IBM Course Code: CL100
This course enables you to acquire the skills necessary to produce application programs that manipulate DB2 databases. Emphasis is on embedding Structured Query Language (SQL) statements and preparing programs for execution.
What You'll Learn
- Incorporate static SQL statements in an application program
- Prepare the program for execution
- Validate execution results are correct
- Produce code to support multiple rows being returned from the database manager using cursors
- Identify considerations regarding units of work concurrency, and restart of programs
- Identify differences between static and dynamic SQL
- Provide test data for applications
- Discuss program and DB2 options relative to performance of static SQL
Who Needs to Attend
This basic course is for Application programmers who need to write embedded SQL programs in COBOL or PL/I (on z/OS) or in C language (on Linux, UNIX, and Windows).
Prior to attending this course, you should already have experience with one of the supported programming languages:
- COBOL or PL/I for z/OS, or
- C language for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
You are also expected to already be able to construct and use SQL statements.
