When a connection is made it would be very useful if it set up an array of features available. These features include information from the db2 license manager and include addition checks. For example, is ATS setup for the database. I would like to add to this list. e.g. with visual explain, a new UDF that must be setup.
Additional to this, menu items should have a new tag that checks if a feature is available and give several alternative, (1) low light item (2) hide from menu (3) perform an action alternate action which may be setup feature.
It would be nice to have this available in action scripts and may be even control what columns are displayed on a table.
This may be a way to enable ssh access when the instance is down. That is, feature for ssh access and feature for instance access. May even help with versions or tailoring for different database types. That is, menu item is shown if it is db2.
