Insert into from select with multiple columns and multiple tables

I need to create a SQL Trigger with Insert Statement selecting multiple columns from different tables . Something like this:


The issue is when I tried to select more than one column in the sub query. I know if I separate the Sub Query like this :


will work but definitely there must be a better and efficient way to do this.

Thanks in advance.

How to display data from DB2 database with SQL query in php

I'm using php to build a simple front end web application to my db2 database. This php query connects to the database and pulls the data from my selected table. I'm trying to insert my data into an html table to display it better (the rows are showing up in array formatting right now due to the "db2_fetch_array" function. How do I put my data into an html table? My php code is below, what should I add? Most questions I could find only dealt with mySQL and didn't have the same specification as I do.

DB Testing";} else{ exit("failed".db2_conn_errormsg()); }$sql = "select 'JUNK', apple, banana, orange, cake, grapes, egg from kitchen";//db2_execute executes a sql statement that was prepared by db2_prepareif($stmt){ $result = db2_execute($stmt); if(!$result){ echo "exec errormsg: " .db2_stmt_errormsg($stmt); } echo '';while($row = db2_fetch_array($stmt)) { echo ''; echo ''; echo ''; echo ''; echo ''; echo ''; echo ''; echo ''; }echo '
' . $row['apple'] . '' . $row['banana'] . '' . $row['orange'] . '' . $row['cake'] . '' . $row['grapes'] . '' . $row['egg'] . '
';}else {echo "exec errormsg: ".db2_stmt_errormsg($stmt);}db2_close($conn);?>'; print_r($val); echo '
'; } ?>
Stored Procedure not being called with Groovy in Ready API

I am trying to call a stored procedure through groovy in ReadyAPI. I am doing it this way, because the built in JDBC request does not seem to handle INOUT parameters.

The call seems like it works, but it doesn't actually make the call from what I can tell. One of the parameters is an INOUT parameter and after the call, I just get back what I passed in. There is supposed to be a conversion of the value passed. Also, there is some database logging that should happen that is not. However, the 2 OUT parameters are returned as expected. If I take the same call from the script and run it in a database tool, everything works as expected, so there is not an issue with the stored proc itself.

Here is the code from groovy script:

import groovy.sql.Sqldef globalUser = context.expand('${#Global#Username}')def globalPassword = context.expand('${#Global#Password}')def sql = Sql.newInstance("jdbc:as400://server/library", globalUser, globalPassword, "")"{call sp_storedproc('inparm1', 'inparm2', 'inparm3', 'inparm4', ${Sql.inout(Sql.VARCHAR('inout5'))}, ${Sql.VARCHAR},${Sql.VARCHAR})}") { parm5, parm6, parm7-> parm7}

I have also tried calling the stored procedure like this, but I always get data type mismatch errors. I don't know what the real difference is. '{call storedproc(?,?,?,?,?,?,?)}', ["inparm1", "inparm2", "inparm3", "inparm4", "${Sql.inout(Sql.VARCHAR('inout5'))}", "${Sql.VARCHAR}", "${Sql.VARCHAR}"]

Error message for Data Mismatch:

Wed Jun 21 08:46:01 EDT 2017:ERROR:java.sql.SQLException: Data type Data type mismatch. at at at at at groovy.sql.Sql.setObject( at groovy.sql.Sql.setParameters( at at groovy.sql.Sql$call$ Source) at at at$ at at com.eviware.soapui.impl.wsdl.panels.teststeps.GroovyScriptStepDesktopPanel$RunAction$ at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(Unknown Source) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$ Source) at Source)

Thanks in advance for any help.

implementation of combining graph-based queries and relational-based queries [on hold]

I am looking for some advice on how to combine graph and relational databases, specifically how to implement and bring together both styles of queries in one script.

Typically we use DB2 to query very large healthcare relational datasets, but we are having to deal with in the near future SNOMED CT, a coding schema that is essentially built with graph-based datasets in mind (i.e. LIKE statements will be rendered useless and subsetting data will depend upon relationships).

I am reading up on NOSQL, Neo4j and Cypher queries which is recommended by thos adopting SNOMED CT, but I have not come across anything about how to incorporate using graph based data whilst still maintaining relational databases.

Ideally I would like to be able to call on NOSQL/Cypher queries within standard SQL queries. I'd imagine this would be implemented via some wrapper code (Python, R?).

Does anyone have any experience of having to handle both relational and graph based data?


For Python-remote AS400 DB2 connection, do we have to use proprietary IBM ODBC driver?

I have a very concise question and i hope it is not put on hold : To connect from Python on Windows to a remote AS400 DB2, over any one of the Python DB API interfaces (ibm_db, pyodbc, pyDB2 or any other one), do we in any case have to use IBMs proprietary ODBC driver? In other words, is there any non-proprietary way of connecting to a remote iseries? Thank you in advance..
