Someone can tell me which JDBC drivers and versions are installed by default on WAS4.0?
If I need a JDBC driver not installed, does I have to include it in my ear, as an utility jar?
Thanks in advance

No idea if you can specify third party DB drivers if WebSphere is not configured to use them.
Default Drivers are:
The name of the Java data source class provided by the database vendor.
* COM.ibm.db2.jdbc.DB2ConnectionPoolDataSource (one phase commit protocol)
* COM.ibm.db2.jdbc.DB2XADataSource (two phase commit protocol)
DB2 on iSeries - toolbox driver
* com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCConnectionPoolDataSource (one phase commit protocol)
* com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCXADataSource (two phase commit protocol)
DB2 on iSeries - native driver
* com.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2StdConnectionPoolDataSource (one phase commit protocol)
* com.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2StdXADataSource (two phase commit protocol)
* oracle.jdbc.pool.OracleConnectionPoolDataSource (one phase commit protocol)
* oracle.jdbc.xa.client.OracleXADataSource (two phase commit protocol)
* com.sybase.jdbc2.jdbc.SybConnectionPoolDataSource (one phase commit protocol)
* com.sybase.jdbc2.jdbc.SybXADataSource (two phase commit protocol)
* com.merant.sequelink.jdbcx.datasource.SequeLinkDataSource (one and two phase commit protocol)
* com.informix.jdbcx.IfxConnection PoolDataSource (one phase commit protocol)
* com.informix.jdbcx.IfxXADataSource (two phase commit protocol)
InstantDB (NOT supported as an administrative database)
* com.ibm.ejs.cm.portability.IDBConnectionPoolDataSource (one phase commit protocol)
Name Property name in the Java-based administrative console Property name in the Web-based administrative console Property name in the application client resource configuration tool

Thanks a lot for your response.
The following url http://www-3.ibm.com/software/webservers/appserv/doc/v40/prereqs/ae_v403.htm#Footnotes gives you Third Party JDBC Drivers Managers supported by WAS4.0
In your response, do you mean that the Driver Manager class has a name of a datasource class?
Besides, for you, "Default drivers" are drivers already installed?

JDBC drivers are installed through resources/jdbc drivers dialog in the WebSphere Console. Applications use the specified jndi name to access a database which is configured to use the appropriate driver.
Third party drivers cannot be installed unless they are supported.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
