From the Back Cover

The Definitive Solutions-Oriented Guide to DB2 for z/OS: Now Fully Updated for Both v9 and v10!

DB2 Developer’s Guide is the world’s #1 go-to source for on-the-job information on programming and administering DB2. Now, three-time IBM Information Champion Craig S. Mullins has thoroughly updated this classic for the newest versions of DB2 for z/OS: DB2 V9 andV10.

This Sixth Edition builds on the unique approach that has made previous editions so valuable. It brings together condensed, easy-to-read coverage of all essential topics: information otherwise scattered through dozens of IBM and third-party documents.

Whether you’re a professional DB2 developer, DBA, sysadmin, or advanced user, this book will make you more productive, effective, and successful.

Coverage includes
• Modern DB2 SQL tools, tips, and tricks
• Best practices for data definition, indexing, and change management
• Large objects and object/relational databases
• Temporal data support
• DB2 security, authorization, and auditing
• Dynamic SQL programming and DB2 stored procedures
• “Under the hood” with the DB2 Optimizer and Catalog
• Performance monitoring in-depth: EXPLAIN, object monitoring, and RTS
• REORG, RUNSTATS, REBIND: superior approaches to managing DB2 access path changes
• DB2 tuning: environment, components, and resource governing
• Optimizing DB2 utilities and commands
