Program Development

Course Code: APD1


AS/400 Program Development is a self-paced, multimedia course designed to quickly give new AS/400 programmers the ability to use IBM's Application Development Tools to develop programs. OS/400 Control Language examples are used to provide students with hands-on experience with the Programming Development Manager and the Source Entry Utility.

Upon completion you'll be able to:

Create programming environment objects (test libraries, job descriptions, output queues).
Create source physical files for storing source program members.
Use the Source Entry Utility (SEU) features to create, edit, copy, move, and delete source code statements.
Use the Programming Development Manager (PDM) to copy, rename, delete, and print source members and objects.
Compile and test programs and commands.
Locate old versions of programs automatically saved by the AS/400.
Create user-defined PDM options.
Use advanced SEU and PDM features.
Separate user and programmer activity.
