As part of the Panther installation package, a set of standard Panther executables is provided. Depending on the version of software, your configuration, and the platform and database being used, you might need to create new executables. Specifically, a new executable is required if you are adding another database driver or using IXI Motif libraries.
Note: Panther WebSphere Edition uses shared libraries for database connectivity, and does not require new executables to link in additional database drivers.
