The BookManager format is being discontinued. We knew it was coming, but now for DB2 Version 10 the Bookmanager format is no longer available.
IBM® is discontinuing the BookManager® format as part of an ongoing effort to deliver the best possible information experience to our customers. IBM is optimizing the DB2® for z/OS® information for viewing in the information center.
The BookManager books will continue to be provided for DB2 UDB for z/OS Version 8 and DB2 Version 9.1 for z/OS; however, IBM is not delivering BookManager books with DB2 Version 10 for z/OS. Instead, you can find the Information Management Software for z/OS Solutions Information Center at the following website: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/imzic.
The information center includes all of the information that you are used to seeing in BookManager and PDF, plus many improved features for finding and viewing the information that you need. To help your transition from BookManager to the information center, see the following resources:
