This book should be on your desk!

I would recommend this book for any DBA or DBM who needs an in-depth understanding of developing and monitoring DB2 V9.

The information in Chapters 8 & 9, Bufferpool Tuning and Monitoring was very beneficial.

This is a great book for developers because covers pureXML and other features and great to for DBAs the chapter on monitoring is a must have when you are in trouble with your database

Just keep in mind that this book is focues on the LUW(Linux, Unix and Windows) version of DB2, I say this because a friend of mine bought for using with z/OS by mistake.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must have for anyone who develops application code or administers DB2 databases on the windows/unix/linux platform.

The chapter on understand the DB2 optimizer is required reading because it provides deep insight into how DB2 will go about getting the data out of your relational database. Understanding this is fundamental for performance in your application.

The chapters on monitoring and peformance tuning are also very insightful and relay the authors years of experience in a very straight forward manner. Using the methods described in this book makes it easy to put procedures in place to track the performance of your database over time, and to spot problems before they start.

This book is a "must have".

This book only provides very high level information about DB2 features and doesn't have the level of detail that I wished for. I purchased this book based on other's review; however, I think that it is not useful for most people who is going to do developement on DB2.

Mr. Gunning's expertise provided the information I needed about the newest version of DB2. Service Oriented Architecture, in Chapter 6, and XML, in Chapter 9, were clearly written and understandable.

Format: Paperback
Phil's book focuses on development for performance - whether you decide to use pureXML or not, this is a must-read before you commence writing code! It contains excellent insight & tips for performance monitoring and tuning. Primarily written for DB2 on the distributed platforms, it serves as a good supplemental reference for SQL used with DB2 on the mainframe as well.

This reference book covers the XML capabilities added to DB2 in Version 9. Other updates are identified with minimal explanation or examples.
