Hi Alan,

IBM no longer provides support for the DB2 driver with Derby  and is not 
testing it with new releases. It would be great to see an open source 
initiative for an ODBC driver for Derby.  Although this is often 
requested, I don't think we have a Jira entry for it yet.  Perhaps you 
could open one.
