Are you saying that you can't see why they would want to bring data in from another database ?

Except that accessing DB2/400 via a JDBC connection, through Scott's
JDBCR4 interface, is an act of "carrying coals to Newcastle," and useful only in the very early development stage. The object is not to write a Java program to access DB2/400, but rather to use JDBC calls sent through JDBCR4 to access databases (most likely NOT DB2/400) on other boxes.

I've made no secret of the fact that I personally can't imagine why anybody would want such a singularly useless capability in the first place, or why our competitors have bothered with adding that capability to their product, and yet we've actually had requests for it.
