As many of you know IBM has changed the products that come in the DB2 Accessories Suite.
At one point we had the DB2 Management Clients Package which contained Visual Explain and Control Center, and anything that would be installed on your desktop.
Starting in DB2 9 for z/OS we changed it to the DB2 Accessories Suite which included things like Optimization Service Center, OmniFind Text search, and Spatial Support. Within that same release we deprecated OSC, and with DB2 10 for z/OS the Accessories Suite included only the spatial support and international Unicode support (ICU).
The link below breaks down which products appear in which release of the Accessories Suite, and relates it to the appropriate release of DB2.
