Document the client_prdid for each Fix Pack release of db2jcc.jar and db2jcc4.jar drivers

When Java applications connect to DB2 via the JDBC Type 4 JCC driver, the only version-specific identifier visible from the DB2 server (via an application snapshot) is the client product ID of the driver, such as JCC03000. This value is currently undocumented for the JCC drivers, so the DBA cannot determine the Fix Pack level of the client from the server server side. Technote 1363866 only shows file sizes and JDBC driver versions, neither of which are visible from an application snapshot on the DB2 server. Documenting each driver's JCC% string (the value shown in client_prdid) will enable the DBA to quickly determine the exact Fix Pack level of a db2jcc client without logging in to the client system and manually interacting with a JAR file.

    At least here it could be documented https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/db2-jdbc-driver-versions-and-downloads which number was used in which driver version.


    Could be a apprentice job during the next school holidays. ;-)

    This idea is a duplicate of DB2CON-I-3 which includes the request for a unique JCC client_prdid in each Db2 fix pack. Please consider combining them.
