Actually tablespace is an LDS and an index is also an LDS . How these
two are correlated(for eg: if I delete a table the index is also deleted)
how this happens?

Hello,

What you are asking about is the IBM design of DB2. These are not something dba/programmer/etc people have any control over.

There is no good reason for these - it is just they way db2 was implemented.

DB2 is designed to only work on "tables" and the other types ov files are not db2 tables. . .

If this is not what you wanted, please let us know.

If you don't like the way DB2 operates you can always write your own version.
