I write stand alone applications in eclipse and jar them up to the 400. I got the JRE from Sun and loaded it onto my box, making sure the jdk was the same as the 400. I do all development on the PC and when I'm ready to deploy, I jar it to a directory on the 400. I don't optimize for the 400 as a rule but I'm sure it would help.... In fact, I can create classes on the PC, run them on the 400 and migrate them to AIX where our web site runs, all without any changes... really slick... dan -----Original Message----- From: Jim Pleger [mailto:JPLEGER@xxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Friday, June 20, 2003 2:02 PM To: java400-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Eclipse + iSeries WITHOUT WebSphere 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. _______________________________________________ This is the Java Programming on and around the iSeries / AS400 (JAVA400-L) mailing list To post a message email: JAVA400-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/java400-l or email: JAVA400-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/java400-l.
