Versioned stored procedures in DB2 for z/OS are not supported by WMB/IIB

Versions of Native SQL stored procedures were introduced with version 9 of DB2 on Z. However, when I use the WMB/IIB to call a Native SQL stored procedure that is versioned, it reports to me that I am using an overloaded stored procedure. So, Versioned Native SQL stored procedures are not supported by WMB/IIB. This is a barrier to me exploiting this feature in DB2 for Z.

    RFE Review. As part of our policy for regularly reassessing aged RFEs we have recently discussed this enhancement request again, and unfortunately on this occasion it has been decided that we won't be taking this idea further forward. Having received only 3 votes over its 8 year lifespan, I'm afraid we are unable to prioritise action on this item at this time. Status of RFE is closed.

    RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been in the status of Under Consideration. We agree this enhancement would improve the product. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.

    Also having the same problem in V10. DB2 does not support overloaded stored procs and this tool is failing when I have 2 versions of the same stored procedure, both with the same number of parms, and only one is active in DB2. I am forced to drop the original version of the stored proc which defeats the purpose of creating the second version because I cannot fail back to the original, I have to drop the new and recreate the original, if the application runs into a problem.

    My understanding of overloaded stored procs is that more then one can be active and they each have to have a different number of parameters.

    It wouldn't seem like it would require much effort to add a condition to the catalog query to only return active entries.
