Has anyone used .NET with the AS400

Has anyone used .NET with the AS400, or know of any good jump start books? 
The only training course that i can find to see how to gain access to DB2 is 
a $495 casette based course.

This is the redbook: http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg246440.html. It 
requires v5r3.


You probably intend to program against the ISeries using the .NET framework 
on a thick client (eg. VB/C#) or from a web server (eg. ASP.NET)? The 
ISeries doesn't run the .NET framework natively so you will always need a 
Windows host (excepting the Linux Mono project of course).

Your access to the ISeries is via ADO.NET / OleDB and, if set correctly, it 
should result in almost identical program code only with the DB2 provider. 
So any introductory VB/C#/ASP.NET programming guide would work only with the 
DB2 provider.

That should be..

So any introductory VB/C#/ASP.NET programming guide would work only with the
DB2 provider instead of the usual SQL Server provider shown in most demos.

If you want say one record but every 3 seconds then you can either store them up for a few hours days or weeks & use FTP, snads or a tape. Or you can do it realtime & use DDMF to zap each record to the other machine as its written. I actually save the data I want sending this way into a file which is read & deleted by a daemon style of job so that if comms or the other machine fails only the daemon is affected. FTP has its upside in that the target is easily resettable for say a unix machine but SNADS has an easy to use & understand message sent to the sender & recipient to verify arrival of the data. -- Jonathan Bailey. You could install the No Charge SW "Object Connect" from the OS CDs. Once setup you can issue cmds line SAVRSTLIB and SAVRSTOBJ. Give these cmds the LIB or OBJ list and the target system. It then saves/transfers/restores to the target system all with just the 1 SAVRSTxxx cmd. tom wro...

Printing on AS400 via IBM AS400 Java Toolkit
Hello all, I'm working on a program that needs to send a print job to a printer connected to an AS/400. I've tried using the SpooledFileOutputStream and I've also tried using one of the SCS Writer classes. Neither solution is working. With the SpooledFileOutputStream I am at least able to create my print file, but when my program ends, the file is still not being printed. This program does not run on the AS400, it runs on a PC and connects to the AS400 via the toolkit classes. I know this part works as I am able to use the toolkit to access Data Queues, Files and Data Areas without a problem. Is there anyplace anyone can point me to see some examples of how to print a file using the AS400 Java Toolkit? Thanks in advance, Chuck Chuck, What printer data stream is used? or how was the printer data generated? I am wondering if the data stream being generated matches the data stream of the printer connected to the iSeries? What printer is attached to the iSeries and how is it configured?

Crystal Reports
Hi all Is anyone using Crystal Reports on the AS400 and if so, is it an end-user solution? Some of the tables that I want to access have an embedded period, is that a problem?

You can specify either SQL naming (uses dots, as in libname.filename) or system naming (slashes - libname/filename) in your ODBC setup. I don't think Crystal Reports would be a very good end-user solution. It's not impossible to learn, and for certain it would easier than teaching end users to do printer file DDS and RPG or COBOL programs, but it probably makes much more sense to let end users do what they do best - accounting, finance, marketing, etc. - ...

Microsoft uses IBM AS400's for development.
Not well known but Microsoft uses IBM AS400 machines with the Windows server card option to develop programs. This option is really a PC on a card but offers significant advantages over a stand alone pc in that it can support virtual sessions of Windows each of which can be rebooted as required without bringing down the other seesions or worse the rest of the machine. Microsoft is a huge IBM AS400 customer. Most people assume developers are using PC's sitting next to their work space.

AS400 to AS400 connection issues
Hi All, We have two AS400's at different locations, and were able to passthrough and send files between both no problems. Last week one of our AS400's was moved to another location, with an IP change. We have updated the IP addresses on the other AS400 and can passthrough fine....however we can no longer send files from the new location. When I look at the distribution queue I see the following status: RTY-FAIL Any idea's as to what may be causing this?

AS400 to AS400 data transfer
Hi I need to place a trigger on a set of tables on an AS400 to fire off whenever new records are added to these tables. This trigger program will then transfer the data to another AS400 across a WAN. This will allow us to transfer orders from one system to another. Can anyone tell me how I would achieve this. Normally if it had been a PC I would have used an ODBC type application but I am not sure what is available to me for AS400 to AS400 data transfer. I know that we can transfer a SAVF by FTP but this is not a route I would like to go down. I would prefer to populate tables directly if possible.

Even if there may be multiple way, I think the best would be using a remote journal, on the target system a journal entry exit program will be evoked at event time, so it can apply new records to the target tables, then it can fire a new event if necessary. -- Dr.Ugo Gagliardelli,Modena,ItalyCertifiedUindoscrasherA�ejoAlcoolInside Spaccamaroni andate a cagare/Spammers not welcome/Spammers v�o � merda Spamers iros a la mierda/Spamers allez vous faire foutre/Spammers loop schijten/Spammers macht Euch vom Acker/Spamerzy wypierdalac' ...

* use in As400
I have been using as400 for agbout a month at work and i cannot figure out what the * means..... I understand wild card astericks perfectly like dir *.txt. However what does it mean before a word... the best I can figure out is that it means any... as in *DEV, *LIB. But what about *YES, *NO, etc.... Is there a good explanation or is it just an "AS400 thing" as a co-worker told me.

It's just an OS/400 thing (actually it predates OS/400 back to CPF on the S/38) as a way to specify special values. For some things it could go either way. If a parameter only accepts a yes/no value, *YES/*NO or YES/NO or Y/N would work equally well. But for something like an object name, *ALL and ALL are _not_ the same thing. *ALL is all objects. ALL is an object called ALL. -- Ken http://www.kensims.net/ Opinions expressed are my own and do not necessarily represent the views of my employer or anyone in their right mind. Greg, The * in front of a parameter is a way to designate a reserved keyword without actually using up a real word. So, for example *YES is a reserved keyword but YES is not reserved. Many operating systems have reserved words that prohibit their use elsewhere. The AS/400 mitigates this by putting a * in front of the actual word to create a completel...

Why use an AS400?
I work with a company that really pushes the AS/400. My big question is why? What does the AS/400 offer that you can't get on a conventional server? I know our code is written in RPG and uses a SQL database. Any input would be apprecaited. Thank you for your help. There are 4 main reasons 1. Reliability - almost never goes down. 2. Security - no known virus. 3. Usually, a lower TCO (total cost of ownership) 4. Keep the investment in existing code (who else runs RPG?) Numbers 1 & 2 are why you see most casinos, banks, insurance companies, and the like running this system. Lee wrote: > I work with a company that really pushes the AS/400. My big question > is why?

AS400
Hello all! I'm having a problem with a project I'm working on and I'd like to ask for anyone's input that might be helpful. I'm building a rather large front-end application connecting to an AS400 for the back end database and I'm experiencing slow response times when executing sql statements. Some select statement response times are bad. Not all, but some. And there doesn't seem to be a consistent factor in any of the sql statements being so slow. Based on the application design, there's a group of components that get loaded dynamically which all access tables on the AS400. So it's very possible that the same sql statement will execute 40 or 50 times. My issue here is that for one execution of a select statement, it may take 50 - 200 milliseconds to execute. Cumulatively, assuming 50 executions of the statement, you're looking at a worse case scenario of 10 seconds (and it's even run longer, believe me). Even some INSERTs, UPDATEs and DELETEs are also slow. I'm using the iSeries Access v5r3 ole-db drivers. Keep in mind that these access times are slow even when there are no users on the box, so CPU usage is not an issue here. Although the slowdown becomes even more evident when the CPU is at 40% or higher. At this point the file sizes are very small (50-200 records in a file, and even less for lookup tables). The files are indexed according to the fields specified in the order of the where and order by clauses. ...

Buying used AS400
In 2001 I lost my job as an RPG/COBOL programmer of several years and ended up with jobs in the last 6 years that were not involved with AS400 at all. So now as a consultant of a few months have a client that needs data migrated off of their AS400 that had no PC's attached and have to work on getting a workstation set up with emulation card to download the data. As a result of this, I have decided to look into buying a used AS400 that I can used to download client data from tape as well as have RPG & QUERY400 compilers as a part of it. I think I need to look for a 170 or 270 but not sure what the difference between the 2 is? And I have found alot of places to buy the CPU with the OS but where do I find the other software to install on it. Also, has anyone had any experience in using the Nlynx 3xtwin PCI card to connect and download data using PCSupoort? Thanks MP 1st a home i5 (AS/400) is expensive to maintain. It's not just the hardware but the software licenses and hardware upkeep. I have had to barter for replacement features several time to keep my machine alive. 2nd to deal with client tapes you need compatible drives. Since there are so many formats this too can get expensive. I have had to FTP some very large files around because of not having the right tape drive. This may not be a problem if you have the kind of bandwidth I have. 3rd no one uses a PC emulation card anymore. Just setup your home network to work with iSeries Access via TC...

How to use AS400 journaling?
Hi, I am using V5R4. Is there any way to see a table journal in the form of SQL that was actually run on it? Can I see that at some date and some time, someone did an UPDATE, or INSERT or DELETE? Can I see the full SQL query that was executed (sort of like what is saved with interactive SQL sessions, but for all users)? The output of DSPJRN is very criptic, I'm looking for something simpler.

You'll have to start a database monitor job to see this but there's no way to limit it to a particular table. You can limit it by job and I think user (this option is new to V5R4) or you can start one for the entire system but you'll need lots of free DASD to store all of the information it produces and it will slow the system down. Matt SQL is not the only way to delete or insert rows. The program name and job attributed to the action defines the where, the user defines the who, and of course the date/time defines the when; what the identified program does, defines the ...

AS400 for Home Use
Hi all, I've been considering picking up a used as/400 and would appreciate any comments on the feasibility of purchasing a low end machine for development use at home. I have a background in rpg/cobol development but am unsure of hardware, processor and licensing issues involved. There seem to be many 170s and older interactive boxes with V4R4 available but can anyone comment on licensing, the availability of PDM, compilers and other LPPs in the used marketplace, etc? V4R4 with RPG, Cobol, etc would satisfy my initial requirements, but upgradeability to V5R1 with WDStudio tools would be an eventual concern. I would appreciate any advice on the minimum processor, memory requirements for any WAS development, webfacing etc for a single user in a non production environment. Thanks in advance. Allan Smallest current model is 800, but that's probably still a little too pricey for at home. You might be able to pick up a used 250. Either way, software has to be licensed from IBM. Another option is Baby/400, from California Software. I've never seen or used it, but they have a long history. (First product of theirs I heard of was Baby/36.) It runs on a PC, so hardware is inexpensive. It includes editor (like SEU), compilers, and database that mimics PF/LFs. If you only need to do some development and testing, this might be enough. But it is not OS/400. I'm pretty sure it won't have support for OS functions such as communications (SNA, TCP/IP), security, and...

What do matter are the CCSID of the job opening the file and then reading the data, and the CCSID of the columns of the file being opened. When the job is set to a proper CCSID, then whenever the data is also "tagged" properly with a CCSID [e.g. column of a table with a non-hex (non-65535) CCSID], the database will convert the dat...

how to use and as400 9401-150
hello i just go and as400 ibm server model 9401-150 without instructions. and i dont understand how do you connect to it. some people tell me i need and 100 serial to twinax cable in a ibm page that i dont recall says that i can connect using the MI port on the back. but i am not sure how can i connect to this ports. was thinging if any of you guys can point me to and manual for this server as in the ibm page i cannot find the instruction manual and what programs do i need to connect to it. and thanks for ur help guys. There are basically 3 ways to connect. 1. With twinax cable to a "dumb" 5250 terminal (if twinax card installed) 2. With a special serial cable to a PC with special software installed (console) 3. With ethernet to a PC with 5250 emulation installed. Prob the most common, but does not support "console" mode, and requires TCP services be running. Maybe the 150 has other options? I'm not very familiar with that model. The IBM infocenter web site might help. http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp Change the V5R4 to the version of the o/s you have. the as400 has in the back 2 cards installed 1 that have like 2 printer ports that are flat and on that have 1 of those connector and a serial conector. also it have 2 more serial conector one that says MI (management Interface) and another one that says UPS(uniterruptible power suppy) also idk what os this is running as this was a gift so its there a way i can ...

Two motives for the question: 1) whether to use it for my C++ / C# / .NET / Python (?) game project. It's a prototype, so in this context a "mostly working beta" is acceptable. I won't need "ready for prime time" for another year yet. 2) whether it's viable at this time to consult Pytho...

PowerPC extensions for IBM AS400
Looking for an explanation or documentation on the as400 specific extensions to the PowerPC instruction set. Pointers on the as400 are stored as 16 byte values. The LQ ( load quad word ) and STQ ( store quad word ) instructions are used to load and store those pointers. Here is PPC assembler code that loads a pointer from an EA into a register: LQ 24, 0x1e50(30), 6 SELRI 26, 25, 0, 41 LQ loads the 16 bytes stored at EA reg30 + 0x1e50 into reg24 and reg25.
