Modernising RPG Applications with Paul Tuohy

Another special day for TUG members and other IBM i professionals

Paul Tuohy

Modernising RPG Applications

Still stuck in an RPG/400 world? Well, this exciting Workshop will show you how modern programming practices and tools can transform your old monolithic RPG applications into a modern, highly modularized form that will position your business for the future. Rather than just throw hours of theory at you, this seminar takes a sample application and follows it through the process of converting from RPG/400 or basic RPG IV to full usage of RPG IV and ILE features, modularizing the code, adding DB2 UDB features and even replacing the green-screen with a graphical or browser-based interface.

Who Should Attend:

  • Programmers and Analysts who wish to modernize their existing applications.


  • Introduction
  • Use the Right Tools
  • Making Use of RPG IV - Beyond the Basics
  • Triggers
  • Moving RPG to ILE - the Basics
  • Really Moving RPG to ILE - subprocedures
  • Referential Integrity
  • Externalizing
  • Ready for the Web
