    I am looking for a free graphical DB2 client that runs on OS X platform. IBM Data Studio is only available on Windows and Linux. Any advice?

    Does the client have a GUI tool included? If so, can you please provide me with more information about where to download it from and how to install on Mac?

    I do not own a Mac but I trust that one of these "google-hits" can help you. Once you've installed express-c, you've got a working client to connect to your other db2 servers and db2cc should work as well. Have fun.

    Thanks for your reply. I'm afraid those only offer you a command line client. I'm looking for a GUI client.

    You saw "db2cc" but you do not know what it means?
    Well, That's the graphical client.
