Ihave DB2 8.2 installed on remote Database Server and have jdbc cliet jars on a client machine. In this scenario can I access/query remote DB2 from client jars?

You can use the db2 net client driver to access the database remotely, although I rarely see that in production.

Usually, the db2 client application is installed on the remote machine. I think it used to be called db2connect, but it's been rebranded. When that's installed, you connect locally to db2connect, as though it were a local database. Then, db2connect takes care of the network communication in a reliable manner that maintains all XA transaction semantics.

So if we can use Remote DB having client jars on local machine , then what will the connection URL?I mean where do we need to mention the Remote DB host name in the Connection URL String in JDBC program?
