AS/400 Java Introduction - AJV1


AS/400 Java Introduction is a self-paced, audio-cassette course specifically designed to bring experienced AS/400 programmers up to speed with the Java language. The course presumes no prior Java experience and guides the student through the process of downloading the JDK, configuring it on the PC, accessing the documentation, compiling and running Java programs, deploying applets on the AS/400 web server, installing the AS/400 Toolkit for Java, and accessing DB2/400 database files. The programming examples illustrate the important, basic, object- oriented programming concepts that present a hurdle to many experienced programmers. The course focuses on building practical GUI interfaces in applets for the purpose of accessing AS/400 database files
