Okay, I know that it is Halloween in many parts of the globe, but it is also the release date for DB2 9.5 for Linux, UNIX, Windows and IBM Data Studio v1.1.
Today, I presented on the topic of Database Application Development -including how IBM Data Studio can improve database developer productivity. The conference was well attended and well organized by the Guide Share Europe non-profit group in the UK.
IBM Data Studio v1.1 is now available for download.
The IBM Data Studio v1.1 the web download is non-warranted and free (or should I say complimentary).
Here are just a few of the features available in this productivity tool for architects, developers, and DBAs alike:
- pureQuery feature provides a common query API that lets you access relational databases and in-memory Java collections with a single interface: standard SQL. Using pureQuery functionality in a Java project, you can bridge the divide between relational data and Java applications.
- Data Web Services (DWS) feature can be more easily evaluated using a new optionally installed IBM WebSphere Application Server Community Edition v1.1
- Enhanced database object management including privilege management
- Customizable routine debugging for SQL PL and JDBC/SQLJ procedures
- Improved query management for SQL and XQuery
- Working with pureXML database, Data Studio has supporting tools for XML docs, XML Schemas, XSLTs
- Support for DB2 (all platforms) and Informix Dynamic Server (IDS)
