Setting up a default library in DB2

How can I set up a default library in DB2 in order to not change our SQL statements? In fact, we are migrating from DB2 UDB Windows Server to the iSeries. Actually, in Windows environment, our SQL statements run well and with the SET CURRENT SCHEMAS = "EMPORIUM", we define default schemas so we don't have to explicitly specify it in each of our SQL statements. How can I do this in an iSeries environment? I need to define a library such as SELECT ... FROM MCMLIB.COMMANDES WHERE. Can you help me?

The iSeries Access ODBC and JDBC drivers support connection keywords and properties to allow specifying a default library. Here's an example of the ODBC connection keyword:
