Hi David,

The JTOpen/jt400 JDBC driver will also work if you pass null for the UserId
and Password. Here's an example using the reflection capabilities of the
JDBC client shipped with JTOpen (see
for details).

$ java -jar /qibm/proddata/os400/jt400/lib/jt400.jar jdbc:as400:localhost
!setvar C1=java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:as400:localhost")
Not calling method getConnection with java.lang.String
java.util.Properties because argsLeft = null)

Using "*CURRENT" does not work (and isn't supposed to work).

Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: The application server rejected the
connection. (The user ID or password contains a character that is not
at com.ibm.as400.access.JDError.createSQLExceptionSubClass(JDError.java:836)

A datasource will also work, but don't set the userid or password

!setnewvar DS=com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDataSource("localhost")
Not calling constructor with () because argsLeft = "localhost")
!setvar C1=DS.getConnection()

I hope this helps.

If you use the driver com.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver and specify the URL


I'm using JT400 ... com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver
