Workspace Db2 for z/OS
Created by Guest
Created on Feb 10, 2014

SQL Pruning for 0 > 1

The following SQL will not do a GETPAGE on 'table1' because the DB2 Optimizer recognizes that the predicate 'WHERE 0 = 1' has an empty result set:

Select * from table1 where 0 = 1

The same is true if a date is used.:
Select * from table1 where '2014-02-01' = '2013-01-01'

This is called 'PRUNING'.

This RFE is to enhance the pruning functionality from '=' (equal sign) to '<' (less sign) or '>' (greater sign).

    Dear Bodo,

    Thank you for submitting this Db2 for z/OS enhancement request. We have reviewed this request and believe it is a good candidate

    for the Db2 for z/OS product. However, it does not align within functionality prioritized for delivery within the next 12 months. Therefore, unfortunately, we will not be considering this idea at this time.

    This idea will remain in our product backlog and may be revisited as we continue to plan for later features and functions.

    We appreciate your input to the Db2 for z/OS development team. We hope that you will continue to submit enhancement suggestions for improvements as customer feedback is a key component to shaping the future direction of Db2 for z/OS.

    Sincerely,

    The Db2 for z/OS Team
