Can I use db2 8.1 driver(db2jcc.jar) connect to db2 7.2?

P: n/a
Hi all,

As title!!

My development environment is db2 v8.1. But my production environment
is db2 v7.2. Can I use db2jcc.jar to connect to db2 v7.2?

Thanks a lot.

Generally its good practise to use the correct jdbc driver with the
correct version of the database. This way you avoid erratic/
unpredictable results. I would think that this is only practical if
you have a comprehensive set of JDBC testsuites to ensure the correct
behaviour of the driver.
Perhaps i am missing something but why can't you swap in the db2 v7.2
jars into your development environment?
