It's available at V5R4M0 and up (maybe V5R3M0?) Java 7 beta is out so it won't be long before that is an option.

Installation instructions here:

Actually, I don't know if this is a Java 6 feature but I did find this:

http://download-llnw.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/tools/windows/classpath.html

Which says (in part):
Class path entries can contain the basename wildcard character *, which
is considered equivalent to specifying a list of all the files in the
directory with the extension .jar or .JAR. For example, the class path
entry foo/* specifies all JAR files in the directory named foo. A
classpath entry consisting simply of * expands to a list of all the jar
files in the current directory.

HTH,

Shouldn't this
ADDENVVAR ENVVAR(CLASSPATH) VALUE('/JarFiles/datatelDatabaseUtility.jar:/JarFiles/sqljdbc.jar:/JarFiles/jt400.jar') REPLACE(*YES)

And this
ADDENVVAR ENVVAR(CLASSPATH) VALUE('/JarFiles/') REPLACE(*YES)

Work exactly the same?

Shouldn't the second way provide a path to all jar files in the /JarFiles directory in the IFS?
