While 4.x and later versions share the same library structure as 3.x, all database files and all programs are different.

Attention Existing LANSA Users

Read Below if LANSA is Installed on Your IBM i for purposes other than use with UFTP.

UFTP was developed using the LANSA 4GL development tool. The IBM i Initial Installation download contains a production version of this LANSA software that may conflict with your current installation.

If you are unsure whether LANSA is installed on your IBM i system, check to see if a data area called "DC@A01" exists on your machine. If it doesn't, then you do not have LANSA, and you may continue with the UFTP download and standard installation.

If the data area object does exist, then you already have LANSA installed on your IBM i and can optionally install UFTP in two ways:

  1. You can install UFTP and the associated LANSA environment. This will create a separate LANSA environment from your existing LANSA environment. UFTP can be safely installed and both LANSA environments can co-exist as long as the libraries do not conflict. The libraries used for UFTP are:
    • ST@PGMLIB: the LANSA Program Library (the standard LANSA install uses DC@PGMLIB).
    • ST@DTALIB: the LANSA Data Library (the standard LANSA install uses DC@DTALIB).
    • ST@COMLIB: the LANSA Communications Library (the standard LANSA install uses DC@COMLIB).
    • STFTLPGM: the UFTP Program Library.
    • STFTLDAT: the UFTP Data Library.
    • STGPL: the Surround Technologies General Purpose Library.

    If you choose this option, refer to the IBM i Installation download.

    Note: This is a LANSA production runtime environment only and cannot be used to edit, view or compile LANSA code. In order to use this LANSA environment, these libraries must exist in your library list ahead of any other LANSA environment libraries.

  2. Set up a partition for UFTP in your existing LANSA environment and install UFTP into that partition. Follow the instructions in the User guide for information on how to do this.

    Note: The LANSA environment must be LANSA Version 11.0 or Later.
