First of all, if you are running V5R1 and you have PDM on that box, then 
you are entitled to use WDSC for free.  You just have to order it.

Secondly, you can still use plain Eclipse with the iSeries, but you do 
know you have to run it on a PC not directly on the iSeries?  It would be 
better if you could use WDSC, since it has built-in support for Tomcat 
plus a full JSP/Servlet editing environment.

        Subject:        Eclipse + iSeries WITHOUT WebSphere

I work on a Model 170 (purchased in 1998) running V5R1 and Java compiler 

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 
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.
