Review IBM DB2 7.1 features and strategies for maximizing application performance and scalability, and master advanced techniques such as triggers and stored procedures.

Master embedded SQL programming within DB2; development with CLI/ODBC, and OLE DB development — including Microsoft's ActiveX Data Objects (ADO). Next, take advantage of the powerful DB2 Administration and Context Management API, which allows you to handle a wide variety of database administration tasks from within your application code. Coverage also includes:

  • JDBC and SQLj: how and when to use each
  • Using IBM's Net.Data scripting language to build powerful Web applications that access data from DB2 and other sources

Whatever your DB2 application, whatever your environment — UNIX, Windows, or OS/2 — this is the most thorough, authoritative development guide you can find.
