System i Developers Road Atlas
Alison Butterill, IBM

January 15, 2008 FASUG Meeting

The System i Developers Road Atlas continues to be a key initiative within the IBM System i Division as well as the WebSphere and Rational business units. It is a map of options designed to review and position all the development technologies that are used by System i developers of all persuasions.

The Atlas will review three major paths, all having a common goal - the industry standard Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Based on the previous System i Developer Roadmap, the first path describes the incorporation of traditional application code, the second path reviews various languages and tools for developing new components and the last path shows how to populate business components with existing code from elsewhere.

Since its introduction, the Road Atlas continues to be enhanced and extended based on feedback and industry experience. This presentation will focus on the most current version of the Road Atlas, version 4.
