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.

automatically applied DB2 fixpack at deployment time
that there is currently not a way to automatically have a DB2 fixpack applied at deployment time (other than to write a script package to start a DB2 fixpack install and have that script package executed at deploy time).
A description of Oracle's 'multi-version read consistency' can be found here: http://www.ss64.com/orasyntax/10locking.html. Even DB2's most liberal CS isolation is more strict then this. [update 04-27-2009]: Support for isolation level 3 queries t...
The IBM info center (online searchable documentation) has become less and less useful over the years. Documentation on a topic is often fragmented across multiple pages that link to each other. This makes it very difficult to find a piece of infor...
