DB2 without "DB2 Connect" client?

Can I connect to a DB2 database without the DB2 client (DB2 Connect) with one of the db connection options that ships with Delphi 7 Enterprise?

Yes, dbExpress also requires the DB2 client. And I'm pretty sure any solution will require the client.

To my knowledge, you need the DB2 UDB Client installed so that for example BDE can access the database.
Try getting it at http://www-306.ibm.com/software/data/db2/udb/support/downloadv8.html#WIN-32 (clients runtime)
