I think what Kevin is trying to do is forward the current job's security attributes (userid and password) to the server on the target system. If the Java program is running on the AS/400, it is running in an AS/400 job (with all the attributes of all AS/400 jobs). If you specify *current or use the default c'tor, the AS400 object extracts the current job's userid and password and forwards them to the server as the authentication information. If you have matching profiles on the source and target system, you can connect using this mechanism. This is probably most useful, however, when the Java program and data are on the same AS/400. In many cases the Toolbox still uses servers to get data. Using the servers means supplying a userid and password. The Toolbox can extract the userid/password from the current job and send them to the server.

WHen you instantiate the as400 object there is no current user or password. It has no idea if you are logged on through an emulator or if ther is another as400 object already connected. Also, as near as I can tell, the 400 does not keep track of which connections come from which host. I believe you will be forced to set up an actual username and passowrd to login with. --- "Adams, Kevin" <Kevin.Adams@ps.net> wrote: > Anyone having trouble creating an AS400 object using > *CURRENT for the > username and password? > When I try to connect to one of the services (i.e. > AS400.RECORDACCESS) it > tells me that the current user is 'null'. > > Any suggestions? > -Kevin > > Kevin Adams > perotsystems > 972.577.3154 > firstname.lastname@example.org > > +--- > | This is the JAVA/400 Mailing List! > | To submit a new message, send your mail to > JAVA400-L@midrange.com. > | To subscribe to this list send email to > JAVA400-L-SUB@midrange.com. > | To unsubscribe from this list send email to > JAVA400-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. > | Questions should be directed to the list owner: > email@example.com > +--- ===== Eric Merritt Information Systems Consultant McCormack & Associates, Inc.
