  • How the Apache Derby Network Server communicates with remote clients through DRDA

  • How the DB2 Universal Database client enables applications written to the ODBC or the DB2 CLI specification to communicate with an Apache Derby Network Server

  • How to install a DB2 client on Linux or Windows

  • How to add an Apache Derby database to the DB2 client catalog of database connections

  • How to test your connection to an Apache Derby database
