Hi All

Thanks for Prompt Response from Community

I am finally able to resolve this issue. Rather than using JDBC Driver Class I have used another Class available which is DB2SimpleDataSource.  This has allowed me to get Connection to already running Database. Once we get Connection we can use SQL to get Data from Table.

public static javax.sql.DataSource getDS(String database, String user, String password) throws SQLException
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2SimpleDataSource ds = new com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2SimpleDataSource();

// DatabaseName can include Cloudscape URL Attributes

if (user != null)
if (password != null)

// The host on which network server is running

// port on which Network Server is listening

// Driver type must be 4 to access Network Server

return ds;

Access the Database using:
javax.sql.DataSource ds = getDS("c:/temp/TESTDB", null, null);
// Note:  user and password are required on connection
conn = ds.getConnection("ddd", "dd");

Thanks and Regards

Re: Urgent Help Required : Accessing DB with Derby Net Server

You might include db2jcc_license_c.jar as well into the classpath.
