So i have a utility that i use ( written in java) to setup my databases used by my application. It works like a charm on Oracle , Derby, MySQL and SQLServer. Basically it connects to the db drobs the two databases if they exist and re creates them. Problem is that i cant connect to DB2 without specifying a DB name. Ideally I do not want to have the user go into the DB2 control panel and create a dummy db just so my utility can have the db to connect to. what should the URL be to connect to DB2 as i discribed above?
