Earlier this week I submitted a new dissector for the DRDA / DB2 protocol.
I saw no reaction so far on the mailing list.
Is anyone having a look at it ? (see my post on 26/3).

Subject: Protocol for DRDA / DB2
In attachment you will find a dissector for the DRDA protocol.
This is the protocol used by among others the DB2 database.
Please check it in or comment.
BTW, the makefile "setup" option is very convenient to download the
dependent libraries, I quickly had an environment from scratch to build
DRDA stands for Distributed Relational Database Architecture.
It is a protocol between database client and database server published by
the Open Group (www.opengroup.org)
DDM (Distributed Data Management) is an data management interface which
allows to exchange structured data between systems.
DRDA is specific to relational databases and uses a subset of DDM to
transport its data.
The IBM DB2 product uses the DRDA protocol from version V8.
Unless negotiated differently during the handshake, the fields of the DDM
commands and reply messages are in EBCDIC.
