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.
There are different ways to generate an access plan, i.e., to explain a statement using SQL. One simple way is to use EXPLAIN PLAN FOR. However, it is not possible to print the generated access plan using SQL. Thus, add a table function to pretty print an access plan.
if not specified, return the access plan for the last explained session user
else use the query tag or query number to identifiy the statements (see EXPLAIN PLAN FOR)
by default or if specified, print a compact representation of the query plan
if requested, print the plan with all details
The output should be in a table format (hence table function).
The new functionality closes Db2 tooling gaps. It would allow to quickly obtain AND print access plan information in Jupyter notebooks and (IBM) Data Science tools. It would also enhance the SQL consoles in our aaS offerings.
