    Spaces for da win

    @kadler
    They didn't get a consensus on how many spaces, though.

    4

    Sounds good to me.

    You're not a true RPG dev if you use more than 2 spaces
    :joy:
    4 is the bomb though

    @BrianGarland
    4 is so much easier to read than 2 or 3.

    @WorksOfBarry Always spaces, never tabs (IMHO). I am a fan of 2 spaces, but I might be in the minority there.

    @aaronbartell I've always like 4 spaces, but since starting RPG and JS full time I have also been using 2 spaces
    Aaron Bartell
    @aaronbartell
    People that use 2 spaces have longer thumb life.

    LOL. People who use 12 spaces have more modular code.

    It is 2016 and we are still discussing spaces or tabs... our grandparents would be proud that we keep this tradition alive.

    Ok my 2 cents.. I use 3 spaces in all code developed in RDi. I use only tabs in NetBeans or any PHP code I develop. I have posted code to GitHub written in ILE C (ZIP and FTP Client) I program mostly in ILE C (all of our High Availability Products are written in ILE C with a smattering of CL and UIM for the interfaces). They are built using Service programs now as opposed to bound modules. Best practice is to set your tabs to 3/4 spaces and use tabs (I am too lazy).
    @WorksOfBarry I have the code for a SHA256 using IBM API's used it in a couple of projects but now use adler32 for most of my encryption. Let me know if you need any help, I am sure I can let you have some code to get you there.

    @IBMJesseG_twitter Is there currently anything like a web driver for 5250? For instance, I'm using Selenium Server and Chrome Web Driver to build end-to-end tests for my web app. I'm wondering if there are any OSS tools out there for 5250 automation in the same vein. If not, do you have thoughts on what it would take to build a solution like that?
    @kadler too ^

    ACS emulator has support for EHLLAPI. I don't know much more than that, though.

    @chukShirley Awhile back there were discussions on how XMLSERVICE could be used to navigate interactive green screens. I believe the discussion happened at COMMON 2015 with Tony Cairns and a few others. I also know IBM some products that do this, though the name is evading me right now. What's the use case?
    Chuk Shirley
    @chukShirley
    Refactoring legacy RPG. I just want to make sure I don't break anything in the process.

    @ThePrez
    EHLLAPI would be your best bet, assuming the basic macro stuff isn't sufficient

    IBMiOSS event at #COMMONS17

    Last year's open source roundtable in New Orleans was very well-received (thanks again to Mike Pavlak and Alan Seiden as primary sponsors). Our group is larger than it was last year, so we thought it is necessary to get some feedback from the community to help guide us in the planning for this year's event in Orlando.

    Please make your opinions known in this short survey https://ibmioss.typeform.com/to/UsuVzs .

    If you're interested, the results are automagically populated into this viewable Google Sheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16RlAaAM8-MC8ReZXtSej-W6PTK3zyk-zBzm5dO1YNbU/edit?usp=sharing .

    Additionally, we have an entire forum dedicated to the community for this event planning. We welcome in-depth participation on our Ryver platform. Here is the link to that forum https://ibmioss.ryver.com/index.html#forums/1078262 and, if needed, here is a link to join our community there https://ibmioss.ryver.com/application/signup/members/9tJsXDG7_iSSi1Q .

    Finally, if all the buzz from OSS on IBM i intrigues you, and you've not yet joined the growing community in the LinkedIn group, then here's a link https://www.linkedin.com/groups/8531863 .

    Is this the correct room for this question? Is there a supported SQL Server driver/PHP Extension on the IBMi to connect to SQL Server Databases from a ZendServer PHP Website? Searching the internet looks to be a dead end so far.
    Just to clarify. I meant MS SQL Server 2008 R2

    We have tried the mssql php extension using the freetds library, but binding params does not work. PHP 7 has dropped the mssql functions, so we would prefer to use the sqlsrv php extension.

    @phpdave
    Look into compiling sqlsrv php extension
