What's New for RPG

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

• Find out what's new in RPG for the next release, including enhancements for 7.2 and 7.3 delivered through PTFs after 7.3 was shipped. Some of the PTF enhancements discussed will be how RPG code can be written completely free of column limitations, how you can write complex data structures without using LIKEDS, the ON-EXIT opcode which lets you code "cleanup" code that will always run no matter how your procedure ends, the DATA-INTO opcode which lets you import data from any hierarchical document, such as JSON. Information about what's completely new in the next release will be available later, after it is announced.

Learning Objectives:

• Understand the new features available to RPG programmers in the next release. • Understand which of the new features are also available for 7.2 and 7.3.
