IBM will host a Virtual Db2 for z/OS: REST and Hybrid Cloud Wildfire Workshop December 5 – 6, 2023.

This event will be both presentation and hands-on labs. 


This no-charge workshop enables customers to gain an understanding of how to leverage Db2 Native REST services in a hybrid cloud environment using RESTful APIs. Attendees will be provided with a cloud-based virtual lab environment to learn how quickly and easily RESTful APIs can be created using z/OS Connect and mapped to Db2 Native REST services.

Lab Exercises:

Lab Exercise 1 – Managing and executing Db2 Native REST Services that leverage a Stored Procedure or a SQL statement to retrieve Db2 data. Lab Exercise 2 – Creating an API using z/OS Connect. In this exercise attendees will use one of the Db2 REST services created in lab exercise 1 as input to the z/OS Connect tooling to build and test a fully RESTful API.


The audience is architects, database administrators, application developers, and other decision influencers interested in creating RESTful APIs using Db2 for z/OS SQL statements and stored procedures.
