Filter list

People,

I am just starting (2 hours ago) to use WDSCI v5.0 and would like to
know if what I am experiencing is typical.

My PC (1 gb ram, 2.1 Celeron, 10-100 network card) running XP, is
10-100mb lan-connected to an 820 iSeries with 1.5 gb of memory running
V5R2.

I created a connection to the iSeries.
This took between 6 and 8 minutes (during which time I could not tell if
anything was happening or not) ?

I then selected 'work with members' and created a filter for my RPG
sources. 
This filter was placed on the same tree level as 'work with members',
rather than as a 'drill-down' option under 'work with members'.
I could not find a way to move this filter to where I wanted it. 
i.e. 	Select 'work with members'
	This expands to	'RPG sources'
			'CL Sources'
			'DDS Sources'
			etc....

Am I missing something here, or does this tree not 'branch' ?

I have shut down normally and restarted WDSCI now several times. Restart
time is now 30-45 seconds, instead of 6-8 minutes, but why 30-45
seconds?

Tim, WDSC5.1 seems to be much faster than 5.0 was.  Perhaps you should
upgrade, since v5.1 is available.

Re: Filter list

Welcome to the Brave New World!

The 'Work with Members' does not branch - except to tell you that you were 
successful! Filters are all on the same level. Their contents can be a tree 
if the filter is for libraries or for files (objects) in a library. In a 
library filter, double-clicking a library opens it up to show the objects 
in that library. With a right-click you can open the library to only one 
kind of object. Double-clicking a file will show the members.

Because there can be a lot of stuff to wade through, the object and member 
filters are good for me to focus on one thing. They do save me time.

As for startup time, Java is a pig. Someone mentioned going to 5.1 - good idea.

Login is controlled by iSeries Access connection settings, I believe - go 
into OpsNav and see what it says there.

Search window goes away when you click in the source. There may be - I 
don't know - an option to leave it open while still working in the source. 
I'd kinda like that - Word works that way, TextPad works that way. It's a 
design choice.

Re: Filter list


Tim,

5.1 is a lot faster, especially on starting up.

On the connection dialog, there are two check boxes, you have to check them
both if you do not want to get the dialog in the future.

The Search toolbar button is doing a search of source members on your
server, like FNDSTRPDM, it is not searching the source you have open.  That
is done with Ctrl-F as you mentioned.  I seem to remember that the search
window goes away automatically if you click or do something in the source.
It stays open so you can do Find Next or another search.

Vern and Joe answered some of the others.  I will just add that Yes, I
think WDSC is ready for primetime.

Regarding v5.1

Tim:

I have to second Mark's excellent motion that you use the latest version.
Joe Pluta was typically understated when he said "perhaps you should
upgrade".  You must upgrade, in my humble opinion, if you plan to actually
use the product.

It's gotten geometrically better, and v5.1 is the first version I've found
actually useful.  I have, as I told someone in a note just a bit ago,
nothing but admiration for those who have successfully used v4.0; I found it
to be "not ready for prime time", in the worst way.

5.1, on the other hand, is definitely ready, and was absolutely worth the
wait.

RE: Could not initialize JVM

Hi,

Anyone more tips on this... I can't get any further.

Guess we'll need to reinstall the laptop :-(

Kind regards,
Paul

Not sure about specifics, but I know IBM uses a new "high performance" JVM
starting with WDSCi 5.1, so perhaps something didn't get installed right.

Just installed 5.1

Hi all,

I just installed 5.1 with seamless ease and migration from 5.0(thanks for
that!).  I have come across my first problem:-)  When I first open WDSc 5.1
I don't have it connecting to my iSeries, but I do have it retain the state
of my environment (all of my RPG source members are open as I left them).
In 5.0 I could immediately start editing the source members without having
to connect, and when I saved it the connection would automatically happen.
With 5.1 if I don't connect to my iSeries manually before I do a save on my
source member it just sits there locked stating that it is connecting to my
iSeries, but after 3 minutes nothing has happened (usually takes 5 - 8
seconds).

I tried clicking the "Cancel current process" red square beside the
scrolling "Working on something" indicator at the bottom of the screen.  It
just sits there and hangs. . . Same is true if I try to do an Outline on a
2000+ line source member (99% is sub procs).

Just like Mike Wills I also cannot seem to get Code Assist to work for
variables or bifs.  I type in % and then Ctl + Enter and nothing happens.  I
looked through the LPex editor settings and didn't see anything in there.

Any suggestions?  

**Note** I don't have all of the "Missing PTF's" installed yet being that I
just installed this last night.  

Aaron Bartell

p.s. WDSc 5.1 does start faster and I thank you for that!

 >> I type in % and then Ctl + Enter

It is Ctrl + Space I think.  Can't get to WDSc right now and I'm having to
rely on my brain's memory and not my fingers!

Re: Just installed 5.1


Aaron,

As Jon indicated it is Ctrl-Space not Ctrl-Enter.  Also, you do not mention
it, so I will ask, do you have the Outline view refreshed?  The feature
only works if the outline view is populated.

JVM Failed to Initialize


Paul,

I have seen messages in the WSAD forums that some people are having
problems using this new JVM on AMD CPU's.  Do you know if your CPU is an
AMD or an Intel?  FWIW, those people are getting runtime errors, the
product still works somewhat, so it is not the same as you.

You could try running it with a different JVM.  For example, install the
latest official JVM from Sun on your PC.  Then copy your WDSC desktop
shortcut, and add the following command-line args to the end of the exe
specified on the shortcut.

-vm C:\JavaFolder\bin\java.exe

This lets you start it with a different JVM.  IBM only "supports" their
JVM, but this might get you working, and it will not hurt anything since
you are just using another shortcut.

Here is a URL with more details on the command-line arguments.

http://download2.eclipse.org/downloads/documentation/2.0/html/plugins/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/tasks/running_eclipse.htm

Hope this helps.

Mark
