Integrate the latest image-processing capabilities with your images stored in IBM® DB2® Universal Database™ (DB2 UDB). This article shows you a method for integrating a third-party image processing library such as ImageMagick™ with DB2 UDB to provide enhanced functionality to manage and process still images directly inside a DB2 UDB database system. It describes the steps to implement the user-defined functions that connect DB2 to the library and shows how to compile and link everything together. In the end, you will have a completed a still image extension for DB2 based on that library. Code samples included.
