IBM DB2 connector, what does it cost to get it?

#1

Since the new Database connector structure i’m not able to update Metabase, because my IBM DB2 connector is not supported anymore(downloaded here in forum).
I’m not a Java developer and i don’t have the ressources to program it from the scratch in my company.

My question is where or who can program a DB2 connector.

I can’t imagine, that i’m the only one, who uses Metabase with an IBM iSeries.

If i’m not able to have a solution i have to Switch form Metabase to other Plattform.

Hi @TomeK
You are definitely not the only one using DB2 - currently ranked 25 of the most requested drivers (out of 98)
https://github.com/metabase/metabase/issues/1509
But it seems like unless someone creates a driver, then it’s not in Metabase’s path for the future.

Not sure what surprises me most - that there are 98 different databases that need supporting or that DB2 is only 25th!

One day, I’ll understand why we can’t just have a generic JDBC driver…
