DB2 SQL and Application Programming is a 5 day course targeting the needs of programmers and developers writing applications that access data stored in the DB2 environment.
The presentation is an integrated mixture of lecture and workshop activities that introduce and reinforce the basic techniques and approaches to relational database technology as implemented in DB2. Topics covered include structure and manipulation of DB2 data, operational considerations in both on-line and batch environments; integrity; embedded programming techniques and preparation; and an introduction to performance analysis.
Material comprising the course is consistent with DB2 for z/OS Version 9. The workshop activities follow the classroom material and are designed for both topic reinforcement and practice. Programming topics are supported by workshops in both the on-line and batch environment, this includes precompiling, compiling, linking, and the various options of the DB2 BIND.
Programmers, application developers and computer analysts who are exposed to, or are required to perform the activities associated with application development and implementation in a DB2 environment.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Basic programming skills in the COBOL environment and familiarity with the z/OS environment and TSO/ISPF.
