I work on a Model 170 (purchased in 1998) running V5R1 and Java compiler jdk13. This is county government, so no hope of upgrading this vintage box; no hope of WebSphere Express Client, (even though it is relatively cheap), no hope of ANYTHING that costs money! Thanks to David Morris' excellent article, I've gotten Tomcat stand-alone up and ruuning, and also have been using Ant, downloaded straight from Jakarta. Ant works fine too, except it is s-l-o-o-o-w on the 170. But Eclipse ... how can you integrate it into AS/400? I went to Window-Preferences-Java-InstalledJREs, and added /QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk13/lib/jt.jar, and made it the default JRE. Compile seems to work OK, but when you try to run a simple HelloWorld application program, it won't run; just returns the message "Exception occurred executing command line." Do I need to add other jar files, or change the classpath? Or something else? Can anyone help? Has anyone out there been using Eclipse with AS/400 / iSeries INDEPENDENT OF WebSphere? I would SO like to get this to work! Writing Java servlets using only TextPad as an editor is NOT the way to go; I REALLY want to use Eclipse, if possible.
