Overview

DB2 Universal Database (UDB) supports many different types of applications, on many different kinds of data, in many different software and hardware environments.

This book provides a complete guide to DB2 UDB Version 5 in all its aspects, including the interfaces that support end users, application developers, and database administrators. It is complementary to the IBM product documentation, providing a clear and informal explanation of how the features of DB2 were intended to be used. It is an extensive revision of the author's earlier book, Using the New DB2: IBM's Object-Relational Database System.

  • Offers complete and self-contained information, and does not assume prior knowledge of DB2, SQL, or relational database concepts
  • Covers elementary principles of database management as well as the advanced features of UDB, including recursive queries, constraints, triggers, user-defined datatypes, stored procedures, parallel databases, and graphical tools for database administration
  • Includes dozens of practical tips that will save readers many hours of work in developing database applications

This is by far the best DB2 book I've ever read and one of the best technical books also. When it covers a topic it explains why things are done and items related to the topic.

This book is an absolute 'must-read'. Of course, everyone already knows that.
