Hi Nathan, thank you for the for tips. I did make some progress.


1. No, we currently do not serve web pages from our i server.

2. Change made to default Apache HTTP server: Renamed default index.html to _ORIGINAL_index.html

3. Created new index.html like this ...

<TITLE>AS/400 Display Session</TITLE>
<H2>AS/400 Display Session</H2>

CODEBASE = "/java/tn5250j"
CODE = "org.tn5250j.My5250App.class"
NAME = "tn5250j - Java Telnet 5250 Client "
ALT = "tn5250j cannot start. Browser may not support Java."
WIDTH = 600
HEIGHT = 400
ALIGN = top
ARCHIVE = "tn5250j.jar"
<PARAM NAME ="host" VALUE= "">
<PARAM NAME ="-e" VALUE= " ">


4. Added the tn5250j directories (ftp, java, www) to /www/apachedft/htdocs
htdocs ---+--- ftp ---+
+--- java ---+
| |
| +--- tn5250j
+--- www ---+
+--- images

5. Started the HTTP server APACHEDFT

6. Now When I browse to the server at port 80 I get the following error:
Exception: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.tn5250j.My5250App.class

From: Bob Schwartz
Does anyone have an example for V5R4 that I could use?

Are you already using your IBM i server to serve web pages? If so, I think that you can place the tn5250j.jar and TN5250JDefault.props files in an IFS directory that is accessible from your Apache server, and reference them from an HTML page.

I think this page will bring up TN5250J on my server, for example:


You may be prompted to download or upgrade your Java plugin. You may need to resize your browser window to have the TN5250J client fill the screen.

I don't know what to suggest without knowing more about what your current set-up is.
