DB2/400 Database Coding and Implementation Using DDS and CL Commands


Course Description


Overview

Learn how to code, create and maintain DB2 UDB for i physical and logical files using native Data Description Specifications (DDS) and Control Language (CL) commands. Build a DB2 UDB for i relational database foundation, if you intend to write application programs for the IBM i system, however the course does not address SQL implementation of DB2 UDB for i. Learn many techniques that, if implemented, enhance the performance of applications using the database.
