Data Virtualization Manager for z/OS

Showing 96

Add boolean support for Oracle, Postgres and Db2 z/OS

Currently boolean fields are supported on Db2 LUW but not the DBMS's listed above.

Allow Logon to JDBC Gateway Console via RACF group instead of shared credentials

Currently the logon to each JGate console is via a single id/pw. These credentials must be shared by the support team which is not a best practice. When team members leave, all passwords must be changed (if that's even possible). If changing the p...

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...

Allow for a rule that forces DVM to access tables in the order of the SQL statement

I know the best order of access. Give me a way to communicate to DVM that it should access the tables in the order coded in the SQL.

Show LPAR on ISPF panels

We run the same DVM subsystem over multiple LPAR's. When jumping between ISPF sessions, it would be helpful to know which LPAR we are currently on.

Refresh all DVM's sharing the same map dataset

In multi-LPAR environments, we will have a single DVM subsystem running across more than one LPAR. When maps are created in DVM, we would want all instances of DVM that are sharing the same map dataset to be refreshed.

Add latest version of the log4j API to the DVM distribution

The log4j that ships with DVM is not the latest version available online (at https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/download.html). We need the flexibility of using any log4j jar.

Db2 connect driver support

Db2 connect drivers should be supported with DVM IDF. This will be helpful when we want to join any data source with DB2 and then access it through IBM products like Data studio etc.

Enable DVM refresh via REST call

We run a signal DVM over multiple LPARs in some high availability environments. When new maps are imported into the share dataset, the LPARs that were not the target of the import need to be refreshed. If we use a REST call for the import, we need...

Provide detailed information about User Exit interface in product manual

Some of the IBM software products such as IMS, Db2 and Db2 HPU, etc. provide User Exit interface to enhance the product's capability to customers' particular requirements. Such products usually have a corresponding chapter or appendix in their pro...
