Without setting the currentSchema for DB2, you need to fully qualified the DB object (table, view etc) name.
According IBM documentation, currentSchema means "This allows the end user or application to name SQL objects without having to qualify them by schema name."
How to setup the crrentSchema for DB2 DataSource in Websphere?
Resources->JDBC->Click your Data Source name->Customer properties->currentSchema.
Restart your Websphere to make it take effective.
BTW: The DataSource currentSchema setting could be co-exist with the openjpa.jdbc.Schema setting in persistent.xml without intereference with each other.
