The "Ah ha" moment with pureQuery

Just in case you are also of the impression that the pureQuery APIs must replace existing JDBC, Spring, Hibernate, etc. calls to the database, the answer is no. The conversion from dynamic to static SQL using client optimization, does not require any changes to your application. Plain old JDBC calls can remain in your programs and with pureQuery Runtime, we can capture the SQL and it can be statically bound to DB2 (z/OS or LUW). This explanation usually creates the "Ah ha" moment.
So, while pondering this, I have come up with a new way to explain pureQuery. I now plan to hold off introducing the APIs until after I finish talking about client optimization and the great capabilities you get when you use client optimization:
Then, after a deep breath and a new title slide, I plan to talk more about ORM frameworks and our pureQuery APIs. (By the way, if you're curious about how pureQuery relates to ORM frameworks, check out Rafael's ChannelDB2 video.)
Hopefully the "Ah ha" moments won't get delayed any more. :-)
