If you start up a framework that is already using RAMP-NL, it will continue to use RAMP-NL.

So to get started with RAMP-TS you need to start with a framework that has no RAMP-NL details associated with it.

This means that the easiest way to get started with RAMP-TS is:

  • Start VLF using the lastshipped xml so you are using a default configuration to start with.
  • Ensure there is only one server defined and set it type "LANSA iSeries + RAMP TS"
  • Remove any existing RAMP-NL server definitions.
  • Ensure you are using a unique set of XML file names to store your framework details in (on the Framework -> Properties -> Framework Details tab). 
  • Use the “Save As” option to save this framework with a different name.

When you have successfully configured to use RAMP TS, when opening the RAMP Tools you should see this:

A framework (as defined in its XML file) is specifically bound to either RAMP-TS or RAMP-NL. This means it can only be used with that type of RAMP session.
