IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

Shape the future of IBM!

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,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

DBName/ZOSDBNameFilter ODBC configuration keyword in JDBC

Looking on the information center I found documentation on the DBName ODBC configuration keyword. According to the documentation: << If this option is set then the statement IN DATABASE dbname will be appended to various statements such as CREATE TABLE.>>.
This is exactly what we need for a Java based schema deployment with tools like Liquibase, Flyway, Datical ... and enhance the control over the creation of tables from any JDBC based client (We would be able to implicitly assign databases to implicitly created tablespaces). The PMR confirmed that this feature does not exist in JDBC.
