DB2 pureXML Cookbook

Master the Power of the IBM Hybrid Data Server

 

Hands-On Solutions and Best Practices for Developing and Managing XML Database Applications with DB2

 

More and more database developers and DBAs are being asked to develop applications and manage databases that involve XML data. Many are utilizing the highly praised DB2 pureXML technology from IBM. In the DB2 pureXML Cookbook, two leading experts from IBM offer the practical solutions and proven code samples that database professionals need to build better XML solutions faster. Organized by task, this book is packed with more than 700 easy-to-adapt “recipe-style” examples covering the entire application lifecycle-from planning and design through coding, optimization, and troubleshooting. This extraordinary library of recipes includes more than 250 XQuery and SQL/XML queries. With the authors' hands-on guidance, you'll learn how to combine pureXML “ingredients” to efficiently perform virtually any XML data management task, from the simplest to the most advanced.

 

Coverage includes

 

  • pureXML in DB2 9 for z/OS and DB2 9.1, 9.5, and 9.7 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
  • Best practices for designing XML data, applications, and storage objects Importing, exporting, loading, replicating, and federating XML data
  • Querying XML data, from start to finish: XPath and XQuery data model and languages, SQL/XML, stored procedures, UDFs, and much more
  • Avoiding common errors and inefficient XML queries
  • Converting relational data to XML and vice versa
  • Updating and transforming XML documents
  • Defining and working with XML indexes
  • Monitoring and optimizing the performance of XML queries and other operations
  • Using XML Schemas to constrain and validate XML documents
  • XML application development-including code samples for Java, .NET, C, COBOL,PL/1, PHP, and Perl

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By P. Nelson on December 31, 2009
Format: Hardcover
The DB2 pureXML Cookbook is one of the most comprehensive technical books I've ever read on any topic.

It not only covers DB2's pureXML implementation of the SQL/XML, XPath and XQuery in great depth but it also provides a wealth of detail on the underlying standards as well. Therefore I would recommend this not only to DB2 people using XML, but to anyone using XML in a database environment.

The examples, of which there are hundreds, are probably the best feature of this book. I find myself dipping into it for help over and over again and finding something that I can easily modify for my own particular use case. It is obvious that the authors have extensive experience not only of XML and DB2 pureXML but of how these technologies are used in the "real world".

My advice to you ... buy it and save yourselves hours of effort in your XML development effort.

DB2 PureXML Cookbook is a 'must' for any advanced-level library strong in database surveys in general and DB2 in particular. It focuses on using XML data in the process of implementing DB2, and provides fine technical coverage on a range of issues, from identifying inefficient XML queries and updating XML documents to importing and replicating XML data and optimizing its performance. Very highly recommended!

I'v had the opportunity to hear Dr. Matthias Nicola speak about DB2 PureXML on several occasions and there's no doubt that he is an expert on the subject. This book confirms that.

The DB2 pureXML Cookbook is the most comprehensive and authorative technical book that I have found on the subject. It is a "must have" for anyone wishing to take advantage of all that pureXML has to offer in a DB2 environment. In addition to describing the benefits of using pureXML, it covers everything from designing and managing XML storage objects to querying XML data with SQL and XQuery. I highly recommend it!

This is one of the best technical books I've read. All the examples are fantastic. Too often a detailed technical manual will not provide adequate examples or will assume prior information. This book will take you from novice to expert.
