||Apache License 2.0
||ibm_db2 provides access to DB2 and compatible databases on PHP.
It uses a procedural interface. (PDO users should use PDO_IBM instead.)
The following software is supported without any additional licenses:
- IBM Db2 (Linux/Unix/Windows)
- IBM Db2 for i (running on IBM i)
- Apache Derby
The following software may require additional licenses on the database:
- IBM Db2 Connect for i (for using Db2 for i from LUW)
- IBM Db2 Connect for z (for using Db2 for z from LUW)
Note that for IBM i, IBM and Seiden Group recommend new applications use ODBC instead.
Fixed: DB2 PHP driver does not work as expected with values in BIGINT column
Added: test case test_bigint.phpt for BIGINT datatype
Fixed: Persistent connections takes up to 1 hour to reconnect on db2 TSA HA failover
FIxed: Fixed: Allow trial license to connect ZOS/i5
Added a environment variable IBM_DB_HOME to make the installation process easy and config script will automatically detect the architecure for which PHP is built and accordingly use the libraries under lib32/lib64.
