This is the DDL of the table KL11. KL11FLD is the column that contains
those other tables I need access to.
Create Table KL11 (
I do not know what kind of encoding it uses and which IBM i procedure is
used to get those other tables stored. My question: Depending on this
(IBM i) procedure, would an integration via IBM ESB automate
encoding/decoding if I integrate via REST instead and leave
serialization to the ESB?

There is within the capabilities of DDS nothing that I can think of that would equate to a "serialized table" which is why we need to see what you are talking about and also to know what you are trying to extract.

Yes, I know and accessed via JDBC to a DDS organized DB2 earlier. It's
the first time I encounter such a serialization pattern. I was told this
yields from the 80ies, where DBMS was limited in I/O access.
