Thanks for your feedback.

It can do program calls and use files etc, so it is not that limited.

The primary reason I am looking at it, is because jt400.jar is designed very
robustly (all classes, no interfaces) making it a very interesting exercise
to do integration tests (etc) without having an actual - and properly
configured - AS/400 system to talk to. I think I've found an angle but a
simpler solution would be preferred and jtopenlite might be it.

Subject: Re: Anyone tried jtopenlite yet?

I took a quick look but frankly, writing native Android apps just hasn't had
a high enough ROI for me to invest much time in it, so I haven't spent any
time with the "lite" version of JTOpen. It is SO much simpler to write a
REST app (or a servlet on the i ) that returns JSON directly from the i
rather than write an Android app that used JDBC to communicate with a remote
i that I haven't found a compelling reason to go there (yet).

There might be a use case for using it in a Raspberry Pi installation where
overall storage is limited but in the mobile world I haven't found a use for
it.

Hi



I was just wondering if anyone has tried out the new (since jtopen
7.7.1) jtopenlite alternative to jt400.jar yet, and had experiences to
share?



Thanks
