Use SQuirreL SQL During RPG Development with Embedded SQL

Any OS, any programming language, any database—SQuirreL is a perfect fit for almost any situation involving SQL!

tom_snyderWritten by Tom Snyder

In a previous article, I showed you how to install the SQuirreL SQL client to run interactive SQL on your IBM i. With all the new stuff to learn about and all the options that are out there, sometimes a little introduction to the basics will be all it takes to get rolling. In this article, I'll cover some of my favorite features that come with it.

The API Corner: Reading a Message File

Retrieve, display, and generally work with messages your way.

bruce_viningWritten by Bruce Vining

In the last article, "Reducing the Use of Compile-Time Arrays," we looked at using the Retrieve Message API QMHRTVM to randomly access the first-level message text associated with a message description. In this article, we'll look at an optional parameter of the QMHRTVM API. This parameter, Retrieve option, enables us to sequentially read messages from a message file in addition to random access to messages. We'll use this capability to write a sample program that finds all messages, within a specified message file, that contain one or more specific words (or more accurately, a sequence of letters) within the first-level text of the message.
