First you need to get the DB2 JDBC driver. This can be downloaded off the net, although I believe there's a jar that comes with DB2 install that you can also use.

Once you have this installed in both your build environment and run-time server environment, you just need to direct JDBC to use this driver. The rest is just learning the basics of JDBC.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
