as400 and jdbc port information

Posted on 2006-04-18

I'm trying to connect to an as400 via jdbc, I have no problems connecting via odbc and have been doing that for six months, but the odbc queries and execution is taking a long time so I am looking into if jdbc can offer some savings in time.

Does anyone know how to find the port to connect to from a remote computer?

    Not knowing what JDBC you're using, I'll suggest the "standard" drda port -- 446. That's where JDBC from the iSeries Java Toolbox (JTOpen in open source) should connect.

    But, AFAIK, there's no need to specify the port in that case. The driver already knows.
