Probably Record level access makes sense, however the table or member probably needs to be created with a CL command or other method unless RLA can do an ADDPFM.

Or he could SQL upload to a temp file and do a CPYF or call existing code.

Or use FTP as he is now.

Or put file to the IFS with IFS classes and call CPYFRMIMPF or CPYFRMSTMF.

Probably at least 10 ways to do this.

I would suggest record level access (RLA) ... since SQL (and therefore JDBC) doesn't deal with members well.

Check out https://ibm.co/2JMVmV1 for a basic example of using RLA

https://javadoc.midrange.com/jtopen/com/ibm/as400/access/AS400File.html is a good starting point for java classes.
