Update to support Oracle and other DB Vendors

In the past IBM provided the script with B2B Integrator to facilitate index reorgs with MySQL DBs. Several companies such as my own will only implement vendor scripts for index reorgs. Can IBM update that script and supply it.

Simplify DB maintenance

    I do certainly hope that this is something that is going to happen. We have been fighting for years to try to get our DBA group to do some sort of maintenance on the SB2Bi application database above the standard oracle nightly maintenance. However the great debate on weather Index Reorgs are necessary has been ongoing for years amongst DBAs. Oracle says it is not necessary, vendors say it is (especially for OLTP apps like SB2Bi), I personally have seen the positive effects of implementing a regular Index Reorg plan when I was at CoEnterprise before I came to PNC. But like some of my previous clients when I worked at CoE some DBAs would NOT implement unless the vendor supplied. Making this script useful again and for more than MySQL would put the power into the hands of the application owner and out of the DBAs.
