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,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Please add a built-in function to reverse a string
Currently to reverse a string, we have to create a udf. The syntax for a simple one was easily available on the SQLTips4Db2 blog .... which IBM has removed. I think Db2 on z has this, and some other variants of SQL out there include it. This is the text of that one, not saying it has to be this, but this is one way to do it:
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION REVERSE(INSTR VARCHAR(4000))
RETURNS VARCHAR(4000) SPECIFIC REVERSE
DETERMINISTIC NO EXTERNAL ACTION CONTAINS SQL
RETURN WITH rec(pos, res) AS (VALUES (1, CAST('' AS VARCHAR(4000)))
