DB2 for the COBOL Programmer


This course focuses right from the start on what you need to know to access and process DB2 data in your application programs using embedded SQL.

You will learn:

  • Critical DB2 concepts that let you understand how DB2 works so you can program more easily and logically
  • Basic DB2 coding features you’ll use in every program you write
  • Use features like outer joins and the explicit syntax for inner joins that simplify your coding
  • Work with column functions, scalar functions, and subqueries to manipulate DB2 data
  • Handle the complications caused by variable-length data and null values in DB2 tables
  • Use error handling techniques and ROLLBACK to protect DB2 data
  • Why program efficiency is vital under DB2…and how to use the locking features right so you don’t tie up the whole system
  • Use SPUFI and QMF to create the test tables you need to debug your programs
  • Develop DB2 programs interactively (using DB2I, a TSO facility) or in batch
