Software testing tools
I'm looking for some tools that will enable us to quickly compare our live and development environments to ensure they are identical and that any testing done on dev will provide true results. Does such a tool/utility exist both natively and external to the eye?

Software/Hardware used:
iSeries/RPG

Looks like IBM ARE might fit the bill.

    TAA Tools contains some tools you might find useful.  Option 54 in PDM will allow you to compare source. Or, you might right a program to utilize the command behind it to automate the process for muliple source members.

    To compare all libraries or objects in a library I would use the DSPLIB command and dump the data to a print file and use a little manipulatation to get that data from both systems to get the data into a spreadsheet and do lookups to makesure that the object is found in both systems. There is a file (the name of which escapes me at the moment) that contains a list of all objects. You could query that accross both system looking for non-found objects.  

    No matter how you slice it, this will be a big project.

    There are tools for comparing before doing a application upgrade (it has been 10 years since I used one of these tools, so the one I used escapes me now) that could be useful to you.
