The Valence framework for IBM i, available for free download, includes a browser-based low-code development utility called Nitro App Builder (NAB). Using this tool, anyone with a solid understanding of their IBM i database can, in a matter of minutes, create slick-looking web or mobile apps, including dashboards and data grids with download-to-Excel functionality. Running entirely on IBM i, NAB can also be used to create intricate file maintenance apps through which users can adjust content in one or more physical files — you control which fields they can see or edit.

All of this can be achieved with no coding, though IBM i developers can easily extend the app's functionality with RPG or SQL code to handle business logic as needed. Advanced programmers comfortable with HTML5 and JavaScript code can take things even further, creating super elaborate data-entry apps that work hand-in-hand with server-side RPG logic through the Valence Portal.

The bottom line: With Valence, whether you're a seasoned RPG developer or a database-savvy user, you can crank out highly functional web and mobile apps on IBM i in no time — no prior experience in web or mobile development required! Join us in this quick demo session to see the latest release of the Valence framework, and how easy it is to build and deploy such an app on your system.
