Okay, I'm a little confused as to why you want an ODBC driver for DB2, when DB2 ships with two very sexy drivers, the .net driver and the .app driver. Both of these drivers are in the db2java.zip file, and if you have db2java.zip on your Java classpath, you can connect very easily to db2.
Using the JDBC-ODBC bridge with DB2 combines all of the worst features of db2 with the worst features of odbc. Not a way that I would go.
Is your main concern with just connecting to db2 from a Java application? If it is, throw away everything you know about odbc, and do it with JDBC.
Expand on what you are trying to accomplish,and maybe I can help you out more.
This sounds like a reply to something; maybe another thread here in "Other Java Products" which was moved to JDBC several days ago and so is now closed. In any case, I'm going to move this to JDBC and hope somebody over there knows what it's referring to.
