LUW - Any support for GUIDs in DB2?
Hi all,

I've just checked the online doco, and can't see hide nor hair of GUID datatype support in DB2 v8 for Linux/Unix/Windoze. We'd REALLY like to know if anyone has any ideas, or has spotted something I'm missing (and no, char(16) is not a substitute we can use). Is there something coming in v9?

Thanks in advance for any info.
