Jdbc 2 Driver for DB2/UDB does not work

The JDBC 2 Driver for DB2/UDB does not work..
I am using DB2 Client 7 fixpack 3..
The code is as below :
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:db2:Z1U2", "user", "pwd");
Statement st = conn.createStatement(ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, ResultSet.CONCUR_READ_ONLY);
//Statement st = conn.createStatement();
ResultSet rs = st.executeQuery("select * from table");
while ( {
System.out.println(rs.getString(1) + " - " + rs.getString(2));
The records are not retrieved, if the the scroll type and the concurrency are mentioned while creating the statement
Statement st = conn.createStatement(ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, ResultSet.CONCUR_READ_ONLY);
But are retrieved if no parameters are mentioned while creating the statement..
Statement st = conn.createStatement();
No exceptions are thrown... returns false in the first case, true in the second case
Can anyone help me out....

does your driver documentation state whether they fully implement these features? Some drivers don't implement scrollable resultsets , but don't give you compiler/run time errors, just ignore the statement.
