IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

Use package collection other than NULLID for CLP and Db2 Utilities

Db2/zOS colleagues want to get rid of lock issues with rebind of packages in schema NULLID, thus the decided to have Db2/zOS release specific package collections to provide actual and rebound packages for every Db2 release to the distributed (Db2/LUW) applications.

This works well for CLI and JDBC applications, as they can make use of CurrentPackageSet or CurrentPackagePath parameter in db2cli.ini, db2dsdriver.cfg or connection URL.

But command line processor (CLP) or utilities (e.g. EXPORT) won't use that parameter, as they always look for packages in schema NULLID only!

As Db2 uses that schema NULLID for decades already, customers having databases migrated over many years, will have tons of meanwhile unsused packages within that schema, which sometimes caused issues as they cannot be revalidated or rebound anymore.

Having even dedicated schemata for every Db2/LUW release, would allow a more acurate maintenance and handling of packages being outdated.

Or you can even 'force' application to use more actual client versions, if the packages are found in the current release schema/collection only ;-)
