Patrick,

It wouldn't be bisynch, but ASCII asynch.  John has done it before using
ICF files from a 400 to s 38 (using bisynch).

The plan is to use data queues from the 400 side to Java.  The question
is really one of how do we write from Java to the AS400 communications
line?  Will an ICF file still perform the function when called from a
Java program?

John,

We've done something similar with our Visa application. The Visa
application has an option to get data for authorizations from a data
queue, performs the authorization via a Visa VAP on the customer's
premises, and returns the result to a response data queue. You should be
able to interface to data queues from your Java application using a
server-side method. Do you think this would work? I'm also curious why
you are using Bisynch for authorizations? I thought Visa (and others)
are phasing out Bisynch?
