I am very new to Java and am tring to access an ISeries box using JDBC. I am self taught on RPG, CL, and VB (in M$ Excel, I use ODBC all the time), but I have no other languages to draw on or formal training. I have searched the internet to find how to add the driver I need, but am too dense to figure it out. I would like to create a GUI program to connect to our company database and edit a file. Any recommendations on sites to visit, or any basic pointers would be helpful.
