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.

Planned for future release
Since the requirement to have a Package for Dynamic SQL was introduced there has always been the problem about when to REBIND these "empty shells". The requirement to REBIND was only slightly annoying in the past as it was just to avoid an auto bi...
Profile Tables today support only remote connections and no support for local/batch applications. When PT is used to set certain registers, it only works for remote applications and local apps needs to be changed to add certain SET commands.
Global Variables: A global variable can be created with a default value. Each session that uses it will then instantiate a version of that global variable, with the default value and any change in the value is limited in scope to its unit-of-work....
