Description

Functionally, Application Management Toolset for i is a subset of the venerable Application Development Toolset (ADTS) which is sold as part of WebSphere Development Studio for i 6.1 or as part of Rational Development Studio for i 7.1 and 7.2. Two of the key components of ADTS are Programming Development Manager (commonly known as PDM) and Source Entry Utility (commonly known as SEU). Application Management Toolset for i includes these two components, in modified form. Specifically:

The version of SEU, that is included in Application Management Toolset for i, only supports editing of CL source. It does not support editing of source members written in other languages such as RPG, COBOL, C, C++ or DDS. Like SEU, this editor provides language- sensitive features such as syntax checking and prompting for CL source members.

  • Application Management Toolset for i supports the operating system member types: CL, CLLE, CLP, TXT, and CMD in the EDTCLU (same as STRSEU) command.

  • Application Management Toolset for i does not support the following member types in the EDTCLU command:

    • Operating system types:

      BAS, BASP, BND, C, CBLLE, CBL, CICSCBLLE, CICSCBL, CICSSQLCBL, CICSC, CICSMAP, CLD, CPP, DFU, DSPF, FTN, ICFF, LF, MENU, MNU, MNUCMD, MNUDDS, PAS, PF, PL1, PNLGRP, PRTF, QRY, REXX, RMC, RPG, RPGLE, RPT, SPADCT, SQLC, SQLCLE, SQLCBL, SQLCBLLE, SQLFTN, SQLPLI, SQLRPG, SQLRPGLE, SRT, TBL

    • System/38 types:

      BAS38, BASP38, BSCF38, CBL38, CL38, CLP38, CMD38, CMNF38, DFU38, DSPF38, LF38, MXDF38, PF38, PLI38, PRTF38, QRY38, RPG38, RPT38, SRT38, TXT38

    • System/36 types:

      ARS36, ASM36, BAS36, BASP36, BGC36, BGD36, BGF36, CBL36, DFU36, DSPF36, DTA36, FOR36, MNU36, MSGF36, PHL36, OCL36, RPG36, RPT36, SRT36, TXT36, UNS36, WSU36

The version of PDM that is included in Application Management Toolset for i can be used to browse, move, filter and otherwise manipulate objects of any type, but it only enables software development options (such as Edit and Compile) for CL objects.

  • Application Management Toolset for i supports the following functions from PDM:

    • All the menu functions of STRPDM (new command STRAMT)

    • All the functions of WRKLIBPDM (new command WRKLIBAMT)

    • All the functions of WRKOBJPDM (new command WRKOBJAMT) including FNDSTRPDM (new command FNDSTRAMT) with the exception of:
      • No option 18 to call DFU
      • No option 34 to call ISDB
      • No option 54 to call CMPPFM

    • All the functions of WRKMBRPDM (new command WRKMBRAMT) including FNDSTRPDM (new command FNDSTRAMT) with the following exceptions:

      • Option 2 (Edit) uses new command EDTCLU which will only support the member types that are listed above

      • No option 17 to call SDA

      • No option 19 to call RLU

      • No option 54 to call CMPPFM

      • No option 55 to call MRGSRC

None of the other components from ADTS are included with Rational Application Management Toolset for i. The excluded components are:

  • Screen Design Aid (SDA)
  • Report Layout Utility (RLU)
  • Date File Utility (DFU)
  • File Compare and Merge Utility (FCMU)
  • Interactive Source Debugger (ISDB)
  • Advance Printer Function (APF)
  • Character Generator Utility (CGU)
  • Application Development ToolSet Client Server (ADTS CS)

The other key difference between Rational Application Management Toolset for i and ADTS is the way they are licensed and priced.

  • ADTS, as a part of WebSphere Development Studio for i or Rational Development Studio for i, is licensed per user (a license must be purchased for every individual who might browse the file system with PDM, edit a program with SEU, or compile a program with one of the heritage or ILE compilers). The price per user license remains the same regardless of the type or software tier of the machine on which it is used.

  • Application Management Toolset for i is licensed per processor, for unlimited use on that processor by any number of persons. The license is priced according to the software tier of the machine on which Application Management Toolset for i is used.

Like WebSphere Development Studio for i and Rational Development Studio for i, ongoing maintenance and support costs for Application Management Toolset for i are included in the IBM i system Software Maintenance agreement (SWMA).

Application Management Toolset for i 7.2 is delivered as continuance of support, as the capabilities of ADTS. ADTS is stabilized as of Version 6.1. Therefore the capabilities of AMTS are stabilized as of Version 6.1.
