I think he wants to do something like

select *
from server1.lib1.tab1
join server2.lib2.tab2

In which case, no nothing has really changed.

The exception is that you can now do
create table locallib.localtbl
as (select * from remotesvr.remotelib.remotetbl)

directing within DB2 for i, ARDgate not needed.
