'it was mentioned that Oracle SQL developer can CONNECT to DB2.'Where was this mentioned and what was the context?
I am sorry I do not currently have more information for you.
thats where it was mentioned( as future plans in 2007):
SQL Developer - SQL Developer is to offer ODBC connectivity to DB2, MS-SQL, MySQL and EnterpriseDB.
From the feature request apex site:
Title Connection Options for DB2
Description It would be nice to be able to connect to DB2 as well as the other connection options that are available now. Another tab maybe? JDBC support is available.
Comment This is on the list for a future release.

This may not have a high priority:
Sue Harper is the Product Manager, she is often on these boards,
I am not sure what more she can say for certain.
That link is to a news site which has no official status.
Oracle have made no such anouncement ( and never give dates even when they do).
The most accurate source is likely to be the Statement of direction.
Thank you all for your feedback.
It's 2008 year now. Oracle runs so slowly.
And now it's 2009... still no DB2 support?
It's currently scheduled for Release 2.0 - I would go vote to show folks are still interested in this feature.
I saw another post that originally said it was going to 1.5 but was moved

The next scheduled release is now billed as 2.1 (not 2.0) and DB2 is still scheduled to go into that.
I must add that the requesting and voting for features gives us a useful guide to what features users want and by voting gives the request weight, but never guarantees a feature. Any feature that we say is scheduled for a release is also not guaranteed. All Oracle presentations and statements of direction provide that disclaimer. This is true for any product, we need to balance release schedules and features and if it means cutting features that are not quite ready for a release we will do that. Features not originally scheduled for a release are sometime moved forward and others are shifted out. I add this comment to this thread, not to cause concern about the DB2 feature, but in response to Evita's request that you vote for a feature we have already said is scheduled for the next release.
Thanks Sue - if someone on the team could update that request please so other folks who don't see this won't be disappointed, that would help :)
They're both now marked as scheduled for 2.0. We typically work through the Exchange in batches at various stages in the year. When I next do a full update I'll switch the 2.0 to 2.1 where appropriate.
See [Oracle SQL Developer 2.1 Early Adopter 1 (18.104.22.168.61)|http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/sql/index21_EA1.html] - Released September 24, 2009
yes, this is for UDB 8&9 only.
We will support iSeries and ZOS in subsequent releases.
I was able to connect on iSeries too using db2jcc.jar and db2jcc_license_cisuz.jar files. See
