Pinned topic DB2 Express-C 9.7 available for download

‏2009-06-19T15:54:07Z |
DB2 9.7 is out, and with it DB2 Express-C 9.7:


md5 checksums

In addition to performance improvements, there are new features:
  • New data types such as NUMBER, VARCHAR2, etc.
  • Easier casting between data types
  • Default parameter values and assignment by name
  • Boolean, cursor, row and array data type support in procedures
  • ROWNUM() and ROWID()
  • Improved locking for better concurrency
  • Ability to recompile statements without parameter markers
  • Ability to re-use old access plans across fixpack updates
  • More functions for string and date manipulation
  • Better Python support for DB2

Cheers,

        What are the values for logfilsz, logprimary and logsecond? .. You would have tune these three parameters to get rid of "transaction log full error" ..
        db2diag.log is found in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IBM\DB2\db-copy-name\DB2

            "i am not able to see DB2 instance?" not sure what do you mean by this. If you want to see if instance is created, check db2ilist output.

            The default values may not be able to process a 1GB file and that is why you are getting that message. Increase it and then try inserting 1 GB file.

      Hi Harri,

      Just to update on that, the Debian packages are being prepared. They will be released as soon as some Ubuntu compatibility issues are resolved.

      Hi Harri,
      The debians were compiled and are under QA by canonical.

      As soon as they finish the QA, we will release the debians.
      Best Regards,

        Hi Andre! Has Canonical given a schedule for the QA process?

        Hi Daniel & Shawn,

        We are working on the Mac OS X release of DB2 9.7, but it will be several months before it is available. There is a number of other DB2-related projects also in the works.

          Excellent. Do you know if the Mac version will be a full release or another beta?

          Thanks :)

          Any feedback would be nice.

    Hi,
    I´ve downloaded DB2 Express-C 9.7 for Windows two times and in both there´s an error:
    Extracting CONT0017.cab
    bad CRC e2f22463 (should be 2f04a00c)
    Since this file is corrupted, is there a way of sending it to me, or a way for me to get it?

    Thanks
