Before installing AcuSQL, you should install, configure, and test your application-host to data-host connection software. For accessing DB2 databases, AcuSQL has been tested with IBM DB2 Connect software, and its use is recommended. However, any vendor’s properly installed and configured ODBC level 2 API connection is acceptable. This middleware connection software is essential to AcuSQL’s successful use.

Note: You must ensure that your connection middleware is functioning properly before attempting to run an AcuSQL-supported application.
