IBM Db2 Database OCF Connector: Version 2.0.3


Removal of ORDER BY Clause in Default Metadata Extraction Queries

The ORDER BY clause has now been removed from the default Metadata extraction queries.

Processes subsequent to MDE ensure the extracted objects (Schema, Table, and Column) are mapped to the correct hierarchy. Therefore, it is redundant for the connector to fetch ordered items from the data sources. (AL-149896)

Fixed Issues

Metadata Extraction Fails

Metadata extraction fails with the following redundant error message:

MissingFormatArgumentException: Format specifier ‘%s

The connector has now modified the error handling to display appropriate error messages during MDE failure. (AL-147543)
