 Software connection to DB2
I have to rebuild an application to make it run on network cause we have to
share data between many clients.  We will use a DB2 database.  I'm
completely new with DB2, but i know enough about sql.  So, my application is
written in Delphi, i want to know, can my clients (delphi apps) connect
directly to db2 or must i write a server application between db2 and my
clients ?  Do you have suggestions or references that could help me ? ...

Thanks

You can connect using BDE DB2 link (there are two: legacy DB2 and UDB) or
using ADO via DB2 OLE DB provider. It is up to you whether to write a middle
tier or not. In my experience both BDE link and OLE DB provider work just
fine.

I believe Delphi uses an ODBC or OLE DB compliant interface.... If this is the
case then you will require the installation of DB2 Client code on each client.
You
can then use the Client Configuration Assistant (GUI tool) to configure the
connectivity
to your DB2 Database.

For references you can use the online documentation available with the DB2
Information Center.
You can also refer to www.redbooks.ibm.com and search on DB2 or connectivity or
development
you should find many valuable books (free download).
