7:00pm: The SQL Procedures Language in a Nutshell

Ted Holt
Profound Logic Software

Presentation Description

It seems a new programming language sprouts up every week, and each one has its share of evangelists, telling you to learn their language next. Maybe your next language should be one that was designed for databases and is already on your system.
The SQL Procedures Language is a database-oriented programming language that offers several benefits to IBM i professionals.

* SQL PL is an easy and powerful interface to the database.
* SQL PL is ideal for data-centric information systems.
* SQL PL builds functions, triggers, stored procedures, and dynamic compound statements.
* SQL PL runs on all DB2 platforms, not just DB2 for i.

In this session, Ted Holt presents an overview of SQL PL. You will get a tour of the syntax of the language and learn how to put it to work on your system.
