IBM PureData System for Analytics, Version 7.1

JDBC driver installation for UNIX/Linux on a supported platform

The IBM® Netezza® appliance client tools installation procedure copies the Java™ jar file that contains the JDBC driver into the nz/lib directory (usually /usr/local/nz/lib). This file is named nzjdbc3.jar. To configure JDBC on a Linux client system, run an export command to include an appropriate entry in your CLASSPATH environment variable.

For help on options, run the following command: -java -jar nzjdbc3.jar -help

Before you use JDBC, verify that your system has Java installed (JRE Release 1.5 or later, or JRE 1.7 or later if your Netezza host runs release or later and uses SP 800-131a cryptography). For more information, go to where you can test your system for Java software support and download the latest version for your system.

Run the following command to modify your CLASSPATH environment variable to include the location of the Netezza JDBC Version 3.0 driver:
export CLASSPATH=.:/usr/local/nz/lib/nzjdbc3.jar

The previous export commands changes the environment for the current session only. After you verify that your environment modification works correctly, you can edit your login script to set the environment variable when users log in.
