I am trying to connect tomcat server to db2.
catch(ClassNotFoundException cnfexcep) {
System.out.println("class not found:"+cnfexcep);
return null;

try {
cnt = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc b2:mydb", "db2inst1", "password");

I have already put the db2jcc.jar in the common/lib and the web-inf/lib directory. I got the following error.

Class.forName(""); Unable to load T2 native library. Type 2 JDBC architecture is not yet supported by the IBM DB2 JDBC Universal Driver Architecture

I have also try with
and both end up with error: no suitable driver found

Anybody face this problem before? any help is appreciated. Thanks

sounds like you need a different driver. i'm not an expert here, but you could try going to this url:
and search for an IBM/DB2/Type4 driver and give it a shot.

Live, learn and do!
I agree. Here's the link:
