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When quoting messages, do not quote the entire message.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

Mark Occurrences button missing

I've used this feature and it really can be a great aid. Today I have a 
excellent example of a situation where it would help, but the button is 
missing on my toolbar. I'm sure it's because I've customized the toolbar 
in my perspective to eliminate a lot of irrelevant stuff, but I 
accidentally eliminated the highlighter. Switching back to the standard 
Remote Systems Explorer perspective does bring it back, but I really would 
like to add it back to my custom perspective. 

Can anyone direct me to what would be necessary to show it? I've not had a 
great experience with the 'Customize Perspective' option showing me what 
is and isn't really active.

Thanks

Re: Download RDi


For everyone that is struggling with downloading our trial, I sincerely
apologize.

We will see what we can do to get this resolved.

For me the Download Director approach seems to be working (goes to this
link and gets downloading).

https://www-01.ibm.com/marketing/iwm/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=RATLe-DEVSYSI-EVAL
If you are having trouble with being asked for BlueMix trials you can try
this link instead.

The web install method does not work - this is a known issue that is being
worked on -
(you can use Eric's link to work around that
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21667734)

For those who were having trouble with being redirected to BlueMix was this
happening when you were creating a new IBM ID, or using an existing one (I
can't seem to reproduce the problem while using my existing IBM ID)

Snippets

I have several snippets that I use for nearly every program that I write and have just learned to live with the
alignment issues in P and D specs in subprocedures that arise when using variables and placeholders.
However, I just created a snippet that is completely free-form calc specs (by pasting in code from an
existing program), created two variables, and inserted the placeholders into the code. When I insert the
snippet into my program, the first line is positioned at the cursor and all of the following lines are
adjusted all the way to the left, which of course generates a bunch of pink error messages and forces me to
block that section of the code and adjust it to the proper position. I tried to paste the block of code into
the snippet using ALT/R to mark the block and ALT/Z to paste
  it into the snippet, but ALT/Z is not recognized there. The only way I have found so far to remedy this is to add
a bunch of spaces to the front of lines 2-5 in the snippet (so the if/endif
  statements don't line up in the snippet). Does anyone else have a better solution? There has been a lot of
discussion about pasting into the editor but shouldn't snippet insert with correct alignment?

WDSCi (RAD7) et Windows 7

Paul,

We use to run WDSC v7 on our Windows 7 PC's.  The connection to the System
i would fail until we did the following:

Right-click on the WDSC shortcut and select "Properties".  

Select the "Compatibility" tab,  

Check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box, select
"Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)" from the drop-down box, and then click on
the OK button.

Hope this works for you.

Recently we purchased licenses for RDi v9.1.  We wanted all the new
features that have been added since WDSC v7.  In particular, the syntax
highlighting for all the new free-format specifications that have been
added.  Once learned, the productivity gains are well worth the cost.

RFE Vote time - compile-time expression in data typing

I entered a PMR, but am told my issue is as-designed so an RFE is needed to change how it works.

Here is the problem.  In the example below, blahVarying shows up in the outline as Unknown(0).  I supplied
'blah' as its own definition, but it could come from a file, copybook, or wherever.
dcl-s blah char( 10 );
dcl-s blahVarying varChar( %len( blah ) );

Re: WDSCi (RAD7) et Windows 7

When I last ran WDSCi, it was on Windows 7. To get it to work correctly, I 
had to install a patch of version 7.0.0.8. 
Instructions to install it are in the wiki at: 
http://wiki.midrange.com/index.php/WDSC_installation_on_Windows_7

The last I checked , the download links from that page still work.

ISO: WDSC 7.0 install media (yes, really)

Folks:

I need to find a copy of the WDSC 7.0 install media for some testing.  I'm sure we have a copy of it here, but I
can't find it.

Does anyone have a copy the media I could borrow?

Please contact me offlist if you do.

Thanks!
