Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

DB2 JCC support for safkeyring in trustStoreLocation and keyStoreLocation properties

The is a requirement for the JCC on z/OS which is not an option under the operating system pulldown.

The DB2 JCC type-4 supports SSL connections to DB2 on z/OS. However, the keyStoreLocation and trustStoreLocation must currently be files in the file system. With a password that is saved in a configuration file.

The customer has decreed that all socket connections between client and server be over SSL connections. However, they want to keep all the security information for SSL connections in the SAF security database. This means that the jcc must support a key store and trust store of the format: safkeyring:/// and also support keyStorType property of JCERACFKS .

Support must be at the datasource level and not the JVM level to enable multiple DB2 subsystems to be accessed with different credentials.
