Working with ODBC and JDBC

How can I create an ODBC connection to the iSeries, and create a statement with Java to insert to a file on the database?
ODBC is standard -- you use ODBC to the iSeries in the same way you use ODBC to connect to Oracle. The iSeries Navigator contains a good ODBC driver (it is also free).

JDBC is standard -- you use insert to iSeries from Java exactly as you would insert to Oracle. The Java Toolbox contains a solid JDBC driver for iSeries (it is also free).
