Your exact configuration is not something I've worked with, but since
you asked for ideas...

The JDBC thick client uses Oracle OCI, which in turn uses Net8 (SQL*Net)
naming, such as TNSNAMES.ORA.  If your SQL*Plus client (OCI) can
"tnsping" DB2, then it should be able to execute the SP, because the DB
link is able to resolve your connect string

The JDBC thin client does not use TNS naming (or at least, it's not
supposed to...).  Somehow, you need to completely specify the connect
string, you can't use a lookup like "", for example.  Somewhere
(maybe the DB Link connect string?) you need to specify something like


to connect to the remote database via JDBC thin client.
