Location of the db2jcc_license_cisuz.jar file

Question & Answer


Question

The db2jcc_license_cisuz.jar file has been removed from certain products in client installations of DB2 Universal Database (DB2 UDB) Version 8.2 (equivalent to DB2 UDB Version 8.1 FixPak 7) and later FixPaks.

Cause

In order to connect to DB2 on z/OS®, iSeries™ or VM/VSE, the DB2 Universal JDBC Driver (which includes T4 + T2 connectivity) requires the license file "db2jcc_license_cisuz.jar". The following link will bring you to a list of license files and the products that include them (see Table 86):

Answer

You must purchase a DB2 Connect product to connect to a DB2 host server on z/OS, iSeries, VM or VSE through the DB2 Universal JDBC / SQLJ T2 / T4 driver.

You don't need to install DB2 Connect to use the driver to connect to a host database. If you purchase DB2 Connect, you may copy the T4 driver and the license file from DB2 Connect onto your production or development system. A DB2 Connect license is required for each machine.
