RDi 9 & Install Problems

August 15th, 2013 No comments

A few notes …

  1. The RSE Enhancement’s plug-in should be compatible with Rational Developer for IBM i 9.0 (RDi).
  2. Some people are reporting problems installing the plug-in … please be sure to uncheck the “Group items by category” on the Install dialog (see below).

New Update Site

April 14th, 2011 9 comments

Due to changes in this blog, I had to rework the update site.

Please use http://rse.midrange.com as the Eclipse update site for the RSE plug-in.

RDp 8 Support

November 1st, 2010 No comments

I just tested the plug-in with RDp 8 and it seems to work fine.

You will have to install the plug-in in RDp 8.  Just follow the instructions from this page.

If, after you add the update site, you don’t see the plug-in … try deselecting the “Group items by category” option.

What functionality would you like to see this plug-in have?

My goal is to have it contain many small, incremental, enhancements to RSE that will be of use to IBM i developers.

The only thing on my list at the moment is to add a better editor for 2nd level message text.

Update – At Long Last

May 21st, 2010 6 comments

OK, it’s been a while, but I’ve finally gotten the plug-in updated to work with RDi 7.5 & higher (this includes RDP).

The installation is even easier now … just add http://plugin.midrange.com/update to the Eclipse update site and the plug-in will install. It will also allow you to easily update it when new releases are available.

I’ve also decided to ‘stabilize’ the WDSC 7.0 / RDi 7.1 version of the plug-in, so new updates will only be made to the RDi 7.5+ version.

I have a bunch of ideas for new capabilities for the plug-in … so keep an eye on this space.

RDi 7.5 support

March 22nd, 2009 No comments

Sorry for the delay … but I’m now working on updating this plug-in to work with RDi 7.5.  I hope to have something available later this week.

If you’re attending COMMON in Reno this spring, I’ll be presenting an Introduction to RDi Plug-in Development session.

RSE Plugin

August 12th, 2008 1 comment

The other day Mike Wills posted a message in the WDSCI-L list asking if there were a way to have the Remote System Explorer tree in WDSC show an objects description to the right of the objects name.

After thinking about it a bit, I determined that what he wanted was a “label decorator” for the RSE tree.  This, I figured, would be fairly easy to add as a stand alone plug-in.

When I got home I did a bit of hacking in WDSC and came up with a (very) simple plug-in to acomplish what he was looking for.

I created the plug-in and put it up on Google Code … it’s not quite ready for an automated install, but you can play with it if you want … visit http://rse-enhancements.googlecode.com to get the source.
