Can you provide any additional information?  Where is your Java program
running?  If on an AS/400, is the data on the same AS/400?

Many companies provide JDBC drivers.  For the AS/400, IBM ships two -- one
that comes with the AS/400's JVM and one that comes with the AS/400 Toolbox
for Java.  The one that comes with the Toolbox is a "client/server" type of
driver.  It runs on a client that has a TCP/IP connection to the AS/400.
It uses existing servers on the AS/400 to access data.  Since it uses
existing servers, Java is not required on the AS/400.  Since the Toolbox is
pure Java, the client can be any machine with a JVM (OS/2, Win 95/98/NT,
AIX, Solaris, AS/400, ...).
