Workspace Db2 for z/OS

Created on May 5, 2021

Rebinding/Binding old native stored procedure packages

Let’s say you have a native SQL stored procedure package. And it was created/bound on Db2 V10 system. And you’d like to bind/rebind that same native SQL stored procedure package to V12R1M50+ (Let’s say for version next, if there is such a thing). The only way at this time to do that is a drop and recreate…Anytime a drop and recreate is done for this application it’s an outage…

    Hello, Please let us know if the following explanation satisfies this request:

    V12R1 (at any function level) does tolerate a V10-created native SQL procedure, so you don't have to drop/recreate that procedure.

    If an older such as V9-created native procedure is executed on Db2 12, that procedure will be implicitly alter-regenerated to Db2 12 format. This implicit alter regenerate process doesn't apply to a V10-created SQL procedure.

    If no response in 30 days we will close this Aha! Idea.

    Thank you,

    The Db2 for z/OS Development team
