OL62G,DDS,CL,DB,DB2

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.

Audience

This is a basic course for individuals who create and maintain a DB2 UDB for i database.

Skills Gained

  • Code the DDS and create the physical and logical files necessary to implement a DB2 UDB for i relational database
  • Describe the advantages of a field reference file, code the necessary DDS and create a field reference file
  • Explain how the choices made while coding the DDS and creating the file affect the performance of the system and the programs using the files
  • Describe the considerations for using the DB2 UDB for i referential integrity and triggers

Prerequisites

You must be able to:

  • Use Program Development Manager (PDM) and Source Entry Utility (SEU) to enter source code into a source file
  • Use PDM to create an IBM i object from a source file member
  • Explain the function of DDS in defining files on the i
  • Use Data File Utility (DFU) to maintain a physical file

Course Outline

  • The relational database model
  • Creating physical files
  • Creating logical files
  • Database performance considerations for application design
  • Database maintenance
  • DB2 UDB for i referential integrity
  • DB2 UDB for i triggers

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
