AS/400
Hi, I am trying to locate software that will allow us to simulate an AS/400 for training and demonstration. Do you know of anything that will fit the bill? Thanks in advance for your help. Regards PJ

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

check out California Software baby iseries.

Not sure why anyone would need it today but
each to his own.

====================================================

No such simulation software exists outside of (perhaps) IBM. There was a product from California Software that could run most RPG programs (not RPG IV and not ILE) and many CL commands in a kind of simulated environment, but it was neither useful nor appropriate for training and demos. It would be cheaper to buy a used AS/400 than to buy software to simulate one; and you wouldn’t be running a simulation.

    If your setting up training and demos of your actual system, why not just create a Training/Demo environment and run the actual apps? You would basically set up a new library or libraries, duplicate anything that you need to keep things from using the live data, create new user profile(s). Copy your data (or a subset). Depending on how things are set up, you may need to do other things. The only thing you have to ensure is that there is no way for the Training/Demo users to get at your live data. So make sure to check to see if you need a new initial program for the user profiles or job descriptions.

    I'm not sure how well this would work but there are several sites around that will allow you to set up an iSeries account for free or for a small cost. You may be able to use one of those to do what you need.
