To my knowledge, you need the DB2 UDB Client installed so that for example BDE can access the database.
Try getting it at (clients runtime)

What about dbExpress? Does that require the DB2 client?

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