Title: Advanced SQL

SQL has evolved into a complex programming language that is extremely feature rich. Many developments have created quite a number of choices for adding complexity into an application via SQL. Classic applications, service-oriented applications, web applications, data warehouses, messaging systems, and high volume transaction based systems can all benefit from new features built into recent releases of DB2. This presentation will address many of the more complex aspects of SQL coding. Examples of complex SQL in different formulations are shown to demonstrate those that they perform efficiently versus those that perform in a less efficient manner. Presented here are the more advanced examples of subqueries, joins, table expressions, CASE expressions, UDFs, table functions, SQL recursive processing, relational division, OLAP specification, SQL/XML, and many other features of the DB2 family. There are many examples taken from real systems, and an emphasis is made on the proper use of each technique for performance.

Here is a sample of the topics that will be presented during Dan's session.
In addition, comparisons of coding techniques will be made in an effort to help the student understand which technique is appropriate in various circumstances when performance is the main concern. Insight will be given into the functionality of the DB2 optimizer and query transformation.
