Not that I would recommend this, but when, my first encounter with Java on the IBMi was Giuseppe Costagliola's SQL2JXL command. He distributed the Java class file in a source physical file member (named SQL2JXLJ); however to compile it it you had to copy it to the IFS and use

QSH CMD('javac +
         -classpath /QIBM/ProdData/OS400/jt400/lib/jt400.jar:+
         /excel/jxl.jar: +
         -d /excel +

to compile it.  I made some minor modifications to it that way, but that was 14 years ago.  Compared to what's available today, it's sort of like using a rock to pound a nail - you can do it, but...(images of being on a desert island trying to build a raft and somehow having nails but not a hammer...)

How does one use Java programs if you do not have access to the IFS via
of the tools?

If you only have the QSHELL to work with.
What does 'do not have access' mean? Does your system admin forbid
mapped directories? Is FTP restricted? What tools are you trying to use?
The answers to this might allow more applicable advice, but mine would
be to create and test the Java code on your PC with a PC-based IDE like
Eclipse, and then FTP the classfile into the IFS.

Having an issue even getting a directory created from a command line in
QSHELL. Much less running a JAVAC.
What issue? Is there a specific error message? Can you post the mkdir
command that's problematic?

Is this a current IBM i release?

Your updates make it better!
