Db2 JDBC drivers

About this task

For Db2 install the appropriate Db2 JDBC Type 4 driver and any correlating patches. Go to IBM Support Portal for supported version information.

You can obtain the db2jcc4.jar from the IBM web site. After you obtain the driver, record the absolute path to its location on your system. You must supply this absolute path during installation.


The type-4 driver does not require a separate Java listener running on the database server. Instead, connect directly to the Db2 port.
