HiT JDBC Family

HiT JDBC/DB2 and HiT JDBC/400 are compact, 100% Pure Java type 4 middleware for DB2 SQL access from custom applications and third party products. HiT JDBC middleware implements standard Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) function calls and communicates with the DB2 server to retrieve, update, and insert DB2 data. Leveraging standard IBM DB2 access protocols, including Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA) and OS/400 Optimized Database Server protocol, both HiT JDBC products communicate with native IBM server programs and do not require any additional programs installed on the DB2 host system. Support is also included for the most common DB2 single and double-byte character sets. Importantly, all communication with the DB2 server can also be optionally encrypted and authenticated via SSL v3.0 support. For more information click here.
