Externalize Database Processing

The EXTERNAL library contains the sources used in the presentation "Externalize Database Processing in RPG IV". These examples provide a very basic introduction to the concept of externalized database processing and SHOULD NOT be considered as production ready code

Installation Instructions
  1. Download the Externalize Library (EXTERNAL)
  2. Upload and restore the EXTERNAL library.
  3. Change the current library to EXTERNAL.
  4. Review the source members in QCPYSRC and QRPGLESRC.
  5. Compile the members UTILMSGS and FILE01A using the CRTRPGMOD command
  6. Use the CRTSRVPGM command to create a service program named EXTERNAL consisting of the modules UTILMSGS and FILE01A
  7. Compile the member TESTPROCS using the CRTBNDRPG command. This program provides a simple means of testing the file procedures - copy and change it to your hearts content!

Please note that this is not a supported product - the source of the programs is included and you are free to chop and change them as you wish (standard disclaimer follows). Of course, if you come across any bugs please let us know
