DB2 LUW: Comment on view problems


I have encountered several problems with comment on views.

  • The generation of the DDL is faulty with respect to the comment on the view itself.


    The correct syntax is 

    comment on table

     see comment statement

  • Even though the DDL generates a statement for the view comment, the view comment does not get displayed in the remarks field of the info tab


    12.1.5 does NOT show this behaviour

Please ignore the latter problem. It is none, just I did not reload the object tree and reopen the object again. Maybe one might to think about a less tedious way to refresh the information in in the info tab.

The refresh button of the info tab does not work.

Thanks Thiemo,

I will open a ticket and we'll have a look.




DbVisualizer 13.0.1 has just been released with a fix for this problem.

Easiest is that you open Help->Check for Update in DbVisualizer to perform the upgrade. An alternative is that you download from our website:
