystemMessageException: File QRPGLESRC in library QSYS not found

Hi,

After having updated RDi to 9.1.1.1, I get the following error for /copy members that references QRPGLESRC:

org.eclipse.rse.services.clientserver.messages.SystemMessageException: Datei QRPGLESRC in

Does someone else have the same problem?

      /copy qhmac,iconv_h

      /copy qrpglesrc,httpapi_h
      /copy qrpglesrc,yajl_h

Re: Repository name for Data Studio

As I stated earlier, I cannot download behind the firewall, but for some reason Installation manager is
able to function. So any download is out for me.

I added the repository to IM using File->Properties. Then selected Install. The wizard walked me through
the install, and added Data Studio to RDi 9.1 as expected. I didn't really need to do anything except answer prompts.

Jon and Mark,
I used the web download method described by Eric.  It did indeed
download another Installation Manager.  When asked, I told this new IM
to install Data Studio in the same package group as RDi.

When I start (the original?) IM, I have the following repositories:

Tangible benefits of upgrading RDi from 9.0.1 to 9.1.1

All,
Disclaimer: I am just a "Indian" here and have no direct voice in policy.

Given that most of the clients I work on are at release 6.1, and a strict
policy at my company is that free form is marginally acceptable (sub
procedures are barely tolerated) and the new full free form is not
permitted at all, what benefits are there in upgrading my version of RDi.

Since we have a site licence and are an IBM Business Partner, I have been
told that there is no additional charge for the licence key, but the CIO is
always "too busy" to fill out and submit the "paper work" needed to get the
new licence key.

If I could present a list of actual benefits, perhaps that would help.
There are only about 5 programmers out of about 50+ here that actually use
RDi.  The rest just use SEU/SDA, even though those of us who are using RDi
have touted its benefits to management.

Repository name for Data Studio

Can anyone tell me the repository name for Data Studio 4.1.1? Even though I can't download things, I can use
Installation Manager to install from the web. If I can just get the repository name somewhere I can install
Data Studio. I have installation Manager 1.8.2, and was able to upgrade RDi. Every thing I can find wants me
to download the whole package. Even the online install wants me to download Installation Manager again. I
just want the repository name to plug into my existing Installation Manager.
