DB2 V8 z/OS Difference of BETWEEN and <= and =>
We are noticing that old dynamic queries that use the <= and => syntax
for a range of values is not using the index with the column. However,
if we change it to BETWEEN it does use the proper index. Has the
optimizer for V8 changed to prefer the BETWEEN syntax? (In prior
versions it favoured the <= and => syntax or treated them the same).
