External Stored Procedure sub modules to be loaded from same path as 'external name;
DB2 supports multiple (in our case development) databases within a db2 Instance and External Stored Procedures (in our case COBOL) can be developed in parallel by using different qualifiers in the external name e.g.
alter procedure cxjjp.UIXN01 external name :
This allows two different versions of UIXN01 to be developed at the same time for two different databases in the same instance.
However, any sub modules that UIXN01 calls will only be loaded from default path - for cobol being ~db2inst1/sqllib/funtion.
The problem with this is that only one version of a sub-module can be developed at any one time - i.e. db2 does not fully support development of multiple database environments within an instance.
The only way around this that I can see is to have multiple instances each with one development databases so the modules would be loaded as such:
