Title: RE: JDBC Problems

Embedding your Main method code in a try/catch block should remove your catch/finally error.

        try {

        // Your java code

        catch (Exception e) {
                System.out.println("Error : " + e);

Subject: JDBC Problems

I am new to Java on the AS/400
Just received the Visual Age Enterprise edition with a new model 170.

I have a couple of questions if you don't mind. I bougth the book Java and
the AS/400 from
Daniel Darnell which is very good.

However, some things I don't seem to get working:

For example: the following statements:

import com.ibm.as400.access.*;
import java.sql.*;

public class DisplayAudit {

        public static void main(java.lang.String[] args) throws Exception {

DriverManager.registerDriver(new com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver());
Connection conn  =

Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("select * from " +

        java.math.BigDecimal custID = rs.getBigDecimal("CDENTL", 0);
        String custName = rs.getString("CDJOB");
        String custStreet = rs.getString("CDUSPF");
        String custCity = rs.getString("CDETYP");

        System.out.println("Customer ID     : " + custID);
        System.out.println("Customer Name   : " + custName);
        System.out.println("Customer Street : " + custStreet);
        System.out.println("Customer City   : " + custCity);

When I save this I get the error:
type mismatch: cannot convert from java.sql.Connection to Connection.

In addition I try to put a try box in front of the connection, use try,
before the statements I put a { and after the statements I put a }. Then I
get the error Expecting Catch or Finally.

Can anybody please guide me, I got it working last week but I don't know how
