DVM Studio parser needs 64-bit support

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.

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.

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.

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...

UNION ALL of n number of Db2 uses a lot of memory and runs long

Enhance server to support parallelism for “UNION ALL” using the MRC capability.

UNION ALL of 2 or more Db2 subsystems uses a lot of memory

Enhance server to check for “UNION ALL” and skip buffering, allowing the data to flow back to client

Support the ability for the JDBC Application name to be passed through TOR to PEER

We currently have a need to use the JDBC Application name to set schema values on virtual tables pointing to Db2 tables. This works fine for a single DVM, but when we have a DVM-to-DVM (TOR-to-PEER) situation, the application name is not being pas...
