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.

That would make sence. 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.
