This book published in May this year, just in time for IDUG Denver, and for the first time, will publish under the IBM Press imprint:
DB2 Developer's Guide is the best source for on-the-job information on programming and administering DB2 on IBM z/OS mainframes. Now, three-time (or is it 4 times now?) IBM Champion Craig S. Mullins has thoroughly updated this classic for DB2 v9 and v10. Craig fully covers new DB2 innovations including temporal database support; hashing; universal tablespaces; pureXML; performance, security and governance improvements; new data types, and much more.
Using current versions of DB2 for z/OS, readers will learn how to:
- Build better databases and applications for CICS, IMS, batch, CAF, and RRSAF
- Write proficient, code-optimized DB2 SQL
- Implement efficient dynamic and static SQL applications
- Use binding and rebinding to optimize applications
- Efficiently create, administer, and manage DB2 databases and applications
- Design, build, and populate efficient DB2 database structures for online, batch, and data warehousing
- Improve the performance of DB2 subsystems, databases, utilities, programs, and SQL stat
DB2 Developer's Guide, Sixth Edition builds on the unique approach that has made previous editions so valuable. It combines:
- Condensed, easy-to-read coverage of all essential topics: information otherwise scattered through dozens of documents
- Detailed discussions of crucial details within each topic
- Expert, field-tested implementation advice
- Sensible examples
