The native db2 driver isn't acually in jt400Native.jar but in the
db2_classes.jar. The driver name is different and so is the url syntax.
Use it like this, only replace s109dfda with your system name (not your
host name).

dbConnection = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:db2:s109dfda");

If I remember correctly db2_classes.jar doesn't need added to your
classpath as it's in the java ext directory and available already.

If you're not doing anything else but jdbc in your program, then you
don't need to use the jt400 jars at all. If you are doing anything else
(like manipulating spooled files, calling programs, etc, then use the

Hello Luis,

If I understand your problem, what you need to use are the
classes in the jt400Native.jar. You will find this jar in
\QIBM\ProdData\OS400\jt400\lib\jt400Native.jar I believe. It
contains the classes to connect to the db from 'within' the 400.
HTH. Good luck.
