SYSTOOLS is a set of DB2® for IBM® i supplied examples and tools.
SYSTOOLS is the name of a Database supplied schema (library). SYSTOOLS differs from other Db2 for i supplied schemas (QSYS, QSYS2, SYSIBM, and SYSIBMADM) in that it is not part of the default system path. As general purpose useful tools or examples are built by IBM, they are considered for inclusion within SYSTOOLS. SYSTOOLS provides a wider audience with the opportunity to extract value from the tools.
It is the intention of IBM to add content dynamically to SYSTOOLS, either on base releases or through PTFs for field releases. A best practice for customers who are interested in such tools would be to periodically review the contents of SYSTOOLS.
