Db2 Recursive SQL in the Real World
Daniel Luksetich
You can find a ton of articles about recursive SQL dating back as early as 2004, but for this article I was asked to provide actual real-world situations where recursive SQL was put to use. In all of the situations it was a great success! First, however, a refresher. Recursive SQL in Db2 is enabled with a self-referencing common table expression. A common table expression is like a temporary view used for the duration of a SQL statement.
Call for Abstracts Extended
The deadline to submit your presentation ideas for our conference in Rotterdam has been extended to April 5, 2019. Hurry; that's only two days away.
