Currently, we have either the DDL or GEN commands to view the object definition. We would like GEN to be online (currently batch only) or have a new command. The action should produce the data in an online format (temporary dataset) for viewing or copying.
This would be similar to BMC's HDDL command in BMC Catalog Manager.
This command should provide the object and all dependents. For example, HDDL on a table will give you the table DDL, indexes, comments, foreign keys, etc.
Why is it useful?
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All users of IBM Db2 Administration Tool|
How should it work?
|Priority Justification||GEN command is batch only and very cumbersome when needing to look at many objects at once.|
