V7R3 of Db2 i introduced support for temporal tables. However, it is not possible for an end user to alter the system tables; such as QADBXREF / QADBIFLD, to be defined as temporal. Attempting to alter the table results in the following error message:
Message: [SQL0607] Operation not allowed on system table QADBXREF in QSYS. Cause . . . . . : The table or view QADBXREF in QSYS is a catalog or system table. Catalogs, system tables and system triggers cannot be changed or locked by the user.
Our software currently relies on the user "registering" tables to enable us to "capture" the record layout so we can process transactions from journal entries and map the journal entry data to the record layout. If we encounter a journal entry that indicates a change to the record layout we stop processing so that the user has to "re-register" the table with the updated record layout. This causes delay in processing that users wish to avoid.
