TechTip: Do You Understand the DB2 for i Environment Settings?

Learn how to configure a DB2 for i SQL session, and discover the essential differences between DB2 for i and other relational databases.

Written by Michael Sansoterra

There are many non-IBM i developers out there who have opportunities to develop applications that interact with the i and its DB2 data store (aka AS/400, iSeries, i5, System i). These developers are many and varied and can include .NET and Java developers, Visual Basic and VBA developers, and Web and SQL developers of many stripes. Generally, these folks already have some level of experience with SQL. Basic SQL is generally portable among databases, but because of the unique nature of DB2 for i, developers need to understand some introductory concepts before tackling a DB2 for i project. This TechTip introduces a few important concepts essential for the i SQL environment.
