I have a question regarding WAS and DB2 connectivity.
I have WAS 5.1 installed on Linux box. I have DB2 Universal installed on another windows box. When I try to create DB2 JDBC provider on WAS, it asks me to provide classpath for db2java.zip. Because the linux box having WAS doesn't have DB2 client, it does not have sqllib directory and any of the db2 files including db2java.zip. These files are present on windows box with DB2 on it.

Do those files have to be available locally in order to be able to create JDBC Provider and ultimately the datasource? Can I just copy them from DB2 machine? Or do I need to install DB2 Client on Linux box to establish connectivity between WAS and DB2 database?

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
