Hi Alan.

For the JDBC job library list, try the following tips ...

        Specifying the library for JDBC to use ....

        Options include:

        1       using a url that is qualified by the library
                        For the Java toolkit:
                                        String aUrl =
                        For the Java JDK
                                        String aUrl =

                        where MYAS400 = the RDBDIRE for your local database
                                        MYLIB = your AS/400 library

        2       using a properties object with a library list for the
                                Properties p = new Properties();
                                p.put("naming", "sql");
                                p.put("user", "jimmason");
                                p.put("password", "jim");
                                p.put("libraries", "LIB1 LIB2 *LIBL LIB3");
                                Connection =
DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:db2://MYAS/400, p);

        3       using a program in QGPL that is called to set the library
list dynamically based on a passed parm, data area or data queue for a job

        the only negatives to 1 and 2 are the fact means for qualifying the
connection are specific to each driver type.
        If your application switches drivers for portability, you must deal
with this.
        Option 3 is generic but requires writing a simple CL program to set
a library list.  I've used it very successfully with JDBC.

Thanks to Arlene Soderlund for her suggestion but unfortunately,  it does
not correct my problem.  The command I used is as follows:


Using WRKACTJOB, I verified that the IMINTCL job has the correct library
list.  In addition I also verified that the QJVACMDSRV job that is spawned
also has the correct library list.  My java program calls DB2 stored
procedures, so a third job called QSQSRV running as QUSER is spawned and I
suspect that this is the component that is not getting the library list
from what is specified on the SBMJOB command.  I get error CPF4101 because
the stored procedure is trying to access a file not in the library list.
The QSQSRV job does not appear in the WRKACTJOB list when this error occurs
so I can not actually see the library list.

If I change my user profile to point the job description using "CHGUSRPRF
USRPRF(HEITKA01) JOBD(HEITKA01/IMINT)", then submit the job it works fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
