DB2 JDBC Driver Versions and Downloads for Db2 z/OS.

Question & Answer


Question

Which JDBC driver (JCC) version corresponds with each DB2 for z/OS release?

Answer

The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ package includes two JDBC drivers:

  • db2jcc.jar - This driver is based on the JDBC 3 specification
  • db2jcc4.jar - This driver is based on the JDBC 4 or later specifications

1) The db2jcc.jar(Jcc3) driver is now deprecated. After version 3.72, which is delivered with DB2 Version 11.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Mod 1 Fix Pack 1, db2jcc.jar will include no new features. However, fixes will continue to be delivered.

2) Starting with Db2 Version 11.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows , the db2jcc.jar(Jcc3) driver will not be a part of Db2 release cycles. No fix or enahancement will be delivered for db2jcc.jar (Jcc3).
