  1. <rename_view_statement> ::=
      RENAME VIEW <old_table_name> TO <new_table_name>
    <old_table_name> ::=
    <new_table_name> ::=
End of the code.

If a schema name is not specified in the table name, the current schema is used. The table old_table_name must be a view table. The current database user must be the owner of the view table and must have the CREATEIN privilege for the schema identified by new_table_name.

The new table name must not already be assigned to a base or view table or a private synonym in the schema identified by new_table_name.

The CREATE VIEW statement of the old_table_name view table is adapted to the new name. The result of this adaptation can be retrieved from the table DOMAIN.VIEWDEFS.

The definitions of view tables based on the old_table_name are adapted to the new name.
