Abstract
IBM Data Studio provides an integrated development environment that enables the development of data-centric applications. This eclipse-based set of development tools supports the entire IBM DB2 family. Data Studio supports the development of SQL and Java stored procedures as well as user-defined functions when used with DB2 for i.
Introduction

IBM Data Studio is the replacement product for the IBM DB2® Developer Workbench that was first introduced with DB2 Version 9. Data Studio supports the development of SQL and Java™ stored procedures as well as user-defined functions when used with DB2 for i servers or any other DB2 server. Even though DB2 for i supports user-defined functions and external stored procedures that are written in high-level languages such as RPG and COBOL, Data Studio does not support the creation of these objects on the IBM i platform. You can also use the Data Studio debugger to debug SQL stored procedures and user-defined functions that were created on a DB2 for i server.
