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.
Expand db2pd -reorgs index to cover index rebuilds
Currently, there is no way to monitor index rebuild progress using db2pd. It will be useful for customers to be able to monitor index rebuild progress as they do for index reorgs (db2pd -reorgs index).
Perform rebuild of each index (for a table) in its own transaction

Automatic propagation of a significant application name
When a java program connects to the database, the application name is usually db2jcc_application. This behavior can be overridden by setting the appropriate properties in the DB2 driver. Unfortunately, it is rarely done (from my experience). It co...

Support XA transactions on column-organized tables
We have a main DW database on DB2 for z/OS and a Datamart on DB2 for LUW. Some tables on both z/OS and LUW are populated using Cobol programs which are submitted from the mainframe. We want to convert the Datamart on DB2 LUW to BLU, but the Cobol ...
