From: MidRange

I looked into this earlier and it seemed to be more difficult to set
up - creating all the fields and stuff. Or am I just seeing it that
way because I already have the statement/resultset stuff set up?

// Set up key and chain to file
key = new Object[] { item };
record =;

// Change the field contents and update the record
record.setField("ITDESC", newDesc);

I wrote a course comparing the two a while back, but in general it's
straightforward. You can find documentation on the standard JDBC stuff
about anywhere; it's pretty much industry standard. IBM has
on and
for the RLA stuff.
Could I access this course? Thanks for the nudge - I guess I need to do

The course is available from Rochester Initiative:

It's a little long in the tooth - it uses Visual Age for Java rather than
WDSC - but the concepts and the code are still perfectly valid.
