"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The versions in links are different but you can use the correct jdbc jar files and connect

Did you try the documentation ->

There is a section on connection to DB2 and what you need to be able to connect.

Use Sql developer to connect to your Oracle DB
Create database link on Oracle DB to connect to DB2
Then when running queries on Sql developer, you can also connect to DB2
Tomas Helgi JohannssonCommented:

Are talking about DB2 on z/OS or DB2 on zLinux ?
Only DB2 on LUW (zLinux if you are connecting to Mainframe) have this version number that
you are mentioning.
To connect to DB2 on z/OS you will have to have a specific license obtained from IBM.
