Given the following quick-and-dirty test program:

package test01my2008;

public class Test01My2008 {
public static void main(String[] args) {
AS400 system = new AS400("");
try {
} catch (Throwable t) {System.out.println("couldn't connect"); t.printStackTrace();}
ProgramCall program = new ProgramCall(system);
try {
} catch (Throwable t) {System.out.println("couldn't setProgram"); t.printStackTrace();}
try {;
} catch (Throwable t) {System.out.println("couldn't run"); t.printStackTrace();}

and given that the program MERCURY/TEST01MY08 does exist on the system (it's a simple CL that sends me a test message),
why am I getting this: QSYS.LIB/MERCURY.LIB/TEST01MY08.PGM: Object not in QSYS file system.
at test01my2008.Test01My2008.main( program: Property is not set.
at test01my2008.Test01My2008.main(

The program just sits there, not terminating (apparently waiting for the system.disconnectAllServices() to return), but a connection does show up in WRKTCPSTS *CNN.

If I leave out the "system.connectService(system.COMMAND)," I get the same exceptions, but I don't get a sign-on window, it doesn't sit there at the end, and no connection shows up in WRKTCPSTS.

Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong?
