DB2 9 introduces pureXML support, which means that XML data is stored and queried in its inherent hierarchical format. To query XML data, DB2 offers two languages, SQL/XML and XQuery. Additionally, DB2 9 has sophisticated XML indexing capabilities and support for XML Schema validation. While many existing performance guidelines for DB2 also apply to XML data, additional performance considerations apply to XML. This sessions presents 15 XML-specific performance tips for DB2, illustrated with examples. This includes a discussion of common mistakes and how to avoid them. 10 of the 15 tips also apply to pureXML in DB2 for zOS.
