Session title: Db2 12 for z/OS, Continuous Delivery, Function Levels and Application Compatibility (APPLCOMPAT)
Session abstract: Db2 12 for z/OS continuous delivery means new capabilities are added to your Db2 environment as you apply maintenance. There is a lot of flexibility in how you manage the introduction of some of those capabilities to your applications. “A lot of flexibility” also means a lot of choices.
This session will discuss approaches and recommendations to making those choices, especially setting APPLCOMPAT in DSNZPARM and in various packages.
