There may be a way, but it may involve you creating your own driver to get connected, which means you are still using JDBC. You don't have to use ODBC, but you would then need JDBC. Am I correct about that?

Check the list of drivers at the sun site:

I counted 5 different type 3 or 4 drivers for DB2.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
