There's really no need to use /QOpenSYs/QIBM/...

You could simply create a folder off the root, /POI

Dan,
I can barely spell Java, so I really appreciate the advice,
and, unfortunately, don't grasp the meaning of your FWIW comments,
but am keeping your post with the thought that the meaning will
emerge in time.

This is the path where I *think* I want to create the directory you
suggest:

/QOpenSys/QIBM/UserData

So, if the new directory is POI, then:

/QOpenSys/QIBM/UserData/POI

And class path:

/QOpenSys/QIBM/UserData/POI/poi-thing-1.jar
/QOpenSys/QIBM/UserData/POI/poi-thing-2.jar
. . .
/QOpenSys/QIBM/UserData/POI/poi-thing-6.jar

Hmm, my class path example looks ridiculous.

You really don't want those in Java400/ext. That's where java extensions
go. Java extensions are not subject to the same kind of security checks as
normal jars and it is really hard to override jars in that path. For the
most part, only security extensions to java should go in the ext path.

Create a directory in the IFS and put all your POI jars in there. When you
start your RPG program, make sure the classpath includes a full path to
*EACH* jar.

FWIW, depending on what operating system you're using, java will reside in
either /QIBM/ProdData/Java400 or /QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/Java. All the J9
JVM's live only in QOpenSys.

I think I now have the .jar files I need (thanks Gary and Darren) and I
think these need to be copied to: /QIBM/UserData/Java400/ext

But only have /QIBM/UserData/ but no Java400/ext

Do I just create these directories/folders ?
