I don't have much experience with AppletViewer, but it seems to ignore the
local classpath.  My setup is:

HTTP Server is my AS/400
HTTP Server configured to share all files in my directory on the AS/400
.HTML file contains only:
     <HTML>
     <body>
     <applet code="test.JDDriverTest.class" width=700 height=500></applet>
     </body>
     <html>

Test 1:
     CLASSPATH=c:\jt400\lib\jt400.jar
     AS/400 has .html
     AS/400 has testcase .class files in a directory called "test"
     appletViewer http://myAS400/mydir/JDDriverTest.html

     I get classdef not found

Test 2:
     CLASSPATH=nothing
     AS/400 has .html
     AS/400 has test .class files in a directory called "test"
     AS/400 has Toolbox .class files
     appletViewer http://myAS400/mydir/JDDriverTest.html

     Applet works

If my PC's classpath were used by applet viewer, test 1 should have worked.
Since it didn't but test 2 worked at least there is a way to test by having
all files on the HTTP server (an AS/400 in my case).  Since I am on a local
lan, the performance of downloading the .class files off the AS/400 was
acceptable.  I should have also tried another test where I put the Toolbox
and testcases into a jar, and reference that jar on the applet tag (the jar
would have to be on the AS/400).  That should work as well (but is left as
an exercise for the reader :->).

I hope this is enough to get you going,

Subject:  What is the suitable JDBC Driver for an Applet to connect to an
      AS/400 !@!!@



I have my class path set up and I can access the AS/400 via a dos prompt
call to a Java app. The Java app uses the AS/400 toolbox JDBC driver and
display the records on the screen. I am having difficulty accessing the
AS/400 via appletviewer. I am using the AS/400 toolbox JDBC driver, but I
still get the no suitable driver error.

not all my code just a snippet()

import java.net.URL;
import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.Applet;
import java.sql.*;
import com.ibm.as400.access.*;

// begin the applet ********************************************

public class Dbf extends java.applet.Applet
{

Button DBFConnect = new Button("Connect to AS/400");
TextField QueryField = new TextField(40);
TextArea OutputField = new TextArea(10,95);

Connection con ;

static {
  try{
    //java.sql.DriverManager.registerDriver(new
com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver()); // will not work!!!
     Class.forName("com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver");
     }catch(ClassNotFoundException e)
     { e.printStackTrace(); }
    } // end static

String system = "HOST";
String url = "jdbc:as400://" + system;
String Name = "USER";
String Password = "PASSWORD";

public void init()
