Strategies for Integrating eCommerce to JD Edwards World

Posted by Bill Onion

One of the most common misconceptions with IBM i is that it’s impossible to interface with it. People often think that the data is simply locked in there and they can’t integrate with IBM i, much less JD Edwards World. However, we have integrated many sites to IBM i, both alone and with JDE World, and there are a number of ways to access that information.

Is Your IBM i Data Where it Belongs?

IBM_i_data.pngWhen thinking of the IBM i (formerly AS/400 and iSeries) system, many people think of a system that has been around for 30+ years – it’s old, archaic, hard to work with, and the green screen interface is anything but slick or cool. Frankly, IBM i has a reputation of being old and difficult to integrate to web-based systems.

In 1988, System/34 and System/38 were replaced with AS/400. We universally accepted this amazing new server and never once referenced it by one of the predecessor names.

Are You Running JD Edwards World on IBM OS V5R4?

Posted by Bill Onion

September 2, 2015 | 11:00 AM

JD Edwards World software has been around since the late twentieth century, and most companies that are still using this system have been on it for many years, if not decades. JDE World has a loyal and passionate install base around the world that simply loves it, and we love JDE World too! These folks also love the underlying IBM hardware platform and the stability and scalability it brings. Unfortunately, many of these companies have also dropped their JDE Software Maintenance, and, therefore, have not kept their systems up to date, nor given their JD Edwards ERP the attention it deserves. IBM Software Support for OS V5R4 is getting expensive, as is the cost for older versions of Vertex. Given this situation, what are the options? What is a good approach to resolving this issue?

In a previous blog post, we discussed configuring 5250 sessions in IBM i Access Client Solutions, but we did not touch on the multiple ways the sessions can be launched. IBM has provided startup programs that allow you to create shortcuts and launch a session in a single step. You can even create a .bat file that will execute an SQL statement to retrieve information from IBM i tables and place the results in a .xlsx spreadsheet file.

Are You an AS/400 Developer Looking for a Job?

Posted by Bill Onion

April 6, 2015 | 1:04 PM

I was recently interviewing a candidate in my office whose situation is a common one: he is an RPG developer and his company is migrating to a new platform. This is a dilemma I hear often from people who are self-described AS/400 Developers with years of experience on the 400. They are experts in CL programming, SDA, PDM, and even RLU, but they are having trouble finding a job in the AS/400 market as they find that the market is shrinking.

Did You Inherit an AS/400?

Posted by Bill Onion

February 27, 2015 | 1:27 PM

Congratulations! You have been promoted to a new role within your organization, and along with the title you have new responsibilities and a new team. And, somehow along the way, you inherited an AS/400. You might be asking yourself, “What’s an AS/400?” or “Isn’t that an old hardware system with cranky developers?” or even “I thought that green screen system was dead.” There are still plenty of rumors out there – the AS/400 is a dinosaur (true), the talent pool is shrinking (true), and the AS/400 is a closed system and cannot integrate with anything else (true). However, it’s not as bad as it seems.
