The luncheon on the 8th was great!  The Old Spaghetti Factory was a very nice place for this event, the food was good, and the speaker, Kurt Williams, gave us a great presentation.  We also found out the David Larsen is retiring shortly and will be moving to Peru to begin a new adventure there. He has been with the GSLMUG user group since the very beginning and before!  We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

April 13th 2011 – Speaker: Dr. Paul Coleman – CHG Healthcare

This month we were priviledged to have Dr. Paul Coleman from CHG Healthcare talk about his full scale Salesforce.com migration and integration with their IBM midrange server (v6r1). They are tying RPG directly to Java classes so the RPG programmers can work directly with the Salesforce webservice APIs (SOAP & REST) without having to use a third-party web services solution, or API calls, or the ILE C compiler (Axis runtime in the XML Toolkit for i). They prototype the Java classes/procedures in /copy members and they call the java routines in free-format RPGILE just as they would any other sub-procedure. They are not using PCML/X.

Welcome to the new updated GSLMUG website

We’ve moved and updated the www.gslmug.com website again.  This time it allows for better content management and feedback from the members of the users group and visitors.  All the past meetings, videos, notes, etc. should now be available. 

Going forward we are looking at capturing more of the meetings on video and any meeting notes so that we can refer back to the website for review or if we missed anything. If you have any articles that you’d like to submit that are beneficial to the Midrange User Community, let us know and we’ll be happy to look at them. Take a look, register and let us know if you have any comments or changes you think need to be made.
