ILE brings with it the topics of procedures, modules, service programs, binding directories and binder language - not to mention activation groups. How do they all fit together?

In this session, Susan will walk through a demonstration of the steps of the following topics. In the process, we'll discover some of the problems that can occur - what they look like and how to fix or avoid them.
 - Creating a (very) simple RPG procedure in a module
 - How (and why) to put that module into a service program
 - How (and why) to create a binding directory
 - How to use the binding directory to create programs to use our procedure
 - Adding a new procedure to the same module and service program
 - Pointers for testing procedures in service programs
- How to maintain the service program over time - including the use of binder language to avoid signature violations
