I am using Datatools 1.6.2 (although this didn't work in 1.6.1 either).

When I select DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows from the Connection Profile
Types and then open the "New Driver Definition" dialog, I only see the
following two options:

IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC V9.1
Other Driver V9.1

The problem is that I am using an 8.x driver and nothing shows up for
previous versions of DB2.

I get this error when I attempt to test the connection:
at WJDBCConnection.initVersions(
org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.DriverConnectionBase.inte rnalCreateConnection(
at (
at WConnectionFactory.createConnection(JDBCLUWConnectionFactory .java:27)
org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.internal.ConnectionFactor yProvider.createConnection( )
org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.internal.ConnectionProfil e.createConnection(
org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.ui.PingJob.createTestConn ection(
at va:59)

I can actually connect if I use the Generic JDBC connection profile type
but that gives me another issue, plus I can't get any information when my
code accesses the connection profile because it's generic.

Am I doing something wrong? Are previous versions of DB2 not supported
any more?
