Today SQL is not only used for ad-hoc queries, but replaces more and more native I/O and must be used in composition with all programming languages other than RPG and COBOL. Moving business logic into data base is one of the main goals when we talk about application modernization. The first step for realizing this goal is the ultimate use of the SQL SELECT statement which may be much more powerful than you can imagine. Currently SQL provides around 180 scalar functions and 30 aggregate functions. Besides various ways of joining tables or views, data from multiple tables can be merged. All kinds of sub- and grand totals can be built. Recursive Common Table Expressions and hierarchical query clauses allow recursive data (such as bill of materials or flight plans) to be analyzed. Since release 7.2 TR 1 regular expressions can be used. Release 7.3 offers a new range of OLAP-Functions … In this workshop you will learn multiple ways for solving your requirements by using a single SQL Select Statement.
