JDBC - DB2 Native Driver - CCSID Problem

Hi all,

I'm trying to connect to a DB2 database using the db2_classes.jar (DB2 native driver) and I'm having CSSID problems.
I looked at all the posts about it but I couldn't find any solution.

Here's code
private AS400 server = null;
server = new AS400(IP_ADDRESS);
Driver driver = (Driver) Class.forName("com.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver").newInstance();

Here is the error message
Error setting driver and connection using JDBC native driver. The error message is as follows: CCSID value is not valid.

When I'm looking at the server.getCcsid() returned value I've got 297.
In my AS400 user profile (chgusrfprf), the CCSID is initialized to *SYSVAL. It looks ok for me

I managed to connect to this DB2 database with the com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver

Does someone have a clue of what's going on?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
