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.
