1.1.4 IBM i Development

If you are developing applications for the IBM i, you can use the Visual LANSA or the LANSA for i development environment. All of your IBM i development needs can be met using the Visual LANSA development environment, and this is the environment recommended for LANSA developers. LANSA for i development cannot use an RDMLX Partition. (For information about Partitions, see RDML and RDMLX Partitions Concepts in the Visual LANSA Administration Guide.

Your first steps in the project will be Creating Fields and  Creating Application Databases.

It is important to review how Application Templates can improve your productivity before you begin Creating Applications using Functions.

If you are developing Internet applications for IBM i, you may also be doing 1.1.2 Web Development or 1.1.5 Integration.

If you are using PC-based tools (such as Visual Basic or Delphi) to develop client/server application using an IBM i database, review 1.1.6 LANSA Open Development.
