My code in Widows is:

In the ODBC screen I can connect to the data base, but in Java I am getting the exception "java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for sluggo".

Your help will be greatly appreciated,

Your jdbc url seems incorrect - it should be of the format - jdbc:db2://<host>[:<port>]/<database_name> Also, please ensure that the DB2 driver jar files are in the classpath.
