Is there any way to do a full text indexing in DB2/400? I have a table that is mainly text and I want to query it the same way a knowledge base does.
DB2 UDB Text Extenders, which are a part of the DB2 UDB for Extenders LPP introduced in V5R1, provide the ability to perform advanced text searches. Special index types are used by the DB2 Text Extenders to enable these advanced text searches to run quickly.
You can find an online education module on the DB2 UDB Extenders for iSeries product here.
The manual for DB2 Text Extenders can be found here.
