Is there any way to trigger a java application from DB2 while inserting one record?

Thanks,

Viswa,
No. The database cannot trigger something on the app server.

DB2 has supported java triggers since version 5.2. You can create a trigger that does what you'd like - but you're best off keeping it simple (if you want heavy stuff done, use the trigger to put a message in a queue - or a "queue" table that the other process polls and processes.

Get it>?

Dana,
That's interesting. So you compile the java program on the db2 server and the trigger calls it?
