The world of application development on IBM i is rapidly changing. What is happening today and where is development on IBM i headed in the future? Regardless of the starting point, the end goal is the same – modern applications. The various technologies for building a solution will be explored. The session will follow three main focal areas. It will begin with a focus on the traditional application code and languages. IBM has continued to enhance and improve traditional languages by adding new functions and improving options for better user experiences. Next, there are new tools for creating both traditional and modern applications. The enhancements added recently to the Rational tools will be covered and some "best kept secrets" will be uncovered. The last focus will be in the world of Open Source languages and tools allowing even greater flexibility for leveraging IBM i. There have been significant announcements in this area including the new XMLService, providing access to IBM i resources (including programs, data and commands) from client scripting languages such as PHP, Ruby and Python as well as the traditional languages like RPG, Java, etc. At the end of the session, attendees will understand that the world of IBM i application development has a modern, rich and growing set of languages and tools for the development of application solutions.
