Software Projex blogs › How to Download and Update WebSphere Development Studio Client (WDSC7)
If your caught between using SEU (stoneage editting utility) and RSE (Really Stupidly Expensive) for your IBM-i code development environment - you have one other glaringly obvious choice - WDSC (Wonderful Double Super Codetool).
Personally, I like WDSC because its $FREE. This was the last iteration of the Websphere Development suite before IBM, rebuilt and rebranded it as the 'Rational Developer Tool' and decided to charge $900 per copy. For Freelance RPG Programmers like me that just puts the tool completely out of my budget. I pay one third of that for a license for every piece of Microsoft Software out there... but enough of my gripes about IBM's ridiculous software costs for us freelancers.
- Grab yourself a copy of WDSC7 - hint its out there in TORRENT land
- An update to the final version of WDSC can be download ($free) from IBM at http://download.boulder.ibm.com/ibmdl/pub/software/awdtools/wdsc/v7/7008/zips/
Grab it before its gone.
