Hi,
I want to setup a DB2 datasource for my WebSphere Studio Appl Development Client's (V4.0) test Application Server. The DB2 database I want to access is on an AS400 (V5R1). My guess is that I do this on the Server Perspective in the Server Configuration box. I double click on WebSphere Admin Domain under Server Configurations and then select the data sources tab.
On the data sources panel it has three areas: the JDBC Driver List, the Data Source defined in the JDBC driver, and the Resource Properties defined in the data source.
In the JDBC Driver List area I have and entry:
----------------------------------------------
Name: AS400JDBCDriver(com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCConnectionPoolDataSource)
When I edit this entry I have:
------------------------------
Name: AS400JDBCDriver
Desc: <Blank>
Implementation Class Name: com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCConnectionPoolDataSource
URL prefix: jdbc b2
Class path: c:/WSADClassPathStuff/jt400.jar
I downloaded this jt400.jar file from the AS400's QIBM/ProdData/HTTP/Public/jt400/lib directory and put it in this WSADClassPathStuff local directory.
When I select the "Data Source defined in the JDBC driver" entry, I have:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: AS400DataSource
JNDI name: jdbc/cmas400
Desc: <blank>
Category:<blank>
Database name: cmas400/cmas400 (which is the system name followed by the database name)
Default user Id & Password: I have a valid userid & password entered
The rest of the entries are at their default values.
My Servlet has:
---------------
Connection connection = null;
try {
Properties parms = new Properties();
parms.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,"com.ibm.websphere.naming.WsnInitialContextFactory");
Context context = new InitialContext(parms);
DataSource ds = (DataSource) context.lookup("jdbc/cmas400");
connection = ds.getConnection();
} catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println(" Servlet ERROR: " + e.getMessage());
}
Finally, also in my WebSphere Test server Environment confirguration I have this class path entry:
C:/WSADClassPathStuff/jt400.jar
This was added with the "Add External Jar's" button.
When I start the server I see:

When my servlet runs and it executes the "connection = ds.getConnection();" statement I get the message:

Which I understand is not a problem message and can be ignored. However, at this point my servlet is locks up and doesn't continue with the next statements. If I try to stop the server I get a pop up window that says "WebSphere v4.0 test environment is not responding. Do you want to terminate the server?" At this point the new messages on the console are:

I hope someone can help me resolve this probem. Email me if you need addition information.

I added the serverName property to the datasource resource area and it now appears to work ok.

God bless you for this post! I was having this exact problem, it was killing me. The docs are so lacking. Thanks again.

Adding more colors :

Change the code to
-------------------
ConnectionPoolDataSource ds = (ConnectionPoolDataSource) context.lookup(("jdbc/cmas400");

connection = ds.getPooledConnection().getConnection();
-------------------

Best's,
NK
