    Unanswered: Type -4 JDBC Driver for DB2 V7 on Mainframe

    Hi All,
    Has anyone tried connecting to a DB2 V7 on Mainframe using a Type -4 Java JDBC driver (With Universal driver that comes along with DB2 V8 or anyother commercial driver in market).

    First of all Is this possible to achieve Type -4 Connectivity in DB2 V7? If yes what coluld be the possible disadvantages here.

    To make it possible,Do we need to do any configurations on the mainframe side?

    Thanks in Advance

    Yes, we did. It works but we needed a lot of maintenance on DB2 for zOS. It's used for our WebApplication Servers (WAS). And you have to configue the USS part very well, using RRSattachment. So it's a lot fun.
