What is the format of the data in the file? If it's CSV, Tab
separated, or otherwise a delimited or fix length. The system has a
built in utility to load the data.

Copy From Import File - CPYFRMIMPF

To use CPYFRMIMPF, you'd need to copy the stream file into a directory
of the IFS unless the stream file is is a location accessible by the
system using the built in SMB or NFS clients.

Additionally, the IBM iSeries Access for Windows products include some
file transfer functionality to transfer directly from a PC file.

Lastly, if you chose to roll your own transfer using JDBC and you want
good performance you'll want to do batch inserts instead of one row at
a time. Take a look at the addBatch() methods available in
AS400JDBCStatement, AS400JDBCPreparedStatement, and
