External trigger on DB2 V7.2 for Linux

Hi all, I'm new on DB2 external triggers  and external stored procedures, I have to implement a trigger that calls an external (C++) "program". Im current using DB2 7.2 on a Linux (Suse 9.0). Can anyone give a brief description on how can I implement that and also tell me if I can do that using this plataform I just mentioned ?
Im really  tied to the plataform so please restrict your comments to that. I read some documents about external triggers but Im not sure that it works on V7.1, I also read some paper about  external stored procedures and I think it should also work if I call the external SP from a "normal" trigger. Can anyone adivise me on that ?

Thanks a lot,

DB2 supports stored procedures in C/C++.  You should be able to write the procedure in C and then tie it to a conventional trigger.  When the trigger fires, execute the C-based stored procedure.
