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.
