JDBC and data source troubleshooting tips

To see whether your specific problem has been addressed, review the Cannot access a data source topic. If you cannot find your problem described there, investigate the problem further by using the following instructions to enable tracing for relevant WAS components.

This topic includes the following sections...

The trace group that includes the trace strings is WAS.database.


JDBC trace properties

Set the level of trace desired for DB2 Universal database and Oracle as custom properties on the datasource.

If JDBC tracing does not provide enough information to isolate and fix your problem, check to see if the problem has been identified and documented by looking at the available online support (hints and tips, technotes, and fixes). If you do not find your problem listed there, contact IBM Support.
