SoapUI pro - DB2 Invalid database URL syntax issue

Recently, I was trying to connect to DB2 database using SoapUI pro 4.5.1 and got the following error message "[jcc]...Invalid database URL syntax: ...ERRORCODE=-4461,SQLSTATE=42815".

On further analysis, I discovered that the default connection string for IBM DB2 Drivers in SoapUI did not have a semicolon at the end of password variable.

Therefore to solve the above issue, you can use any of the following approaches:

1: add the semicolon at the end of the connection string template for DB2. The connection string templates are available under the option soapUI Preferences - JDBC Driver Properties.

2: Create a custom connection string with semicolon in your test case.

3: If you don't want to use either  of the above approaches, third approach is to add semicolon at the end of the Password variable text.

NOTE: To connect to DB2 database, you will require to add db2jcc.jar and db2jcc_licence_cisuz.jar files in the SoapUI ext folder.
