I have a web server (WebLogic) running on Solaris machine. I want to connect to OS/390 DB2 instance via JDBC. I trialed a couple of Type 4 JDBC drivers and had no problems. Now, I'm told I'm supposed to use IBM's DB2 Connect product for my JDBC solution. This is a Type 2/3 driver.

Can anyone offer any tips? Exactly what needs to be installed on my sun machine? (The type 4 drivers only needed a jar file) - but type 2/3 require client libs.

Any help would be appreciated!
