IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Clients

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

If you have not registered on this portal please register at http://ibm.biz/IBM-Data-and-AI-Portal-Register . To complete registration you will need to open the email you will receive from Aha to confirm your identity.

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Federation for XML data type

Description

Federation queries (select statements) against an Oracle server are failing if the Oracle table has an XMLTYPE column. Even a select count(*) against these tables fails. Tables in the same Oracle server that do NOT have XMLTYPE columns can be selected without issue.

The selects we are using do not use nicknames, but rather the three part naming scheme (federation server name, schema name, table name).

Are XMLTYPE columns supported in Federation? I could not find anything in documentation that talks about XMLTYPE columns?
What about CLOB or BLOB columns?

Here is the db2level.
[bluadmin@node0105-fab: ~]$ db2level
DB21085I This instance or install (instance name, where applicable:
"db2inst1") uses "64" bits and DB2 code release "SQL11019" with level identifier "020A010F".
Informational tokens are "DB2 v11.1.9.0", "special_39283",
"DYN1907150900PPCLE_39283", and Fix Pack "0".
Product is installed at "/opt/ibm/db2/V11.1.0.0"

The diaglog shows minimal information, just 2 entries.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? As a customer I get benefited with IIAS migration from Netezza. Federation from Fluid Query
How should it work?

In Netezza we use IBM Fluid query and have configuration with Oracle and Sql Server to Netezza. There are few tables in Oracle system with XML data type. We can't change these XML data types as they have dependency.

We are migrating from Netezza to IIAS. In place of Fluid Query, we are using Federation. We determined that Federation is not supporting XML data type columns. We are encountering issues with migration now.

We need an enhancement for federation to support XML datatypes on IIAS.

Hi,

 

Unfortunately federation server does not support xml type for Oracle.

Please see at the following link about default forward type mappings for

Oracle which indicated which types does Federation Server support:
