We're using the JDBC driver, remote commands and program calls. 

No need for CA/400 ODBC or .Net Provider. 

The other beauty is you can XCOPY deploy your .Net apps including the 
JT400 data provider. 

Imagine coding Java-ish in VB.Net.  Quite an interesting mix. 

There's a short intro article on my blog site in regards to IKVM:

This is pretty interesting.  If you were to use this, would it be possible 

to also use the JDBC driver that is in JT400?  I am assuming you would 
still have to use the .NET provider for database access.  The advantage I 
can think of would be the easy deployment since iSeries Access would not 
have to be installed if you could just use JT400 for everything.
