RPG Open I/O in IBM i 6.1.1 and 7.1

Leah Rosin Leah Rosin Profile: Leah Rosin

After attending the RPG & DB2 summit in October 2009, Profound Logic founder, Alex Roytman, got interested in some of the features that will be released in the upcoming versions of the IBM i operating system. Roytman is joined by Philip Roestamadji, marketing director at Profound Logic, and they discuss what they learned about RPG Open I/O. Two highlights include the possibility of using RPG to access non-DB2 databases, making RPG work with Oracle or MySQL databases, the other is using RPG to interface with browser applications to interface with browser applications, XML or mobile devices.

    why kick a dead dog? Maybe (??) RPG is the best programming language for business applications on IBM i, but imho, a programming environment that in November 2009 is still without those features you drool about, ought to be retired. You can blame IBM marketing or lack of it on the demise of the IBM i platform, it does not matter much. Adopting some common business terminology, the IBM i is a dog, and RPG should be delicately maintained by IBM until the bulk of businesses worldwide cease to use it.
