Check the Data Dictionary Manual for info about IndexType:

     P (Nonpartitioned Primary)
     Q (Partitioned Primary)
     S (Secondary)
     J (join index)
     N (hash index)
     K (primary key)
     U (unique constraint)
     V (value ordered secondary)
     H (hash ordered ALL covering secondary)
     O (valued ordered ALL covering secondary)
     I (ordering column of a composite secondary index)
     M (Multi-Column Statistics)
     1 (field1 column of a join or hash index)
     2 (field2 column of a join or hash index)


Forget about dbc.indexes to count Join Indexes, you'll never succeed :-)

It's easy if you use dbc.tables.TableKind instead:

     'I' -> Join Index
     'N' -> Hash Index
