WDSC RSE RDi for Programmers

12 days


During this course, delegates are introduced to Websphere Development Studio Client (WDSC) (or Rational Developer for i) and the Cooperative Development Environment (CODE) - the GUI replacements for the Programmer Development Manager (PDM). For application developers, these tools provide a completely new development environment and one which allows for faster (and easier) application development and maintenance.

After completing this course delegates will be able to:

  • Take advantage of the productivity gains made possible by using the new functions in the WDSC/RDi and CODE GUI environments.
  • Off-load development work to the PC environment and work disconnected from the i system (System i , i5, iSeries and AS/400).
  • Use WDSC/RDi and CODE for both legacy and leading edge languages.


This course is intended for programmers working with System i , i5, iSeries and/or AS/400.


Attendees should have a good knowledge of the iSeries system, either by attending our Introduction to iSeries/i5 course or though equivalent experience.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
