Hi Jeff,

as far as I can see there is unfortunatly actual no working support for DB/2
in OpenCms. 
Recently Nicolás Lichtmaier <nick at> replaced the Oracle code
in the ge-
neric SQL section with the deltas for that particular SQL parser (PostGres).
If you like
to contribute you should derive the needed functionality from the
generic/Oracle and cre-
ate three new classes (CmsDbAccess, CmsQueries and CmsResourceBroker).
WebSphere support is nearly two years old and shoud work out of the box at
least for 3.5.
AS/400 support sounds *very* interesting! I've seen solely sites using
Window* and *NIX 
OS's for OpenCms on differents CPU architectures. Would be nice to hear from
the results, 
in either cases ... good luck!

cu Stefan

I read in the archives that there was some work done toward providing
support for DB2. What is the status of that effort?

We would like to deploy OpenCMS under WebSphere on an AS/400 with DB2 as our
primary data store. If anyone has any hints or tips, they would be greatly
