Shape the future of IBM!
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Post your ideas
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notifications on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Database Interface Designer should take care of all character sets, and not only the obsolete ones
Currently (in 184.108.40.206 and earlier), Database Interface Designer cannot be told to use character sets other than the "historic" ones. It is of course possible to convert the type trees later, but would be better not to have to.
ORACLE adapter cannot take benefit of DEFAULT values
We have maps which need to be able to use the DEFAULT value for some columnes, based on business rules. At the moment, there's no way to use the DEFAULT values, and a DEFAULT ON NULL does not solve all our issues.
