Title: Problem using SQL where library contains a period


I have a problem when using JDBC and SQL to access my AS400 database. The problem happens when there is a period in the library name. Eg Library TRK1.5B

An extract of my java code is as follows:
// Register Native JDBC Driver and connect to local DB.
Connection c = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:db2:*local");
// Run an SQL query on the table.
Statement s = c.createStatement();
ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM TRK1.5B.T2USERP ORDER BY SRUSER");
When this is run I get the following error message:         java.sql.SQLException: Numeric constant .5B not valid.?

This is because there is a period in the library name and SQL doesn't like TRK1.5B.T2USERP
If I change the library name to another that has no period eg TRKTEST the java program works fine. 
Any ideas apart from changing the library name on getting round this?
