Re: [z/OS] GA dates of old(er) versions of DB2

Hi Troy. I read your articles in the IBM Systems magazine last year in
preparation for an IDUG presentation I'm putting together. They're very
useful and I may cite them during my presentation if that's ok with you.


Do you happen to remember when Partitioned and Segmented tablespaces
showed up? I've got a couple of moldy textbooks from the late '80s that
lead me to believe that Segmented showed up in 1989, and partitioned
were already in place in 1988. By your table below, that leads me to
believe that partitioned came about maybe with V1.2 or V1.3, and
Segmented with V2.2 or V2.3. Any ideas? It's not important but some DB2
geeks just love their trivia.

Hi Rick,
Thank you for the kind words. You can site my articles anytime you
want. Just put a plug in for IBM Systems Magazine :-)
As for the dates on segmented and partitioning. Maybe Willie or Roger
have it.
I was thinking segmented was available in 1.3 but maybe it was in 2.x
series.

Good Luck!

Re: [z/OS] GA dates of old(er) versions of DB2
(in response to William Favero)
Hi Rick,
Segmented came out in V2R1. Partitioned came out in V1R2 I think, but no later than V1R3.
I have the IDUG proceedings back to 1989. I didn't keep Guide Proceedings, because they never contained much DB2 stuff. One of the things IDUG fixed was the quality of the proceedings.

Willie is correct - I just checked my V1R1M0 DB2 reference summary guide
from 1984 and the CREATE TABLESPACE allows 16 partitions (isn't that
kind of funny).

Thema: Re: [DB2-L] [z/OS] GA dates of old(er) versions of DB2


Willie is correct - I just checked my V1R1M0 DB2 reference summary guide
from 1984 and the CREATE TABLESPACE allows 16 partitions (isn't that
kind of funny).

Segmented table spaces arrive in DB2 V2.1 and partitioning has been
there since the beginning.

DB2 V1.1 was announced June 7, 1983 but it didn't go GA until April 2, 1985.

DB2 V1.2 went GA Feb 4, 1986

Re: [z/OS] GA dates of old(er) versions of DB2
(in response to William Favero)
OK, follow-on question

Does anyone have softcopies of any of the Version 2 SQL Reference manuals (bookmanager format probably)??

I'm trying to remember "all" of the new stuff that came in V2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 and my long-term memory is failing me badly (with all the stuff IBM deliver these days, I have Gary Larssons "my brains full" moments now)

Thanks to everyone for their help

Phil,
I don't believe bookmanager actually existed until about 1994 or so, possibly later. I think the earliest softcopy books I had were around DB2 V4 or 5. Good luck getting them, and no, I don't want a copy. :)
Best regards,
Martin
