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!
