Marketshare for DB2 has been growing steadily over the past 5 years and with the announcement of DB2 Universal Database V8 (T-Rex), the product has never had more momentum. DB2 owns about 30 percent of the database market--the same as Oracle. Not only is the product used in many Fortune 500 companies, but it is becoming very popular in small to medium sized businesses as well. This book provides the reader with a comprehensive reference and research tool for DB2 for the mainframe. Official material is awkwardly written, spans over a dozen manuals in PDF format, and lacks real-world guidance. Author, Craig Mullins, consistently hears from readers of past editions that they rely on this book as their primary reference for DB2. Craig Mullins is constantly being asked when it will support a new release. "This is an excellent book . . . It is chock full of DB2 technical information, design and tuning approaches and database administration guidelines . . .Mullins seems to have dumped his entire DB2 life experience into DB2 Developer's Guide."- Jonathon Sayles in Relational Database Journal.
