Wat it means is that the driver manager has loaded the library, 
extracted the enrty points and called SQLAllocHandle( ENV)  and 
thatreturns a error.

You may have said what platform you are on, but do you have anything 
like strace to see whats going on under the hood, it may be a missing lib.

I don;t know if it still exists but DB2 used to come with a command line 
tool db2 that used the same libs as the ODBC driver to connect. I would 
guess the JDBC driver goes a entirely different path.
