Recently we upgraded our DB2 from V7.2 to V8.1.
When we upgrade DB2, java also upgraded to V1.3.1 from V1.1.8.

Is it possible? I was thinking of putting the old sqllib path in CLASSPATH. But i am not sure, how to acheive this??
Java should be backwards compatible, i.e., the programs you've compiled with 1.1.8 should run in a JVM 1.3. To avoid "bad surprises", you should define a "Test Suite" for your Java Stored Procedures (with JUnit, for example), so that you can check your system everytime you change something.
