Preparing Stored Procedures

The following are high level tasks that must be completed before a stored procedure can be run on a DB2 LUW Server:

  1. Prepare the application according to your embedded SQL documentation for creating stored procedure.
  2. Define the stored procedure to the DB2 LUW Server. See Defining Stored Procedures under DB2 LUW.
  3. Place the stored procedure module on the DB2 LUW Server machine in a location specified in the CREATE PROCEDURE statement. If not specified, the default location is the function subdirectory under sqllib in the home directory of your DB2 LUW instance.
Note: IBM provides specific documentation on preparing stored procedures. Look in your IBM documentation for information on creating external routines and developing user-defined routines.
