    I come from the mainframe world. Is it possible to create an SQL Explorer connection to a DB2 z/OS system?

      I'm not a DB2 expert but connecting a DB2 database on z/OS should be the same as connecting to a DB2 database on other operating systems except some special security considerations on z/OS.
      You need  a DB2 JDBC Driver for your client. Configure it in the SQLExplorer Driver preferences. Some informations, how to configure your connection URL you can find here:
