Interactive SQL for JDBC (JDBCISQL) is now installed with the product.
JDBCISQL is a command-line interface that supports connecting your driver
to a data source, executing SQL statements and retrieving results in a
terminal. This tool provides a method to quickly test your drivers in an
environment that does not support GUIs.*
The CryptoProtocolVersion connection property has been added to the driver. This property can be used to avoid vulnerabilities associated with SSLv3 and SSLv2, including the POODLE vulnerability.
Support for result set holdability has been added to the driver.
Java SE 7 has reached the end of its product life cycle and will no longer
receive generally available security updates. As a result, the drivers will no
longer support JVMs that are version Java SE 7 or earlier. Support for
distributed versions of Java SE 7 and earlier will also end, including
IBM SDK (Java Edition).*
Added the RegisterStatementPoolMonitorMBean connection property. Note that the driver no longer registers the Statement Pool Monitor as a JMX MBean by default. You must set RegisterStatementPoolMonitorMBean to true to register the Statement Pool Monitor and manage statement pooling with standard JMX API calls.*
