I have an Oracle database and DB2 Connect installed on the same Unix server. Can DB2 Connect be used to 'join' data retrieved from an iSeries server with data in the Oracle tables?
No, you need the DB2 Relational Connect product to access non-DB2 servers. The DB2 Relational Connect product has recently been replaced by DB2 Information Integrator. More details on heterogeneous data access can be found here.
