Description

IBM DB2 Connect V9.5 provides fast and robust connectivity to IBM DB2 databases deployed on either System z or System i. DB2 Connect has a number of DB2 Connect server products to best meet company's needs. A DB2 Connect server is a connectivity server that concentrates and manages connections from multiple desktop clients and Web applications to DB2 servers running on System z or System i servers. IBM's DB2 for System i, DB2 for System z, and DB2 for VSE and VM databases continue to be the systems of choice for managing most critical data for the world's largest organizations. While System z and System i databases manage the data, there is a great demand to integrate this data with applications running on Linux, UNIX, and Windows workstations.

DB2 Connect servers enable local and remote client applications to create, update, control, and manage DB2 databases and host systems using:

  • Structured Query Language (SQL)
  • DB2 APIs
  • Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)
  • Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)
  • SQLJ (embedded SQL for Java)
  • DB2 call level interface (CLI)
  • Ruby on Rails
  • PHP
  • Perl

Application development enhancements

DB2 Connect V9.5 provides numerous enhancements that simplify database application development. Enhancements include a new productivity tool solution for developers called IBM Data Studio. IBM Data Studio allows developers and DBAs to design, develop, deploy, and manage their DB2 data servers from a cohesive integrated solution. Enhancements to the IBM Database Add-Ins for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 simplify access to DB2 data and increase developer productivity. New support for Ruby on Rails framework, and enhanced JDBC and SQLJ support is provided. DB2 Connect V9.5 also has a unified debugger and many other features that allow you to reduce development time.

PHP extensions have been integrated into DB2 installation (Linux, AIX®, and Windows)


    The Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) extensions are now installed with the IBM Data Server Client (formerly, the DB2 Client).

Ruby on Rails framework support has been integrated into DB2 installation (Linux, AIX, and Windows)


    Rapid development and deployment of DB2 Web applications have been enabled and enhanced for Ruby and Ruby on Rails applications.

Perl driver supports pureXML and multibyte characters


    The Perl driver has been enhanced by adding two new significant features: pureXML support and multibyte locale support. These new features allow more direct access to the data through the DB2 Perl driver.

IBM Database Add-Ins for Visual Studio 2005 enhancements


    IBM Database Add-Ins for Visual Studio 2005, which provides tools for rapid application development, database schema development, and debugging, offers even better support in V9.5.
    Enhancements:
    • The Add-Ins now enables you to work with any combination of DB2, Informix™ Dynamic Server (IDS), Unidata™, or UniVerse® products.
    • The new IBM Function Designer provides an easier way to work with functions.
    • When you define a data connection to a DB2 server, you can filter database tables based on table types.
    • You can now use the Add-Ins to create Web services that expose database operations (SQL SELECT and DML statements, XQuery expressions, or calls to stored procedures) to client applications. You can also use the add-ins to deploy Web services to or not to deploy Web services from a Web server.
    • XML tooling has also been enhanced.

Global variables improve data sharing between SQL statements


    V9.5 introduces the concept of global variables, which are named memory variables that you can access and modify through SQL statements. Global variables enable you to share data between different SQL statements running in the same session (or connection) without the need for application logic to support this data transfer.

Array support enhances application portability


    V9.5 supports the ARRAY collection data type. Arrays are transient values that you can manipulate in stored procedures and applications but cannot store in tables. This feature makes it easier to port applications and stored procedures from other database vendors that already support arrays.

Decimal floating-point data type improves the accuracy and performance of decimal data


    V9.5 introduces DECFLOAT, a decimal floating-point data type that is useful in business applications (for example, financial applications) that deal with exact decimal values.

JDBC and SQLJ support enhancements


    In V9.5, two versions of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ are available: one that supports functions in the JDBC 3.1 and earlier specifications, and one that supports functions in the JDBC 4.0 and earlier specifications.

IBM Data Server Provider for .NET enhancements


    The IBM Data Server Provider for .NET now supports IBM Informix Dynamic Server (IDS), IBM UniData, and IBM UniVerse data servers along with DB2 data servers. This enables you to use the same data server provider for any combination of DB2, Informix, UniData, or UniVerse products in the same .NET application.

    • Perl driver support for pureXML and multibyte characters
    • IBM Database Add-Inds for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 enhancements
    • Decimal floating-point data type support allowing improved accuracy and performance of decimal data

Federation enhancements


    Federation support enhancements include support for the XML data type, application savepoints, and WITH HOLD cursors. Security has also been improved with support for Trusted Context with DB2 V9.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, and a new C-based interface to external user mapping repositories.

New data server client product simplifies deployment for Windows environment


    The new IBM Data Server Driver for ODBC, CLI, and .NET client makes it easier to provide access to DB2 servers from Windows-based applications that use the ODBC driver, CLI driver, OLE DB driver, or IBM Data Server Provider for .NET.
    This client, which has a small footprint, is designed to be redistributed by independent software vendors (ISVs) and to be used for application distribution in mass deployment scenarios typical of large enterprises.
    Driver registration and configuration are handled automatically during installation. Removal of the registration is handled automatically during uninstall.

Installation, migration, and fix pack considerations


    With new features and enhancements such as coexistence of multiple DB2 Connect versions and fix packs on Windows, manual installation enhancements, and support for concurrent copies of DB2 Connect servers on Linux and UNIX, DB2 Connect V9.5 allows your IT staff to spend more time supporting business goals instead of installing and configuring database systems.

DB2 Connect can be installed using a non-administrator user ID (Windows)


    Anyone who does not want to use an administrator ID when installing DB2 Connect on Windows, now has another option. You can use the Windows operating system elevated privileges feature to perform the installation with a Windows Power User ID or a Restricted User ID.

Installation and coexistence of multiple DB2 Connect versions and fix packs


    DB2 V9.5 on Windows introduces the ability to install multiple DB2 Connect servers and client copies on the same system. Each DB2 Connect installation copy can either be at the same level or at a different level of DB2 Connect. On Linux and UNIX, this support does not require the use of an alternate fix pack.
    When installing DB2 Connect on a machine that already has a DB2 product copy installed, you can install a new DB2 copy or work with and update an existing DB2 copy.

Manageability enhancements

In this section, the following products are referred to collectively as DB2 for z/OS:

  • DB2 UDB for z/OS, V8
  • DB2 UDB for OS/390® and z/OS, V7
  • DB2 for z/OS

Automated evaluation of object maintenance policies by the DB2 UDB for z/OS health monitor

The Control Center's Create and Change Object Maintenance Policy wizards allow you to automate the evaluation of object maintenance policies by the DB2 for z/OS health monitor. On the z/OS system, a DB2 for z/OS health monitor is started as a task for each DB2 subsystem to be monitored.

EXEC SQL utility support for loading data into DB2 for z/OS tables

  • DB2 UDB for z/OS, V8
  • DB2 UDB for OS/390 and z/OS, V7

The Control Center's Load Table and Load on Table Space notebooks support the INCURSOR option of the LOAD utility. The Control Center uses the EXEC SQL utility control statement to declare a cursor, and the result table from the declared cursor is used as input to the LOAD utility.

V9 incompatibilities with previous releases

  • Type 3 JDBC support is discontinued.
  • Vendor load API (sqluvtld) is discontinued.
  • VSE/VM objects are no longer supported in the DB2 Control Center.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition is capable as of December 14, 2007, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it. A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), containing details on the products accessibility compliance, can be requested at

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement (PoE). It is your responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Product positioning

DB2 Connect Personal Edition

DB2 Connect Personal Edition provides the API drivers and connectivity infrastructure to enable direct connectivity from Windows and Linux desktop applications to System z and System i database servers. This product is specifically designed and licensed for enabling two-tier client/server applications running on individual workstations and, as such, is not appropriate for use on servers.

Unlike server-based products (DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition, Application Server Edition, and Unlimited Edition), DB2 Connect Personal Edition does not provide the advanced functions such as Mobility on Demand, federated database support, server-based monitoring or connection concentrator, and associated load-balancing and failover support.

DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition

DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition is a combination of DB2 Connect server and Data Server Client software designed to address the needs of organizations that require robust connectivity from a variety of desktop systems to System z and System i database servers. Data Server Client software is deployed on desktop systems and provides API drivers that connect client/server applications running on these desktop systems to a DB2 Connect server. Designed to provide connectivity for client/server applications in large-scale, demanding environments, DB2 Connect server provides connection pooling and connection concentrator functions to maximize application availability, while minimizing System z and System i resources.

License charges for DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition are based on the number of users of the product. Two types of licensing users are provided, concurrent users and authorized users, and they are each sold in packs of 25 users. The concurrent user licensing model addresses the needs of two-tier client/server applications. The authorized user licensing model can be applied to any environment provided the identity of each user is well known. However, since charges for the DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition are based on the number of users and because determining the number of actual users in mobile and Web-based applications is very difficult or even impossible, DB2 Connect Application Server Edition and DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition are preferred licensing options for such environments.

DB2 Connect Application Server Edition

DB2 Connect Application Server Edition is identical to the DB2 Connect Enterprise Server in its technology. Just like the DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition, it is designed for large-scale, demanding environments. However, its licensing terms and conditions are meant to address specific needs of multitier client/server applications as well as applications that utilize Web technologies. DB2 Connect Application Server Edition license charges are based on the size or the number of processors available to the application servers where the application is running. License charges are not affected by the number of users of the application, the size of the DB2 Connect server itself, or the size of the System z or System i database server.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System z

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition is ideal for organizations with extensive usage of DB2 Connect, especially where multiple applications are involved. This product provides program code of the DB2 Connect Personal Edition as well as program code identical to the DB2 Connect Application Server Edition for unlimited deployment throughout an organization.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition license fees are based on the size of the DB2 System z server (measured in MSUs) and are not affected by either the number of processors available to the DB2 Connect servers or the number of processors available to application servers where the application is running. This makes DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition an ideal choice for organizations where multiple applications are utilizing DB2 Connect, or organizations with a mix of two-tier, multitier client/server, Web-based, and mobile applications.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System i

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition is ideal for organizations with extensive usage of DB2 Connect, especially where multiple applications are involved. This product provides program code of the DB2 Connect Personal Edition as well as program code identical to the DB2 Connect Application Server Edition for unlimited deployment throughout an organization. DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System i license fees are based on the number of processors allocated to the data source running on i5/OS or OS/400® operating systems. Charges for the program are not based on the processors attached or available to the DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System i itself. Unlimited users are permitted. This makes DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System i an ideal choice for organizations where multiple applications are utilizing DB2 Connect or organizations with a mix of two-tier, multitier client/server, Web-based, and mobile applications.

Security, auditability, and control

DB2 Connect Personal Edition, DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition, DB2 Connect Application Server Edition, DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System z, and DB2 Unlimited Edition for System i use security and auditability features to encrypt user IDs, passwords, and the data that flows between the client application and the backend database server. This ensures that only valid users are permitted access to the database servers. DB2 Connect interfaces with Microsoft™ Active Directory and Kerberos security mechanisms.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a Value Unit table. You must obtain a PoE for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processor cores require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the Value Unit table on the following Web site

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of Value Units based on all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Concurrent user

A concurrent user is one and only one individual within or outside your enterprise. The number of PoEs required is for the highest number of users simultaneously accessing the program or any program components either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user. Concurrent users are counted at the DB2 Connect Server and the total number of concurrent users for each DB2 Connect server are not aggregated with other DB2 Connect Servers. Concurrent users are purchased in packs of 25 and each DB2 Connect Server total number of concurrent users are licensed separately.

Authorized user

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside your enterprise. A PoE must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under an authorized user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user. Authorized users are purchased in packs of 25. Authorized users are counted at the DB2 Host or the DB2 Host Sysplex and each DB2 Host or Sysplex total number of authorized users are licensed separately.

Client device

A client device is a computing device that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, notebook computers, desktop computers, desk side computers, technical workstations, appliances, automated teller machines, point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and kiosks.

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Warranty: IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Guide for further information at

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
