Can we connect to As400 screens through Java?
Can you please expand on what you mean by that?

If you mean "is there a terminal emulator for the As400 written in Java?" then have a look at http://tn5250j.sourceforge.net/

In order to get these libraries, you need to purchase the full Personal Communications or Host Access emulation product:
