    iRPGUnit is already supported as a plugin to RDi
    Simply go to Help>Eclipse Marketplace and search for iRPGUnit
    Note that this is an open source project and the plugin capability was contributed

    Maria Schwenk's IBMiUnit is also open source
    Anyone is free to contribute the RDi plugin ability just like was for iRPGUnit.
