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.

Welcome to JavaRanch, Cory!

If you've a JDBC question, I suggest heading on over to the JDBC forum.

If you've a GUI question, I suggest heading on over to the Swing / JFC / AWT forum.

If you have a I/O question, I suggest heading on over to the I/O and Streams forum.

If you're just looking for general information, or have a nagging problem like a compiler error, then this is possibly the forum to ask about it in.

If you're looking for some resources on learning Java, here is a list of free on-line Java tutorials and books that I have found useful:
  • Sun's Java Tutorial
  • Introduction to Computer Science using Java by Bradley Kjell
  • Introduction to Programming Using Java by David J. Eck
  • Dick Baldwin's Java Programming Tutorials
  • Interactive Programming In Java by Lynn Andrea Stein
  • Bruce Eckel's Thinking In Java
  • JavaRanch's own Campfire Stories
  • Allen B. Downey's How To Think Like A Computer Scientist
  • For an easy introduction to JDBC, I'd recommend taking a look at the JDBC assignments of the JavaRanch Cattle Drive.
