A schema never get changed to a collection. Schema and collection are
identical. Both are containers that include (database) objects.
Schema is the SQL standard term , while collection was the original term
used from IBM for DB2.
When the SQL standard defined the container for holding data base objects as
SCHEMA, IBM added the term SCHEMA and appropriate creation commands to their
STRSQL has a prompt for the CREATE COLLECTION command but not for the CREATE
SCHEMA command. Since STRSQL is stabilized, I assume the prompt for the
CREATE SCHEMA will never be included.

Betreff: DB2 terminology
When did "schema" get changed to "collection"? Why?
It looks like the STRSQL screens will accept either.
