Agenda for Oct 3, 2005
8:30 - 9:00 Breakfast – sponsored by CA

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 - 12:00 Closing
