Call REST API triggered from DB

Currently we use external script to call APIs on data in DB and write back the result.

Instead of using external script (Python, R, Node JS) to take data from the DB and call REST API and then write back the result to DB, it would be a great improvement to have REST API caller package in DB2 Warehouse on Cloud, like before DB2XML package, HTTPGETBLOB function.

It would be possible to call Watson APIs, like translator, understanding, NLC.  Also, it would speed up the whole process by reducing the steps.
