I have seen many presentations about DB2 and BigData, and it seems that in version 10 there is a new functionality that allows to read directly in HDFS from DB2, and to submit a job in a Hadoop system.
I saw in the presentations the name of these functions implemented in Java
However, I cannot see any information in the InfoCenter. I looked for that in Google, but there is not any further information, just that they "exist". Even, in the last db2night show, they talk about these two functions.
I would like to take a look at the API, which is called "DB2 SQL API extended for BigData", but I do not know where to find it. Which other functions are available for Hadoop?
If some of you have some technical information (not only PowerPoint presentation), it would be great if you can share it.
