Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Mr. Gunning has done it again!
Having studied under Phil Gunning and knowing the dept of his expertise this book brought to life real world experiences in a classroom like setting. As a DBA I found the Chapter#8 on "Tuning Buffer Pools" and Chapter #9 "The Optimizer" to be of great help to me personally. This book is a great reference material for any DBA faced with the challenge of daily performance. I was excited to read Mr. Gunning's explanation of the `Utilities" incorporated in DB2 V9. I would recommend this book for any DBA or DBM who needs an in-depth understanding of developing and monitoring DB2 V9.

I was looking for a good book on DB2 9 based on practical experience and this book is just what I was looking for. The chapters on XML in general, and the Chapter on the new DB2 9 XML data type provided me with a good overview of DB2 9 Hybrid XML capabilities. And Chapter 5 helped me get started using the Developer Workbench. Lastly, Chapter 9 on optimization was a big help in helping me to analyze SQL using local, order by and join predicates. This book should be on your desk!
