Help on Using DB2 Cliient and DB Visualizer.

Hello All,
Do we need to install DB2 client for accessing DB2 database which resides on AIX server. For development, is this necessary. Can we develop and test a database connectivity in Java J2EE (App server - Web Sphere 6.0) without installing DB2 client in Windows environment. Like thin client.

DB2 Server is installed in AIX.
Using UDB (Are the adapters / packages different for this comparing to JDBC)

Please explain what needs to be done.

Regards.
Hari.

you don't have to install a client
assuming websphere comes with the db2 universal jdbc driver, you don't have to install the client when all you need is jdbc connectivity

Ok great. Are you referring to Type 4 driver?

We are using UDB.

Do you have a code snippet for the connectivity?

yes
i'm reffering to the type 4
it's not a type 4 driver but a type 4 connection
that is why the universal driver is called the universal driver - because it supports all connection types

you can find samples here
