1.4.1 Recommended IBM i Development Model

The recommended IBM i development model is a Visual LANSA Slave to an IBM i Master System.

The reasons for this development model are:

  • The primary target platform is IBM i.
  • Development is primarily IBM i in-house.
  • A change management system or a version control system third party tool is used on IBM i.
  • This model can also be used for Windows development.
  • These are the requirements for this development model:
    • Task tracking and security
      For details, refer to Task tracking in the LANSA for iSeries User Guide.
    • Interfaces to third party tools for change management or version control.
    • Separate build machine for Windows deployments, if deploying to Windows too.
