Leverage "FOR EACH ROW ON UPDATE" functionality to maintain Peer to Peer Version Columns, instead of triggers

Current implementation of Peer to Peer Version Columns (IBMQREPVERTIME and IBMQREPVERNODE) depend on BEFORE INSERT and BEFORE UPDATE triggers to maintain transaction information for conflict_action of V (last transaction wins). The use of these tr...
