DB2 Incremental Delete

Ever have to delete a lot of records from a table in DB2 and can’t truncate, but you keep filling the transaction log? One way of solving the problem without having to manually update ranges of values in a where clause is to do an incremental delete in a stored proc. Here’s an example/template to get you started…


WHILE EXISTS (  SELECT  ITEM_ID 
		FROM    XX.TABLE
		WHERE   SOMETHING_NB = 1
		FETCH FIRST 1 ROWS ONLY )
DO
	DELETE FROM 
		(SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER() AS ROW_NB
		FROM    XX.TABLE
		WHERE   SOMETHING_NB = 1
		FETCH FIRST 20000 ROWS ONLY)
	WHERE ROW_NB <= 20000;
	
	IF ((L_SQLCODE_NB <> 0) AND (L_SQLCODE_NB <> 100)) THEN
		SIGNAL SQLSTATE '20003' SET MESSAGE_TEXT = 'Error deleting records';
	END IF; 
	
	COMMIT;
END WHILE;

Happy birthday America

As I sit here watching “The Patriot” I can’t help but be appreciative of all those who have sacrificed for the dream and reality that is America. Those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and those who left their families – if even for a short time – in service of a cause they considered greater than themselves.

In salute of all the Patriots: Abe Lincoln, Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, John Adams, Sam Adams, Ben Franklin, Teddy Roosevelt, George Patton, General Sherman, General Grant, FDR, those who will never be known (the unknown soldiers), and many many more I am ever grateful to have been born in this wonderful Land of Opportunity.

As a parent, I haven’t the luxury of principles. I have long feared that my sins will come back to haunt me – and the weight is more than I can bare.

Thank you again to all who have sacrificed so that we may pursue happiness.

Resolving Ant javac “class file has wrong version” issues

Ever run an ANT build in eclipse and it works just fine, but as soon as you run it outside of eclipse you get something like…

class file has wrong version 51.0, should be 49.0

The issue is likely that you need to “fork” in your javac task…

Before (with error)

javac srcdir="${build.path}" 
   verbose="true" 
   includeantruntime="false" 
   includejavaruntime="false"

After (no error)

javac srcdir="${build.path}" 
   verbose="true" 
   includeantruntime="false" 
   includejavaruntime="false" 
   fork="yes"

Hopefully this can save you about 2 hours some day!
