I need to find some sort of simple DB2 client by which to test / examine a small DB2 stored procedure that a customer just handed me.

It contains some features that apparently only exist DB2's SQL & doesn't run under MS, Sybase or Oracle. It doesn't actually even access the database, it does all its stuff with local variables.

I spent an hour downloading a mammoth SDK from IBM, and found something called 'Developer Center', but this looks like a full-blown IDE, what I really want is a simple DB2 equivalent of Query Analyzer or ISQL. Any thoughts appreciated.

If you dont want to do the whole db2 client stuff, you could use JDBC ( You may need to start DB2's jdbc proxy server ).  Course you will also need to locate the DB2 driver.

GUIs are nice. I have used this one.

You need the DB2 "Application Development Client". It is located somewhere in the bowels of IBM's god-awful website.
