In this chapter we took a look at the database objects in DB2: what they are, how they are
created and how to use them. We introduced database schemas and compared them with
the new public synonyms, as well as how public synonyms compare to private synonyms.

Next, we discussed tables and their elements in depth: data types (both built-in and user-
defined), identity columns, sequence objects, and global temporary tables. This was
followed by looking at views, indexes and using the Design Advisor GUI to improve the
accessibility and retrievabliity of the data inside a table.

Finally, we examined referential integrity to define relationships between tables, and the
new concept of schema evolution which allows for data objects to be changed without
unnecessary complication.
