IBM i 7.2 Improved Temporary Storage Tracking

Newish RPG Features

Yesterday’s mail included an update from the RPG Cafe that appeared to be announcing two new features for V7.1 and 7.2 RPG. We attempted to download the PTF only to be told that it was already installed. Strange ... wonder who did that? A DSPPTF revealed the answer. This was not actually a new announcement; rather it was an update to the wiki page.  These updates became available back in October 2014!

The IBM i Future: Hints from DB2

In a previous post about the future of IBM i, I shared some of the primary messages we give to customers who ask us things like, “Show me a roadmap for IBM i for the next five years” and “Is IBM going to support IBM i in the future?” Typically, these questions get asked by CxO types in companies—CTOs, CIOs and CEOs who don’t have much experience with IBM i and its predecessors, or who have been depending on the platform for a long time, but who have had no reason to pay close attention to the blogs, whitepapers and conference sessions we’ve been creating for the customer base. The messages from that post are often enough to calm the anxiety of CxOs, particularly if we get to deliver them in person.

Fun with SQL

In writing about the upcoming IDUG DB2 tech conference last week, I noted that the event includes expanded content for developers. This is no isolated occurrence. The IDUG organization has been expanding its focus to include greater education and support for developers (in addition to its traditional audience of DB2 systems programmers and database administrators). With this in mind, I want to mention the "online SQL challenge" that's going on throughout April.
