Import Code[edit]

Code can be very easily imported from an archive file to the IBM i server. MiWorkplace supports importing code to the QSYS filesystem or the IFS. The archive file must be in the ZIP format.

The import dialog is available by the menu entry "Import" in the context menu in the Remote Explorer. Either a library or a source file can be right-clicked for getting the "Import" menu entry in the context menu. If a library is selected a source file will be created by MiWorkplace. Depending on the content of the archive file it has either the name of the archived folder or SOURCES by default if the archive only contains files.

An import into a folder in the IFS will create the folder structure of the archive.
