I am fairly new to DB2 world and started loving it. Even when i know SQL as such, i am unaware of code installation steps (& procedure) using Changeman (Version mgmt tool).
Please help me (if possible) on some of these questions (Thanks!) -
1. i am familiar with all the sql statements to create new tables in db2. I need to create the tables in test and then move them into production. Can somebody help me on the steps to follow. I guess i can create tables using internal DB2 Tool (qmf or spufi, Do i need DBA for creating tables in test or not ??)
2. I am currently coding DB2-cobol program to retrieve fields from new tables (Which i would create in step 1) -
My question is - Do i need to include copybook (which include DCLGEN statements) in the Changeman package (Version Control tool)
3. I guess i need to precompile the program in changeman (ver. control) [using DB2 Precompile option - YES] to create a DBRM. How can i bind the sql statements coded in the program. Is it something i am missing ?? Any steps which i should be knowing ??
Please respond as your suggestions would be of great help to me. You guys are doing great job helping naive DB2 programmers like me. Thanks allot for your time!!
