Creating applications that use a hybrid of relational data and XML data is easy thanks to the pureXML® feature of IBM® DB2® database servers. In this tutorial, you use PHP to create a Web application that connects to an IBM DB2 Express-C database and stores some of its data in traditional relational database columns, and some of it in native XML columns. You also learn how to use SQL/XML queries to retrieve, insert, update, and delete data from this database. Beyond the hands-on, project-based training, the tutorial equips you with the skills and conceptual knowledge you need to develop your own hybrid applications.
