The DB2 database is an important part of IBM's e-business software portfolio. The e-business Application Framework provides an open blueprint on how to build e-business applications. Popular IBM e-business tools include Visual Age for Java for developing Java programs or components and Tivioli software for distributed systems management. As for application server software, IBM offers several types of servers depending on the business requirement, from Message Queuing (MQ) software to Java-based transaction processing with Websphere Application Server.
The DB2 Family executes on pervasive devices, Intel, UNIX, AS/400, and main-frame platforms. Supported operating environments include: OS/2, Windows 95/ 98/2000/NT, Linux, AIX, HP-UX, Sun Solaris, NUMA-Q, OS/400, VSE/VM, and OS/390. The DB2 code base is optimized for each platform to ensure maximum performance. The SQL API is common to all platforms, which allows applications written on one platform to access data on any platform. Internally, the OS/400, VM/VSE, and OS/390 differ from DB2 on the UNIX and Intel platforms, but it is the common SQL API that enables applications to work together. The DB2 code base on Intel and UNIX platforms are identical.
DB2 V7.1 for UNIX, Linux, Windows, and OS/2, provides seamless database con-nectivity using the most popular network communications protocols, including NetBIOS, TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, Named Pipes, and APPC.
In leveraging information in an e-business environment, IBM's Enterprise Information Portal (EIP) provides a secure foundation for a single pont of access to diverse information, business processes, and expertise. Today's high demand for complete and correlated information requires portal access not only to structured transactional and warehouse data, but also to a broader range of content, including XML, HTML, host computer-generated output, images, and audio/video. The IBM Enterprise Information Portal offers access to business data from sources such as spreadsheets, document libraries, company literature, databases, data warehouses, and unstructured information fromWeb pages. The information can also be searched using parametric or contextual search technologies, with results aggregated across multiple sources and relevant information presented in a context tailored to the user's needs.
The new DB2 Everyplace executes on a number of pervasive operating environments, including: Palm OS, Windows CE, and EPOC.
Applications for DB2 Enterprise Edition can scale upward and execute on massively parallel clusters or can scale downward with applications executing on single-user database systems.
DB2 Enterprise Edition is available on the Windows, OS/2, Linux, and UNIX platforms....
