If an alias, alternative name, is specified and it is mixed case then it
appears to be enclosed in double qoutes. See original e-mail.

This morning I duplicated the problem I am seeing with Java / JDBC on the
green screen using QM and interactive SQL.

When using QM to run a query the alias / alternative name must be enclosed
in double quotes. For example:

SELECT
-- Columns
A."xfrCtrlKey", A."xfrType", A."xfrSendRcv", A."xfrId", A."ifsPath",

A."fileRegex"
-- Tables
FROM "SYSMONDB"/"XFRCTL00" A

Removing the double quotes from the library and file doesn't seem to cause
a problem.

Removing the double quotes from the field/column names causes a problem.

SELECT
-- Columns
A.xfrCtrlKey, A.xfrType, A.xfrSendRcv, A.xfrId, A.ifsPath,
A.fileRegex

Gives this error:
Column FILEREGEX not in table XFRCTL00 in SYSMONDB.

See how the SQL engine upper cased the column name fileRegex?

I am trying to use Ibasis to map DS/400 SQL tables to Java objects. I ran
into this problem.

Circling back to my original questoin, is there a property or something in
the JDBC which would allow mixed case column names without enclosing them
in double qoutes?.

[SQL0206] Column DUEDAY4WEEKENDACTION not in specified tables.
Because the column name is actually "dueDay4WeekendAction"
Are you saying column names on the 400 are case sensitive?
