Moving your schema objects to production

We have some tables created by SQL in a development box. How can we move these tables with data into another box (Production)?
The preferred method of moving your schema objects to production is to re-run your SQL creation scripts (written in DDL). If this is not feasible (for instance if objects in development contain massive amounts of data), we recommend using the save/restore method. Issue the SAVLIB command from the source environment and RSTLIB to production environment, followed by manually resetting the journal information. This method is explained in detail in the Redbook, "Modernizing IBM eServer iSeries Data Access - A Roadmap Cornerstone" (SG24-6393-00).
