This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I am working with an as400 database as far as I can tell the only jdbc driver in existence for that database is the IBM Toolbox for Java driver (com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver). There is one other driver (com.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver) but it's only for stuff that runs directly on the database os. This driver works fine, except when we started using hibernate with c3p0 for connection pooling/management, we get an error that says:
Thankfully the error is not fatal, but still I was wondering if anoyone knows of an alternative driver that would support this function and not cause this error.
Defining new SQL types? That sounds vaguely familiar in the iSeries context but I have never tried it. Anyway you might get better answers at the JTOpen site on SourceForge: http://jt400.sourceforge.net/
