Creating database connections requires users to provide specific information, including the database vendor, version, and URL information. In version 2.1, Data Studio Developer and Administrator introduced a simple and efficient way to manage database connections, allowing users to easily store and retrieve connection parameters for multiple databases. Since then, these products have been renamed to Optim and there have been additional usability improvements. Support for common connections has also been added to InfoSphere Data Architect and Optim Query Tuner. This article describes how to use common connections for greater efficiency in managing database connection information.
