What I have done for cases like this is to create a java program which runs in a separate job. I write the SQL statement to be run to a data que from the program that needs the information; the java program runs the sql statement and writes the row (or rows) to a keyed data que the original program is reading from (the key is the original program's job indicator so that multiple jobs can use the same que). You can avoid the overhead of invoking the program an making a connection for every row you whish to retrieve; which can be significant. If you are interested I can dig up an example. -----Original Message----- From: java400-l-bounces+jehimes=liberty.edu@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:java400-l-bounces+jehimes=liberty.edu@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Kelly Cookson Sent: Wednesday, October 26, 2005 11:48 AM To: Java Programming on and around the iSeries / AS400 Subject: Passing parameters between Java and CL/COBOL/RPG programs I have developed a Java program that runs on the iSeries and uses a JDBC driver to establish a connection to an SQL Server database on a windows machine. Here's what I'd like to happen: (1) A CL (or COBOL or RPG) program calls a Java program on the iSeries. (2) The Java program uses JDBC to retrieve a single row from a table in the SQL Server database. (3) The Java program passes the value of one field from the row back to the CL (or COBOL or RPG) program that called it. Has anyone done something similar? Would you be willing to share an example?
