DB2 UDB Application Design for Performance for UNIX and Windows Training

This course is designed to present some application design topics that can improve performance, using DB2 for UNIX and WINDOWS. SQL statements will be used to create objects for application design and development. Design issues of referential Integrity, table check constraints, generated columns, user defined data types, functions, stored procedures and triggers will be reviewed. Advanced techniques for using SQL will be applied in workshops. Design issues will be considered which effect concurrency, integrity and performance. Basic UDB administration functions will be reviewed and some DB2 utilities will be used.

  After completing this course the student should be able to:
  • create relational objects for application development.
  • Use advanced SQL queries to access and manipulate data on DB2 tables.
  • Review and use different methods of improving performance.
  • Understand the DB2 locking strategy for improving concurrency and maintaining data integrity..
  • Use IMPORT, EXPORT and LOAD utilities to manipulate data.
Target Audience:
  Application developers and designers.
  • Relevant Operating Systems experience.
  • Programming experience (basic skills).
  • Previous experience with relational database systems and SQL.
  Classroom instruction and review with hands-on workshops.
  Three days.
