31BO Test Driven Development - Best Practices Applied to IBM i with Assistance of Tooling

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Current best practice for producing high quality software is Test-Driven Development. These practices can be applied to RPG development on IBM i. The end result is software where every single line is covered by an automated test and can easily be regression tested on every build of your deliverable. Tools such as RPG Unit and RDi can be used to support this process and make it easier and more enjoyable.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn the best practice of Test Driven Development

  4. See how the open source packages like RPG Unit can help
  5. Learn how Rational Developer for i can be used to support this process
