Format: Hardcover
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!

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.

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.

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!
