IBM DB2 Stored Procedures Programming Workshop

IBM Course Code: 2L711G

GK# 0149 Vendor# CL711G

Course Overview

TOP

This course is designed to provide the database application designer with knowledge to recognize when a stored procedure is the correct solution for an application. The development of stored procedures is taught using the SQL Procedural Language. This course exposes the student to the IBM Optim Development Studio GUI tool to rapidly develop and test SQL stored procedures using the SQL Procedural Language. In addition to using the GUI tool to develop and implement stored procedures, you are taught how to implement these SQL stored procedures using a text editor with the IBM DB2 Command Window and the Command Editor.

The course engages the student in a series of lectures, each followed by a hands-on exercise to create and call SQL procedures using extensive process flows and cursor processing to return result sets to the invoking client or caller. Each exercise builds on the previous exercise to allow the student to use condition handling, dynamic SQL, user-defined types, large objects, nested procedures, IBM Optim Development Studio debugging facility, SQL procedure tracing using sqlpltrc, security considerations, and tuning and performance techniques.
