External bind files for Db2 LUW

Currently creating package binds for Db2 z/OS is completely separated from the DVM subsystem. I can roll out the packages to all Db2 z/OS subsystems before any DVM subsystems are created. For Db2 LUW, in order to install the binds, I must first define the LUW database within the IN00 file and then use either DVM Studio or JCL to create the package binds.

    This enhancement request has been addressed. As of April, all DVM for z/OS client components are delivered to IBM's Fix Central location. A 'Utilities' folder has been added and contains the bind files needed for use. Attached is a snapshot of the Utilities folder.
