Integrated Language Environment Description

As Figure 1 shows, ILE is tightly integrated into IBM i, just as OPM is. It provides the same type of support for procedure-based languages that EPM does, but it does so far more thoroughly and consistently. Its design provides for the more traditional languages, such as RPG and COBOL, and for future language developments.
