Pinned topic Download DB2 Express-C 10.5

‏2013-06-17T19:27:35Z |


DB2 Express-C 10.5 is now available for download. Express-C is the free edition of the DB2 database.

Unlike the competitor express offerings, DB2 Express-C does not impose any limit on the size of database. The new DB2 Express-C 10.5 release also relaxes its memory restriction by 400%. It will now use up to 16GB of memory.

DB2 Express-C can handle database of any size, it can be used in production, and it can be redistributed with your applications.

Next steps

    I understand that Oracle System Modules (e.g. DBMS_UTILITY) are not available in DB2 Express-C -  See:

    http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v9r7/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.db2.luw.apdv.plsql.doc%2Fdoc%2Fc0053911.html
     

    Of course, this is for DB2 v9.7

    This prevents people trying to migrate Oracle software to run on DB2.  Any possibility that this is available on 10.5 or will be available in the near future?

    Thanks

    I think your understanding is not correct: http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v9r7/topic/com.ibm.db2.luw.sql.rtn.doc/doc/r0055155.html

    I would download it if it was working, access-denied errors for two days, now the package downloads and is the wrong version for Windows 64-bit. Get your act together IBM.

    We did get our act together now :-) Please download from the official page at http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/db2/express-c/download.html. Tried it yesterday, worked for me. Hopefully we have improved things - for example, you do not need an IBM ID any longer.

    HTH.
