Microsoft Foxpro on the iSeries

I have a client that wants to know if an application I am developing for them using Microsoft Foxpro will run on his iSeries system. He already has an application that keeps track of his inventory on the iSeries. Without knowing the name of that software I want to know if its database is ODBC compliant.
NO! Foxpro CAN'T execute on the iSeries. He could automate a file transfer to Windows and then run Foxpro OR use Java, which can access data and call programs on both systems simultaneously.
