Add OpCode for continuing to process "when" statements within Select group
sometimes it is necessary to need to process the remaining WHEN operands within a SELECT group. if the "CONTSL" 'Continue Select' were used then the OTHERWISE should not be true. (this up for discussion) Currently we need to do if-then-else group....
Allow the size of the rule pane within Rule Wizard to be more adjustable for visibility and ease of use.
This would be useful when managing rules within QRadar as this is the main medium for tuning. All QRadar users would benefit from this change as they would better be able to view all test definitions while being able to edit them at the same time....
RPG Language Feature - Variable Triggers - Computed Properties
Languages like Apple's Swift, Java, Python, C# have this fantastic feature called "Computed Properties". Think of them as "variable triggers". If new phrasing can be added to RPG's Dcl-S when defining a work variable, that would specify logic to b...
Add ability to use any RPG variable in an embedded SQL statement, including those that come from Qualified Dimensioned data structures
Programmers would benefit by not seeing the error - Variable :BLAH is not usable for reason X when writing exec SQL select statement in an RPG program. Some variables are allowed and some are not, but it is not always clear why this basic select d...

When sending an escape message with SND-MSG it is easy to catch that exception with MONITOR and ON-EXCP. But to receive the message (especially the message data), remove the message from the job log or re-send the message up the call stack, we sti...
Change ADDWLCGRP "Add Workload Group" to set the processor limit < 1,0
Our customers are using LPARs with less than one CPU assigned. To reduce the impact of ad-hoc queries (e.g. via ODBC) we need to set a CPU limit of the ODBC subsystem. Currently with a workload group we can only set a limit to a whole CPU. But we ...
Add ORDER BY Creation Date/Time to WRKSPLF and add *USRPRF option and System Value for Same
Our end users tend to keep SPOOLED files "forever" so the more days that pass, the longer their list of SPOOLED files becomes. I would be extremely helpful to provide a User Profile-based option for "SPOOLED File Sequencing" that is applied when U...
