The bind process reads the DBRM that was created in the precompile and prepares an access path to the data. This access path, along with the consistency token, is stored in the DB2 catalog as a Package. Every Package is bound into a Package List, or Collection. The name of the Collection is specified by the PACKAGE parameter. A Collection is a group of Packages that are included in one or more Plans. The QUALIFIER parameter of the bind is used to direct the SQL to the specific set of DB2 objects (tables,views, aliases or synonyms) qualified by this name.
