March 2004 Monthly Meeting

March 16, 2004

WebSphere Development Studio 
Live Demonstration

Presented by
Doug Fulmer & Don Yantzi
of IBM 

iSeries customers and solution providers should be moving to the WebSphere Development Studio, whether they are working on traditional or new workload applications. Perhaps you'd like to make the jump but have no idea how to use the tolls or even what they look like.

Attend tonight for a complete look at the tools.  IBM's Doug Fulmer will provide a short overview of the tools, position them and describe how they are bundled and priced.

Then Don Yantzi, a Toronto developer on the WDS team  will spend an hour or so showing you LIVE how to work on RPG applications (see why the WDS editor is better than SEU and PDM), create web applications and connect to DB2 using a database wizard (see how easy this really is). Also, take a quick look at building Java servlets.

 Ask your questions directly to the lab developers.

This is a 'don't miss' session.  We will use an Internet Sametime connection to see live demonstrations of these new iSeries tools.
