This course teaches additional skills and techniques to programmers who can already write comprehensive RPG IV programs.This class offers a comprehensive discussion of some of the advanced features and functions of RPG IV. This class is designed to enable an experienced RPG IV programmer to develop and maintain RPG IV programs of an advanced level using the latest features and techniques available in the IBM i RPG IV compiler.
You must have attended these courses (or have equivalent experience):Introduction to IBM i for New Users (OE98G) IBM i Technical Introduction, (OL4AG) RPG IV Programming Fundamentals Workshop for IBM i (AS06G)You should be able to:Use a Windows-based PCRun PC applications using menus, icons, tool bars, and so forth
This course is the second in a series of two classes designed for programmers who want to learn to code using the IBM i ILE RPG IV language. Previous programming experience using RPG IV is mandatory before enrolling in this course. The student should have attended RPG IV Programming Fundamentals Workshop for IBM i (AS06G).Previous techniques and the maintenance of programs written using legacytechniques are not covered in the classroom.
