We're writing the classes. And in many cases the classes have
customer-specific knowledge of the database. We're supplying the
customer with the .class files. It's actually an IT person that's
"installing" them, but he has little to no understanding of WAS or Java.

We will supply him with a web page where he uploads the class. Yes, I
could store it in the IFS and load it w/the class path. But then I'm
also considering backup/recovery. I know his backup of the IFS is not
solid. And on a restore I'd like to tell him to reinstall the orinal EAR
file for the app and he's done. If I use files in the class path then he
either needs a better backup/restore of the IFS or he needs to the
reupload the class files. If the class is in the database then all is

I'm happy to continue to debate the design -- it may indeed not be the
best one. However, assuming we do go this route, I still need to know if
anyone has loaded classes from bytestreams on the iSeries?
