Using an IBM Db2 database

HCL Commerce is compatible with IBM Db2 Database Version 11.1.2.x and 11.5.

You can either install IBM Db2 directly through the installation package, or you can choose to run your database in a container. HCL provides a preconfigured IBM Db2 Docker container to be used as a development or test database. Do not use database containers in your production environment.
Note: If you are using the preconfigured IBM Db2 Docker container for your test database, you can skip this section, and move on to Configuring database connections in Docker images.
