Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.

Use permanent database for DSNTRVFY rather than implicit database
Each time we run DSNTIJRV, the DSNTRVFY program creates the DSNTRVFY.VALIDATION_TABLE in an implicitly-created database, which the process then leaves hanging around with no objects in it. Both empty databases and implicitly-created databases viol...
DSN1COPY does not currently supports XML table restore on another DB2 subsystem or in the case of a dropped XML tablespace.
This lack can be easily bypassed by an UNLOAD / RELOAD in the case of a copy to another DB2 subsystem. But in the event of ...
