Session title: Are you happy or are you still deprecated?

Session abstract: Db2 has grown a lot over the years and, partly due to this, it carries around a ton of old baggage. It is definitely the right time to start crawling through the Db2 catalog and review any and all of the “deprecated” objects that are hanging around still nailed to their perches!

Presentation Outline:

  1. What’s a “deprecated” object?
  2. Are they going to hurt me?
  3. How do I find them?
  4. How do I get rid of them?
