Using JDBC 2.0 driver for default datasource

Hi experts,

Can I use JDBC 2.0 driver for the default datasource? It seems that after installation of WAS640 JAVA, the default datasource to default java schema is using 1.x JDBC driver. Since I cannot change the JDBC driver for this default datasource and if I want to use JDBC 2.0 feature, it seems that the only way is to create a new datasource other than the default one.

If above is true, will I suffer any built-in features such as using "Open SQL" engine which is only provided by default datasource?

Any pointer and comments is appreciated. Thanks.

Best regards,

Ken

    Hi Ken,

    First of all, which database do you use? Is it MaxDB (the driver for MaxDB is JDBC 1.x compliant)?

    You cannot edit the definition of the default datasource because it is used by the system. What you can do is register a new datasource with the relevant JDBC 2.0 driver (if available for the relevant database).

    As for Open SQL, you can choose not to use it by setting the SQL Engine option to "Native SQL" in the Additional tab of the datasource definition screen in Visual Administrator; thereby, you will be able to use specific features of the database that are not supported by Open SQL for portability reasons.
