iSeries (AS/400) RPG/400 Programming
Now Released on Audio CD
Course Code: ARP1
iSeries-AS/400 RPG Programming is a self-paced, audio driven course designed
to quickly give new RPG programmers the ability to create report-writing and
file-processing programs using modern RPG/400 code. In addition, the programmer-trainee
will learn how to recognize, maintain, and, in some cases, convert earlier RPG
coding techniques. The course guides the students through the many steps of
RPG's Logic Cycle and teaches how to circumvent it. It also explains RPG specifications,
the differences between program-described and externally-described files, indicators,
control breaks, and types of output. Additionally, simple tables, data structures,
"O" specs versus printer files, RLU, and subroutines are among the
topics discussed. The student will work with two sample databases and create
useful business applications.
Upon completion you'll be able to:
Compile and execute
Define and manipulate
and create printer files using the Report Layout Utility.
Process data conditionally.
Recognize and maintain
non-structured RPG code.
Maintain and convert
earlier RPG code to modern RPG/400.
