  • Git on IBM i Part 3 - Ray Bernardi

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    It is possible to have the best of both worlds – an Agile workflow which greatly increases productivity and the stability that the IBM i platform brings. This session will show you things you may not have thought possible, such as taking IBM i native code from a GitHub repository, building it directly on IBM i, and deploying the objects to an automated test environment.

    Git is an integral piece to a complete DevOps cycle, a cycle you can easily tie together with tools aware of the intricacies of the IBM i platform. You may like the collaboration Git provides on its own and also want the social features GitHub brings, but how can all that be integrated on a platform which, to be frank, wasn’t built with Agile in mind? It is possible to have the best of both worlds – an Agile workflow which greatly increases productivity and the stability that the IBM i platform brings. This session will show you things you may not have thought possible, such as taking IBM i native code from a GitHub repository, building it directly on IBM i, and deploying the objects to an automated test environment. But it doesn’t stop there! We will examine a complete CI/CD workflow, from a feature branch all the way to a production deployment. All of this and more is possible with a tightly integrated toolset.

  • Working with JSON in RPG with YAJL - Scott Klement

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is quickly becoming an important document format for business data interchange, so what's the best way to process it from RPG?

    JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is quickly becoming an important document format for business data interchange, so what's the best way to process it from RPG? JSON provides the same benefits as XML, but is smaller (and so transmits over a network more quickly) and is much more efficient than XML to work with in web applications. Naturally, this means that your RPG business applications need to learn how to speak JSON in order to talk to many of the newer web services or exchange data with many tech-savvy business partners.
