We are trying to write a Java program to access VSAM Data using JDBC and for that we need to use the associated JDBC driver ( fully qualified path is com.ibm.vse.jdbc.VsamJdbcDriver ).

As per the IBM website (https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSB27H_6.2.0/fa2ws_ovw_vse_connector_client.html ), the file VSEConnector.jar needs to be used for accessing the driver .But when we download the VSE Connector Client zip file ( from https://www.ibm.com/it-infrastructure/z/zvse-downloads#2339181 ) ,the extracted file does not contain the mentioned jar .

If anybody has any idea on how to get this JDBC driver jar file , please let me know .

how did You determine that what You are looking for is not there ?

I was curious and ...

when You unzip
Code:
vsecon620_ph08671.zip

You get ...
Code:
Archive:  vsecon620_ph08671.zip
 Length   Method    Size  Cmpr    Date    Time   CRC-32   Name
--------  ------  ------- ---- ---------- ----- --------  ----
     266  Defl:N      183  31% 02-18-2019 16:14 df586995  setup.bat
     266  Defl:N      183  31% 02-18-2019 16:14 df586995  setup.cmd
11506826  Defl:N 11497167   0% 02-18-2019 16:14 aafc2443  setup.jar
     183  Defl:N      127  31% 02-18-2019 16:14 4429f5cd  setup.sh
--------          -------  ---                            -------
11507541         11497660   0%                            4 files

and then You have to run setup.bat to install the whole shebang

BTW You should know that jar files are zipped files
and You can look/expand their content uzing the ZIP/UNZIP program available

so ...
if You unzip the
Code:
setup.jar

and after that
Code:
data.zip
the payload

You will see that what You are looking for is there
Code:
./data/VSEConnector.jar


so at the end You have no reason to complain
