after I found my Sun JDK1.4 crashing with the DB2 8.1 JDBC driver I finally
found the answer on the DB2 Application Development page:
No wonder that the JDK crashes, since, if the information on this page is
correct, only version 1.3 of the JDK is supported for Linux!
Does anybody know when this will change?
Or maybe there is a workaround, like getting a new version of some library
(I'm using Redhat 8.0) ...
