Basically I agree, Walden - but it is still more effort, methinks, than the other 2 options - because those are built on RPG skills most of us have - embedded SQL or procedure calls. I remember the wall I ran into when first doing Java!! If you've been doing Java, learning the JDBC is a snap - if you are starting from scratch - my assumption in my comment - not a snap at all.

3. JDBC - contract someone, as Rob did, or get down to learning a lot

Vern, I'm not sure that I agree here. It's really not that hard to learn
what you need of Java to use a JDBC driver. To implement a generic
solution, like yours, sure, but to do something simple, it's really not
that hard, and probably a good exercise in non-rpg programming. An
evening in Barnes and Noble w/a cup of coffee should give you what you
