Database URL

In the Database URL field, type the database URL of the database server that provides access to the database. The format of the database URL depends on the type of Java™ Database Connectivity (JDBC) driver that you use to access the database (for more information on drivers see Driver Identifier and Driver Class).

The remote server can be located on a host other than the host to which the application session is connected. For example, a SQLQuery action can specify an IBM® i host, even though the same SQLQuery action is part of a macro that is running in a 3270 Display session connected to a System z® host.

Consult the documentation provided by the driver vendor for the proper format for the database URL.
