I am doing db2 everyplace  parallel migration.  It uses jdbc (I am new to how jdbc drivers work).
This is a clean database and I am migrating the information for one machine to another.  The xml script is adding the data.

I run the xml script with (jdbc:db2:my400)

results:  could not connect to source database jdbc:db2:my400.

How does jdbc know what ipaddress to go to?

Hi cw50,

Several things have to work together for this type of connection to succeed.

The xml describes the connection as jdbc:db2:my400.  It's a jdbc connection to a db2 database named my400.

The DB2 server must have a database named my400 (probably the alias name), accept TCP/IP connections, and discovery must be turned on.  You can check discovery by entering:

  db2 get dbm cfg

at the command line.  The check for these three lines:

 TCP/IP Service name                          (SVCENAME) = db2c_DB2
 Discovery mode                               (DISCOVER) = SEARCH
 Discover server instance                (DISCOVER_INST) = ENABLE

Also do a:

  db2 list database directory.  my400 MUST be one of the listed databases.

Do I have to have a catalog node and database to run jdbc?

Does jdbc use dns?  If so can I put the ipaddress and my400 name in the host file?

you don't have to catalog
you can connect by using a type 4 connection string
this way the universal driver will connect to a remote db2 without the need to catalog it
