Java has the potential to connect users with information regardless of its source.
Whether the data comes from the web, a database, an integrated file system, or
any other entity, Java can control it. Using Java with your AS/400 opens a new
world of flexibility and manageability. You can create applications that run from
just about anywhere, and still provide access to your AS/400 resources. You can
use the web, Java, and AS/400 together with ease. This list highlights only some of
the many advantages Java and AS/400 have to offer.
v Use the web, Java, and AS/400 together with servlets.
v Provide secure connections to AS/400.
v Create dynamic HTML with AS/400 Toolbox for Java HTML classes.
v Create Java applets.
v Call AS/400 programs and service programs.
v Perform administrative tasks with AS/400 Toolbox for Java utility classes.
v Create client/server database applications with the AS/400 Toolbox for Java
v Create native AS/400 database applications with the AS/400 Developer Kit for
Java JDBC drivers.
v Access legacy AS/400 data and applications.
v Create optimized Java code for specific AS/400 operations using the AS/400
Developer Kit for Java.
v Create client/server Java applications with the AS/400 Toolbox for Java.
v Easily create graphical user interfaces (GUIs) with the Graphical Toolbox, a
visual editing tool. (Uses the AS/400 Toolbox for Java)
Java in general
v Create graphical user interfaces (GUIs) to present and request data from users.
v Enjoy the benefits of Object-Oriented programming with Java. (i.e. code reuse,
v Use Java with other languages, such as C++ and RPG.
