I'm using new AS400().

Here is the stack trace:

com.ibm.as400.access.ExtendedIllegalStateException: system: Property is not
 at java.lang.Throwable.<init>(Throwable.java:196)

 at java.lang.RuntimeException.<init>(RuntimeException.java:43)

 at java.lang.IllegalStateException.<init>(IllegalStateException.java:38)

 at com.wibank.is.cold.UserTest.processQueues(UserTest.java:27)

 at com.wibank.is.cold.UserTest.run(UserTest.java:19)

 at com.wibank.is.cold.UserTest.main(UserTest.java:59)

This error only occurs when the user profile has password *NONE. Here is the
code that generated the error. It's a much cutdown version just for
demonstrating the error:

package com.wibank.is.cold;

import com.ibm.as400.access.AS400;
import com.ibm.as400.access.SpooledFile;
import com.ibm.as400.access.SpooledFileList;
import static com.ibm.as400.access.PrintObject.*;
import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.util.Enumeration;

public class UserTest {
    public UserTest() {
        this.system = new AS400();
    public void run() {
    protected void processQueues() {
        try {
            SpooledFileList splfList = new SpooledFileList(this.system);
            Enumeration splfEnum = splfList.getObjects();
            while (splfEnum.hasMoreElements()) {
                SpooledFile splf = (SpooledFile) splfEnum.nextElement();
                System.err.println(splf.getStringAttribute(ATTR_JOBSYSTEM) +
"-" +
                        splf.getName() + "-" +
                        splf.getNumber() + "-" +
                        splf.getJobName() + "-" +
                        splf.getJobUser() + "-" +
        } catch (Exception e) {
    protected void initializeJDBC() {
        try {
                    new com.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver());
            this.dbConnection = DriverManager.getConnection(
        } catch (java.sql.SQLException e) {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        UserTest mainApp = new UserTest();
    protected AS400 system = null;
    protected Connection dbConnection = null;

1. It would help if you sent a full stack trace of the exact exception that
you're getting.
2. When creating the AS400 object, are you specifying a systemName of
"localhost" or using the

  new AS400()


If not, what does your AS400 constructor invocation look like?
