Development
Hello All, I have been given the assignment to construct a logical enviornment to incorporate service programs, binding directories and activation groups accordingly. Bottom line, we want to implement ILE on our iSeries. We are retail business and program mainly in RPG IV and Free-Format. Where do I start? I understand the concepts but having trouble implementing.

Hi,

    There's an excellent Redbook: "Who Knew You Could Do That with RPG IV?" - should be able to find it by searching. My general/simple advice: Service Pgms: for those types of routines/pgms that you'd use from multiple pgms such as validity-checking (valid ISBN), conversion pgms (currency conversion), to simplify API usage, and many others. Binding Directories: simplifies the binding (compiling) of your pgms when using service pgms. Activation Groups: I keep it simple - just don't use *DFTACTGRP (can't when you take advantage of service pgms anyway) - use QILE, the IBM default for the ACTGRP. You have to really understand what you want to do and how it works to work with multiple activation groups.
