How would I select data from a specific member in a file using SQL with Java and JDBC?
To my knowledge, the JDBC and SQL interfaces do not have properties or entity relationships that would indicate a specific member to use on an SQL request from Java. If there is a way, I haven't found it yet. I would use the Java Toolbox and serialize a request for a call to override the physical file to a specific member. Since the JDBC request might create a separate thread, it might not work. That would leave you with a serial method to access AS/400 data by a specific member and making JNI calls to process your SQL requests. If you do find a way, please let us know.
