method_name
The name of the method whose most recent SQL create text is to be reported.
data_type
UDT_name
The data type parameters, including UDTs, that uniquely identify an overloaded method name.

Example: SHOW METHOD

The following examples show valid cases of SHOW METHOD.

  • This example reports the SQL create text for a method that has the specific method name polygon_mbr.
         SHOW SPECIFIC METHOD SYSUDTLIB.polygon_mbr;
  • This example reports the SQL create text for a method that has the name polygon_mbr. Note that the method has no parameters, so no parameter data type list is specified.
         SHOW METHOD SYSUDTLIB.area() FOR circle;
  • This example reports the SQL create text for a method that has the name in_state and is associated with the UDT named circle. To be distinguished from another method definition on circle named in_state, the specification includes the parameter data type list for the method.
         SHOW METHOD in_state(CHAR(2)) FOR address;
