Agenda for October 5th, 2005
8:30 - 9:00 Breakfast , Compliments of Computer Associates
9:00 - 10:30 Table Partitioning with v8 of DB2 for z/OS
Presenter: Phil Grainger, Computer Associates International
Version 8 of DB2 for z/OS brings us Table Based Partitioning.
What is it? When would I use it? Why do I care? are just some
of the questions answered by this session. Starting from the
existing index-based partitioning we will look at how table
based partitioning differs and also look at some of the
"accidents waiting to happen"
10:30 - 10:45 Break
10:45 - 11:45 Scrolling, Scrolling, Scrolling
Presenter: Phil Grainger, Computer Associates International
We seem to have had scrollable cursors for ages, but in reality
it's only been since version 6 on the z/OS platform. This
presentation looks at the evolution of scrollable cursors over
the last few years and considers some things that are still
missing. Although aimed at application developers, there will
be information here of interest to DBAs too
11:45 - 12:30 Lunch, Compliments of Computer Associates
12:30 – 2:00 DB2 Utilities for Application Developers
Presenter: Phil Grainger, Computer Associates International
DB2 utilities are normally kept secret by database
administrators. This is a shame as there are many things that
application developers could use them for. This presentation
looks at some of the tasks that can be performed with the IBM
or ISV utilities to make application developments life simpler.
NOTE. Apart from the IBM utility names, NO ISV utilities are
named in this presentation - only outline functionality
2:00 - 2:15 Closing
