The IBM Toolbox for Java is a library of Java classes supporting the client/server and internet programming models to an iSeries or AS/400 server. The classes can be used by Java applets, servlets, and applications to easily access iSeries and AS/400 data and resources.

JT400 provides the ability to do...

  1. Database -- JDBC (SQL) and record-level access (DDM)
  2. Integrated File System
  3. Program calls
  4. Commands
  5. Data queues
  6. Data areas
  7. Print/spool resources
  8. Product and PTF information
  9. Jobs and Joblogs
  10. Messages, message queues, message files
  11. Users and groups
  12. User spaces
  13. System values
  14. System status
  15. System Debugger


There are two variations of the JT400 library.

  • JTOpen - Open Source. Full source code is available on SourceForge. Primarily maintained by IBM, but community contributions accepted by the development leads.
  • Toolbox for Java - Closed Source. This is a LPP that is directly supported by IBM.

NOTE: JTOpen contains all the function and fixes of the most recent Toolbox LPP release, plus additional enhancements.
