Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

CDC Replicating DATA of VIEW from MAINFRAME to DISTRIBUTED

I have a requirement where we want to replicate data of a view to AIX side. I am attaching VIEW DDL is it possible with the help of CDC to achieve replication to AIX table


View on mianframe is as follows


CREATE VIEW PPSDB01.EXPR_PAL_ADDR AS

SELECT PA.PROV_ID , PA.PAL_ID , PA.ADDR_ID , PA.PAL_ADDR_SEQN ,

A.ST_PRVNC_CD , A.CNTRY_CD , A.CNTY_CD , A.ADDR_LN1 , A.ADDR_LN2

, A.CTY_NM , A.POSTL_CD , PA.PAL_ADDR_EFDT AS EFF_DT , COALESCE

( PA.PAL_ADDR_END_DT - 1 DAY , '2999-12-31' ) AS END_DT ,

P.CORP_ENT_CD

FROM PPSDB01.T_PAL_ADDR PA INNER JOIN PPSDB01.T_ADDR A ON PA.ADDR_ID

= A.ADDR_ID INNER JOIN PPSDB01.T_PROV P ON P.PROV_ID =

PA.PROV_ID INNER JOIN PPSDB01.T_PAL PL ON PL.PROV_ID =

PA.PROV_ID AND PL.PAL_ID = PA.PAL_ID

WHERE PA.VLDT_IND = 'Y' AND PA.PAL_ADDR_EFDT <> COALESCE (

PA.PAL_ADDR_END_DT , '2999-12-31' ) AND PL.LOC_TYP_CD = 'OFF';


On AIX side we have table defined, currently we every night its export / import with the help of flat file , which we want to get away
