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.
We would like the IDAA Loader to be able to exploit RMF online VSAM datasets like with other SMF records i.e. SMF type 70. This way we could easily analyze LPAR performance from the last hours in shorter intervals than from SMF records. A similar ...
Allow for a project view in Studio that only shows maps for a specific user and interfaces with both SCM and DVM servers.
The current Server tab shows all maps for a given DVM subsystem. The main premise of this Aha is that developers typically have a view within an IDE that contains just their project code (linked to their software configuration management system). ...
Validate SQL should simply validate whether the SQL is valid to execute
Currently, while in editing SQL in DVM Studio, you can highlight the SQL and choose "Validate SQL". This option will run the same logic used when creating a view and flag, for example, duplicate column names as an error. In this case the flagged S...
Make DVM JDBC driver publicly available via Maven-like repository
Currently, in order to make the latest JDBC driver available to our developers, we download the jar file from Fix Central, and then make a new entry in our company repository. Ideally, we would like our company repository to point to an IBM/Rocket...
Mac users are limited to installing the DVM plugin on their workstations. MacOS 10.14 is the last version that supports the current 32-bit application. The plugin will not install on an OS beyond 10.14.
In most cases, the collection of runstats requires access to the underlaying data. This access is typically not available to the DVM support team. Those with access to the data will likely not have access to modify global variables outside of Dev....
Preserve joins with accessing multiple underlying DVMs in a single SQL statement
I have a SQL statement that joins 3 tables from 1 PEER DVM with a single table from a different PEER DVM. Currently DVM is breaking this statement into 4 separate SQL statements before sending them to Db2. A better approach, when possible would be...
