DB2 enforcing business rules on data

15 January,2011 by Jack Vamvas

When designing data and related business rules, there are a number of concepts available to the DBA . Consider the following in

 Primary Key definition

Foreign key definitions

User-defined distinct data types.

Nulls-allowed columns

Not null columns.

Column value constraint rules.

Before and after triggers.  – (UPDATE,INSERT,DELETE)

Generated row change timestamps.

Distinct Data

Unique indexes.

Non-unique indexes

 In summary , these concepts serve a purpose – and can be used effectively to maintain business data. This must be weighed up against performance and maintenance considerations
