Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
Add the ability to control db2sqljcustomize behavior on untyped host variables and prevent silent data type conversion
We modernize a banking database application originally written in COBOL by migrating the functionality into a new written Java application.
During this application migration we noticed that there is an issue with unexpected/unwanted data type con...

Add Transaction Application lock types to the DBMS_LOCK package
We understand that there is an implementation of a version of the Oracle DBMS_LOCK package (minus transaction type and various modes) available on Db2 for LUW. While we can make some use of the session application lock type, we also have a need fo...
Reference to undeclared column should result in RC08, instead of RC04
In the COBOL program an INCLUDE statement is used where a DCLGEN is declared. The copybook ZSTBF02 is attached. When the COBOL source contains an SQL statement where a column is used which is not declared in the DCLGEN, a warning is issued in the ...
XML data type is not supported in Db2 stored procedure debugger in Data Studio or Visual Studio add-in. We are developing our support for SEPA and ISO 20022 projects using Db2 z/OS native stored procedures. They both heavily depend on XML. It woul...
In our environment, we have many queries with predicate: "expression op expression". As they don't use indexes they're performing a table scan. We would like DB2 to be able to use indexes to resolve this type of predicate. Examples: SELECT [id], [...
External Stored Procedure sub modules to be loaded from same path as 'external name;
DB2 supports multiple (in our case development) databases within a db2 Instance and External Stored Procedures (in our case COBOL) can be developed in parallel by using different qualifiers in the external name e.g. alter procedure cxjjp.UIXN01 ex...
Allow called Programs in z/OS to execute SQL without requiring the main program to be started with a DB2 plan.
When it becomes necessary for a called program in z/OS to execute SQL statements it is only possible when the main program is alredy called with a DB2 connection (DSN and Plan). While the required modification seems minor, it is next to impossible...
