Post an idea
Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you
Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The Power teams will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Extend RPG compiler messages to support modern RPG naming
The current design for the compiler messages does not support the enhancements to modernize the RPG language. When messages are returned to a client via the *EVENTF option, the replacement values for the messages are limited to legacy system names. The event handling for clients needs to be enhanced to support longer field names. This should also include the data structure name if the data structure is qualified.
Sample messages return via evfevent: RNF7030: The name or indicator PROCEDU... is not defined. RNF7030: The name or indicator PROCEDU... is not defined. RNF7030: The name or indicator FIELD1 is not defined.
Would like to have: RNF7030: The name or indicator ProcedureOne_Call is not defined. RNF7030: The name or indicator ProcedureIn is not defined. RNF7030: The name or indicator ProcedureOut.Field1 is not defined.
