Hi all,

What do you need to develop GUI Interfaces for DB2 ???? ( kinda like
Access Forms ? ). What are the IDE options available to someone developing
for windows ?

Also does DB2 have ODBC drivers for Windows ??

Raghu,

I think anything which you can use with other database can be used with
DB2 for GUI development. Anything means your own developed application in
any language. However, DB2 Forms are available which is much easier to use
and its a very good product because it offers web development very easily.
You can download the trial copy from IBM website and use that for sometime.

Yes, DB2 have ODBC driver i.e. name is probably IBM ODBC Driver. When you
install DB2 for Windows and DB2 connect (comes together) , you will get
everything which can be used to connect to either the database in Windows or
the host database on some other enterprise systems. Now a days this is
widely used for developing the client-server as well as the web
applications.

Just give a visit to IBM website, you will find lots of
information,manuals which will give you complete idea of how DB2 has
progressed since last 3 years.

HTH

Sanjeev
