I am an newbie all-rounder and urgently require your help.
I have just installed WebSphere V5 Network Deployment and Appl Server on same linux machine.
Using web-based admin, I have set up datasource following some doc - DB2 JDBC Provider(XA) as JDBC Provider.
Now, in setting DB2_JDBC_DRIVER_PATH variable,
I have no idea what driver to use and where to put it. I have DB2 7.2 installed in remote machine and it seems that there are 2 drivers to select from: db_home/java/ and db_home/java12/
Which one to use and do I need to copy the one across to the machine where WebSphere is installed ?
I have no general idea of how to access remote database from websphere...
