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.

Enable use of DB2 Compound Statements in DataStage Connector Before/After SQL

As far as I can see, it is not possible to execute a DB2 compound statement in the DataStage DB2 Connector before/after SQL. The reason for this is, that you need to specify a statement terminator other than ";" which is currently not possible. If your want to execute a compound statement then you have to create a stored procedure in the database an call it

Provide a method to specify a statement terminator like "/" either on project, job or stage Level like the "Set Statement Terminator" field in the DataStudio SQL Script window

With this you don't have to create a stored procedure for every little bit of comound statement that you want to execute in a DB2 connector
