Provide option to control the bypassing of the authorization checking for mapping objects when dbname is used in REORG job

Implicit mapping objects are seen as transient as they get created and dropped within the duration of the REORG. Therefore REORG logic was enhanced to bypass the authorization checking for it (PI08339). These objects might be transient and interna...

Eliminate the need to bind a subprogram locally called by a stored procedure running remotely

Today there are different code pathes if a package is called remotely from a local program OR a local stored procedure. If the package is called by a stored procedure we get SQLCODE805 if no local package exists. Therefore we have the need to bind...

Provide a default PLAN_TABLE and DSN_STATEMENT_CACHE_TABLE

If we use the CURRENT EXPLAIN MODE special register more widely, we have to create either a PLAN_TABLE and a DSN_STATEMENT_CACHE_TABLE or an ALIAS for each user. If we forget it, it doesn't work. So if there would be a default table for both, all ...

Begin / End COMMIT instrumentation for DRDA, CICS/IMS

Complex CICS/IMS or DRDA transactions (involving multiple programs with an implicit Commit at the end) are incorrectly presented on the Omegamon Accounting Report/Trace. By design the costs of the tough SYNC (COMMIT) operation are added to the las...

DSNTIAUL should support input LRECL size of > 80 bytes and not ignore input beyond the first 72 bytes

It is sometimes easy to put SQL all on one record as long as the LRECL of that record is very large. It becomes difficult to parse that SQL so it is divided into 72 byte records. Currently, the IBM utilities have input files that can have a LRECL ...
