These instructions are for setting up a LANSA development environment where the LANSA Master Repository will reside on an IBM i server. Perform each of the three tasks below to configure your environment. Complete and verify each task before beginning the next.

Task 1: Establish the LANSA Master System

The LANSA Master system contains the MASTER repository. This is a database that is used to store the definitions of the LANSA objects that your developers create. It is called a MASTER repository because it is used to permanently consolidate the work of all your developers.
