Processing JSON with DB2 and RPG

IBM has done some great things that allow DB2 to process JSON objects. This session shows you “Tips and Tricks” to make your life easier when you start working with JSON data. After a short discussion of the HTTP functions that have been added to SYSTOOLS and how they can be used with the JSON_TABLE Function, Jim shows the attendee how to work with the SYSTOOLS.HTTPGETCLOB and JSON_TABLE Functions to consume an API returning a JSON object. If you have tried using these functions many have problems writing the correct SQL/JSON path expressions to extract the data and represent it in a relational table. Jim will help the attendee understand this process with solid examples.

Learning Objectives

1. Developers needing clear examples of SQL/JSON path expressions with DB2

2. Improve developers understanding of SQL/JSON path expressions with DB2 and JSON
