Db2 JDBC Driver Versions and Db2 Version Compatibility

This is a topic that gets a lot of questions from time to time and it seems folks have a hard time finding the information. When upgrading your Db2 version or installing a Fixpack you should check for driver fixes and new versions. Also it is a good practice to keep your drivers current, which means having a good test environment where you test the new drivers with your applications, this minimizes risk when upgrading. Here is the link: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21363866 . For Db2 database version compatibility for 9.7, 10.1 and 10.5 refer to this link:  http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21363866  and for 11.1 here : https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSEPGG_11.1.0/com.ibm.db2.luw.apdv.java.doc/src/tpc/imjcc_c0024897.html.  Make the Db2 Knowledge Center your friend!
