Consistently handle unsupported Db2 datatypes when creating Virtual tables
When creating a Vitural Table for Db2 BLOB and CLOB with traditional access, the wizard prompts that these columns will be omitted. Executing selects against the created VT is successful. If direct access to Db2 is chosen, the same prompts occur, ...
Allow Source DVM to pass Virtual Target System name to target DVM over IDF
We would like the ability for the source DVM to pass information, such as the Virtual Target System name, to the target DVM and make this information available within the rules running on the target. This will allow us to reduce the number of DVM ...
