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...

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
