I am trying to connect to DB2 database from java and am getting the fllowing error.
I have set the required classpath. And here is the code that i am trying to use:
import java.sql.*;
public class SingleDBConnect
static SingleDBConnect dbConnection = null;
private Connection con = null;

private SingleDBConnect()
con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc b2:univ", "db2admin", "db2admin");
catch(ClassNotFoundException ex)
System.out.println("Exception in SingleDBConnect : " + ex);
catch(SQLException ex)
System.out.println("SQLException : " + ex);
public static Connection getConnection()
if( dbConnection == null )
dbConnection = new SingleDBConnect();
return dbConnection.con;
Please advise me on this.
