IDUG 2022 North America Db2 Tech Conference

11. July 2022 14. July 2022 EDT

Meet us at booth 9


E04 – Esoteric functions in Db2 for z/OS – Download PDF
Monday 4:30pm

In this presentation Roy will delve into FTB/FIT, Spatial Indexes, Regular Expressions, Clone tables and Scrollable cursors. All of these could be called esoteric as most shops do not use or even know of their existence! I would hope that after this presentation the viewers will have learned something new about Db2 and perhaps could use one or more of these esoteric functions so that it becomes „well known“ function and not a hidden gem!

E10 – Are you happy or are you still deprecated – Download PDF
Wednesday 9:00am

Db2 has grown a lot over the years and, partly due to this, it carries around a ton of old baggage. It is definitely the right time to start crawling through the Db2 catalog and review any and all of the “deprecated” objects that are hanging around still nailed to their perches!

Presentation Outline:

  1. What’s a “deprecated” object?
  2. Are they going to hurt me?
  3. How do I find them?
  4. How do I get rid of them?
