Embedded Structured Query language in Java (SQLJ) support
SQLJ is a set of programming extensions that allow a programmer, using the Java programming language, to embed statements that provide SQL (Structured Query Language) database requests.
Advantages of developing applications with SQLJ include improved performance and a shorter, more efficient development cycle...
- You improve performance by using static SQL statements.
- You reduce the development cycle because:
- You write less code with the simpler SQLJ syntax, which reduces the number of lines of code required to execute statements, and to set and retrieve parameters.
- You detect programming errors earlier in the development phase with the onlinecheck function, which performs data type and schema validation.
You might consider using SQLJ in situations where dynamic SQL is not needed, and where applications use DB2 as the backend database.
