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When quoting messages, do not quote the entire message.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.

Re: iSphere - compare/merge editor

Frank,
I would also like to add my $.02 to this regarding the column range on
compare.
Our standard is to use columns 1 - 5 for a change id, and it would be nice
to be able to compare the source based on just the actual code line only.

Re: iSphere and RSE Extensions

I'm wondering if the perceived lack of support is because the RSE 
Extensions are pretty mature - they've worked well for many years now, 
as Frank says.

I know that Doug Davie, who works at SoftLanding, has responded in these 
lists whenever there is a new release of RD-whatever - I got the plugins 
installed from his instructions posted here.

BTW, we are a customer of their's, just so you know. I got curious and 
looked at their site - there's a request form for a web demo or 
questions or whatever that includes the Extensions in the product list. 
And phone numbers - so anyone who has an idea for an enhancement to the 
extensions can certainly contact them.

Of course, these plugins are free - but I know that I expect a level of 
support, so long as they don't say otherwise on the site. And that I can 
direct my thoughts their way.

Regards
Vern

there is no further support neither for bugs nor for enhancements for what reasons ever. In general I don`t
like to fork other open source projects but in case of the Messages Subsystem of the RSE Extensions Plugin
we have a well working feature that deserves it to be maintained and it makes no sense to develop this from
scratch again. Therefore I will adopt the Messages Subsystem of the RSE Extensions Plugin to make it a part
of iSphere. First step will be to adopt the Messages Subsystem as it is. Later we can implement new features

Re: iSphere and RSE Extensions

Hi Frank,

I too use the messages subsystem and again it is the only part of the softlanding extensions that I still use.
Everything else that isn't core product I do with your plugin so would certainly appreciate this being included.

Best regards,
Mark

If there are enough people out there who are using the Messages Subsystem of the RSE Extension Plugin and we
decide to adopt this to iSphere then of course we can enrich the Messages Subsystem with new features like
clearing a message queue.

Re: Workspace unreachable

Jon,

Try in Preferences under General, Startup and Shutdown, then Workspaces. 
On the right, there's a checkbox 'Prompt for workspace on startup'.

Re: iSphere and RSE Extensions

Way back when, I asked softlanding about it and they said it was a
technical limitation as the monitoring thread had a lock on the queue and
thus the display (or the Remote System Explorer ) thread couldn't clear it.

But it would seem to me that the display thread could send a message to the
monitoring thread and tell it to clear it.  But then again, I have no
experience with the details of eclipse.

Re: iSphere and RSE Extensions

I'm still a green message user, but one of my coworkers got excited when he
saw iSphere said something about messages.  He was hoping to view messages
about batch jobs completing, so he would appreciate this, if I understand
what you're suggesting.  This isn't useful for compiles, because there is
an adequate event file system to report compile errors, but he is
interested when we run a promotion in our change management software (MKS
Implementer).  To track the results of this promotion, you need to review
messages to make sure everything went as planned.

Re: iSphere and RSE Extensions

I use it...in fact, that's pretty much the only thing I use the softlanding
plugin for.

Specifically, I use the message queue monitoring so I get pop-up messages
when batch jobs complete.

If you add it, I hope you can figure out how to have your message subsystem
be able to clear a message queue with the monitoring turned on.  RSE can't.

Selections made with ALT-L disappear

I frequently use ALT-L to select lines from one member to paste into another open member. Occasionally
after making my selection and clicking on the tab for the member I want to paste into, when I click on ALT-C
nothing gets pasted in. When I go back to the original member that I was copying from, the lines I selected
are no longer selected. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not sure what circumstances cause this so I
don't know how to reproduce it or whether I should report it.

Workspace unreachable

Got a situation where the “Don’t show this …” option was selected for the workspace.  

Problem is that the workspace is on a network drive that cannot be connected and there’s no option to try a
new one.

Only instructions I have found involve changing windows registry - but they are for WDSC !  Not seeing
anything more recent and I hate messing with registry - anyone know if there is a better way?
