In a previous article titled "Maximize SQL Query Engine (SQE) Usage of Your DB2 Web Query Reports," I explained how you could utilize various techniques available on the System i to influence database optimization behavior for DB2 Web Query requests.

This tradition is continued with the latest version of DB2 for i drivers, which implement a host of JDBC 4.0 enhancements.
