Leveraging Free Java Libraries in Your RPG Programs

Java is a large stable development environment with a vibrant open source community.  Learn how to identify and leverage appropriate open source Java libraries to provide solutions within your IBM i programs.

Ryan Eberly
Joined the RPG programming community three years ago, coming from a decade of java programming. He works remotely for Goodville Mutual, a regional P&C insurance carrier based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He lives in Johnson, Vermont with his wife and four children. Ryan is passionate about leveraging open source, code analysis tools, and test automation to improve productivity. His contributions to the open source community include CFLint (ColdFusion code analysis tool), and RPGLEParser (an RPG code parser).

Message from the Vice President

Last month Tom McKinley from the IBM i Development Lab in Rochester, MN came to talk with us about using SQL Triggers, Functions and Procedures.  We learned how to add logic to DB objects using SQL triggers, to centralize logic using SQL functions and access data via User Defined Table functions.  Thanks, Tom, for sharing this information with us and we hope to learn from you again in the future!

Our speaker for May 18th is Ryan Eberly from VT who is relatively new to RPGLE on the i-Series world after working for a decade with Java Programming.  We are going to try a new topic...Java on the i-Series.  Learn about open source Java libraries to provide solutions within your IBM i-Series programs.  Come to the meeting and see what Ryan has to add to your i-Series knowledge!

Dawn Dawson, Vice President, NEMUG
