If your code is running on windows, you shouldn't need to do anything
special to access a UNC path as long as the process is running under a
user profile that has access to that share.

If you need to access it with a different set of credentials, then
something like JCIFS would probably work. If you can get away with
specifying just a path on the IFS rather than a UNC path, you could also
use JT400 to access the IFS. You could even setup FTP and access it from
Java that way. Maybe I don't fully understand what the problem is, but
there are many ways to accomplish what you are talking about.

To access the ifs as an UNC, I believe you will need to use JCIFS just
you would if you were attempting to access a Windows share. You'll find
at http://jcifs.samba.org. I've not had a call to use it myself, yet,
will later this year. If you go this route, I'd be interested in hearing
your experience with it.

Subject: IFS share access from iSeries using UNC or drive mapping

We're running WAS( on the i5 (v5r4), and have a batch process
running on Windows that connects to it.

We have need to access an IFS share from WebSphere running the iSeries.
enough - just reference the IFS folder name.

PROBLEM: The batch process running on Windows that needs to access the
file by the same name.

IOW: We need to be able to access the file as \\iseries\share\file.xml
<\\iseries\share\file.xml>  from the windows server, and also as
\\iseries\share\file.xml <\\iseries\share\file.xml>  from the iSeries,
perhaps as I:\file.xml from both.

Having written this, it's more of a general i5 question.  Going to
with apologies anyway in case someone has encountered.
