Hello everybody: I think it is very usefull the share of experience in the use of Java/400, i can talk you that we are using it in a proyect, we need to connect ATM to our AS/400 with TCP/IP (Without ClientAccess), and using RPG for the applications in the AS/400. Java was very usefull to build a multithreaded gateway between TCP/IP and *DTAQ (vía Java Toolbox). The RPG applications read and write from the *DTAQ. All run great, and very fast. I am not using PBD. But it may work. ----- Original Message ----- From: <Pluta@nexgensoftware.com> To: <JAVA400-L@midrange.com> Sent: Wednesday, December 29, 1999 4:05 PM Subject: Life in general > > > Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, one and all. > > I apologize for my lack of posts of late.
