Easy400.net provides a number of tools that encourage RPG programmers
in developing WEB applications on IBM System i.
In July 1997, Giovanni B. Perotti, at that time working for IBM Italy, founded the site Easy400.ibm.it,
for allowing AS/400 developers to know and to use the WEB RPG enabler named CGIDEV (the original name of CGIDEV2).
In the following eight years, Giovanni added to the site a number of other free open-source utilities.
When in July 2005 Giovanni retired from IBM, he started his new personal site, this one, Easy400.net,
which has been continuously enhanced with new open-source tools.
Giovanni is still spending most of his time in providing support to the IBM i community.
Easy400.net is an Open Source site.
In other words, all the Easy400 tools (unless otherwise stated)
do not need any authorization code (never expire, are always enabled to run)
can be redistribuited, if this is done at no charge
can be re-engineered and / or integrated into private or commercial products,
without requesting any permission, provided that those products carry different
names from the Easy400.net original tools.
To know what utilities can be downloaded from this site:
PLCHECKUP, "Change Impact Analysis" tool, based on system-provided object cross-reference features.
Each new subscriber is furthermore allowed to download free of charge a single utility (MMAIL excluded) for the first time
If you provide an yearly contribution, you
may download all the available utilities for 12 months, as many times as needed
are entitled to remote support.
The Easy400.net utilities are provided "AS IS" without any warranties of any kind.
The implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose
and non-infringment are expressly disclaimed.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties,
so the above exclusions may not apply to you.

Worked 39 years for IBM Italy. Started with OS/360, went through 370, enjoyed System/38 and landed on the greatest system of them all: AS/400.
I was used to play two roles, manager and professional at the same time.
In year 1997 I got a major stroke when I discovered the easy way to make WEB from some Mel Rothman's work, CGIDEV.
That day I started a mission: enable AS/400 programmers to build WEB sites using their existing knowledge.
After retiring in year 2005 I decided to go on by myself.
Since then I've got lot more recognition than I ever had from IBM.
