    1. Fundamentals of Db2
      • Examine the architecture and functionality of Db2.
      • The Db2 components and using DDL: Data Definition Language to create objects.
      • Use DDL to create components including a database, tablespace, tables, views, and indexes.
    2. Structured Query Language
      • Use the SPUFI and other IBM tools to execute DDL and DML.
      • Configure the SPUFI tool.
      • Compile a COBOL program.
      • Develop a COBOL program that retrieves values from a table and handles exceptions.
    3. Retrieval and Update Operations
      • Code and execute basic queries for retrieving data.
      • Become familiar with and apply the functionality of cursors to programming.
      • Create several queries for retrieving data from existing tables.
      • Modify a program that opens a cursor and fetches rows from the cursor.
      • Perform basic joins on multiple tables.
      • Join data from two tables using an inner join and a full outer join.
    4. SQL Functions
      • Code queries using Db2 built-in functions and mathematical expressions.
      • Code and execute SQL for performing arithmetic on data using functions and constants.
    5. Table and View Design
      • Execute a CREATE TABLE with a primary key and associated CREATE INDEX.
    6. Embedded Retrieval and Update Operations

      • Insert a single row and perform a multiple row insert.
      • Delete a single row.
    7. Db2 Architecture
      • List the characteristics of the different isolation levels.
    8. Locking
      • Code programs implementing locking and monitor locks on Db2 tables.
      • Execute two programs that will lock each other out.
      • Monitor the locks.
      • Manage the lock attributes and the lock duration using Db2 system commands.
    9. Performance
      • Modify query predicates to improve performance by using the indexes or minimizing sorts.
    10. EXPLAIN Command
      • Given a number of queries, run the EXPLAIN and review the PLAN_TABLE.
    11. Query Management Facility
      • Navigate the QMF panels and create a saved report.
      • Create a query and modify the default report.
      • Perform break processing and save the report and its associated data.
