In addition to the traditional access methods available for use with Db2 on Cloud (JDBC, CLI, ODBC), Db2 on Cloud also allows the use of RESTful calls to access data from the database. The advantage of using RESTful calls is that the client does not require any Db2 libraries or drivers – only the RESTful API library is required.
This workshop will take you through the steps of registering for a Db2 on Cloud service, setting up connection credentials, and then using a pre-configured system to access Db2 on Cloud using RESTful calls – without having to use any Db2 libraries. Some knowledge of Jupyter notebooks, Python programming, and of course, Db2, would be an asset, but not necessary.
Students should have their laptop but if not, they will get instructions on what to do afterwards.
