Configuring DB2 Connect PE to Support Siebel Developer Web Client
Using DB2 Connect PE to support the Siebel Developer Web Client involves:
- A Siebel Developer Web Client workstation on which you install DB2 Connect Personal Edition (PE), to act as a gateway to the database.
- DB2 for z/OS.
With this approach, a user on a Siebel Developer Web Client connects directly to DB2. See the upper part of Figure 1.
To connect to DB2 using DB2 Connect PE
- Install DB2 Connect PE on the Siebel Developer Web Client workstation machine.
- On the machine, upgrade DB2 Connect PE to the appropriate Fix Pack. See Installing Required IBM Fix Packs for further information.
If you previously installed a DB2 Connect run-time client, the DB2 Connect installer upgrade adds only the functionality required for the existing client. (This is also the case if you have a DB2 server or SDK installed on your workstation.)
- On the workstation machine, catalog your z/OS databases as appropriate, using the DB2 Client Configuration Assistant or the DB2 Command Line Processor.
After installation, use a standard DB2 client to access DB2 Connect.
