I have a struts/tomcat web app that has some functionality that my back end AS400 need to use

1)I do not want to reinvent a standalone version of the functioality.

2)Is it possible and what technologies would be required to connect tomcat to watch for commands on from an AS400 dataqueue.

3)Are there any examples. (my google search did not show any)

4)I have been prohibited from HTML communication between the systems.




Thanks for any leads, Not really sure where to start.

Every AS/400 has a big jar file in its java lib called JT400. Copy that jar to your tomcat and all of the AS400 toolbox classes will be available to you. For information on the classes in the toolbox, goto the as400 information center at:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r3/ic2924/index.htm

From the main menu select:

programming,
java,
IBM Toolbox for Java,
classes,
access classes,
data queue
