do it. However controversial, that's a very interesting reading. It's nice to doubt the basics once in a while, sometimes even the basics get out-of-date.

Another helpful updateable view:

CREATE VIEW STINKY_STUFF
AS
SELECT * FROM REFRIGERATOR WHERE SELL_BY < CURRENT DATE;

DELETE FROM STINKY_STUFF; there is no WHERE cluase and that's OK

P.S. there are 2 more articles on updateable views on DB2 Developers Domain
