LISTDEF support for DB2 Views in HPU RFE 101390

HPU supports to generate a list of objects - 'LISTDEF listname INCLUDE TABLESPACES TABLE owner.tbname' - that is later used in the UNLOAD. But, there is no support to generate a list for DB2 views using LISTDEF.

Use Case:

However internal policies don't allow to unload the table directly (autorization reasons). There are specific DB2 views created to unload the data. There is the need to generate a list of objects (views) that are unloaded by HPU. I already talked to DB2 development and they told me that LISTDEF (a DB2 engine function) is not designed for views and that this in not in plan. They asked me to open a HPU RFE to support that functionallity.
