I like Dan's suggestion in the last paragraph here, by turning the  
feature on only if we know we're running a JVM by a vendor where it has  
been certified to work:

user@db.apache.org&msgNo=139

Mike and/or Suresh would have a better idea than I where it would be  
appropriate to put such a check.

I'm not sure that we can do that. I agree that it would definitely  
simplify getting up and running with Network Server, but I had thought  
that Apache had a policy of not redistributing libraries with a license  
more restrictive than the ASL.

As long as the license for the DB2 JDBC driver allows for  
redistribution, it shouldn't be a problem to include it in your  
package. I just don't know if we can include it in ours due to the  
Apache guidelines. I would love to hear from someone more familiar with  
the issue.
