You can also use FileMaker Pro V5.0 and later with their ODBC interface.
 There are a couple of ODBC interfaces to the AS/400 for the Macintosh,
one is from NLynx systems (formerly Andrew, formerly KMW) and one is
from acrylis called Access/DAL.  The NLynx stuff was originated from
Client Access under license with IBM, and Access/DAL was developed
originally at Apple.  Don't forget that VARPG can generate Java.
