Alchemist currently supports change management on the AS400 platform at the V5 level. This is to say that file transfer, version transition (automated implementation and backout), and build management on AS400 servers is accomplished via a combination of FTP and scripting on the existing ESP Agent for OS400. ESP Alchemist V6 will support native file transfer, version transition, and build management without the need for FTP or extensive scripting. However, the initial target platforms targetted for V6 support do not include OS400.
Any Alchemist users with a requirement for these features on OS400 should follow up with Charles Crouchman, Senior Director Product Management.
This Frequently Asked Question applies to all supported releases of ESP Alchemist.
