JAVA for dummies

I have had IDMS Server installed for years using ODBC against CA-IDMS with standard MS tools. The JDBC stuff is also installed and, in principle, I am resonsible for it. However nobody has ever actually tried to use it till now.

My bluff has been called and a programmer has asked me a question. As a strictly mainframe Assembler dinosaur, I usually rely on my children to answer any Windows questions.

I have tried reading the manual but it does not use any words or concepts which I recognise although it is meant to be in English.

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class ca.idms.qcli.JniQcli
at ca.idms.qcli.Qcli.<init>(
at ca.idms.jdbc.IdmsJdbcDriver.connect(
at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(

Has anybody any idea what I am looking at here?
