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.
Generate DDL for implicitly created XML tables and tablespaces
Today Admin tool cannot really handle implicitly created XML tables and tablespaces very well. It's very obscure to really understand what parameters were used when creating the table or if they differ from the source table.
Using OCT via GOCCMDDF or GOCCMDSN procedures these objects cannot be compared between our environments.
This limitation makes it very difficult to change these objects and creates uncertainty if objects differs between environments or subsystems.
Using admin tool with the line command AL on a implicitly created XML tablespace we get presented with the same parameters and ability to change the object just like any another tablespace.
We do not have DDF present between our pre-production and production environments which further this limitation
No workaround is available at this moment, manual handling of the DDL is the only option.
