Hi DB2 user,
Here is a non-profit Blog about DB2 for z/OS (IBM mainframes):
Last update on Monday, January 3rd 2011
IBM just published a draft version of a new Redbook, "Extremely pureXML in DB2 10 for z/OS, SG24-7915-00":
The DB2 pureXML feature offers sophisticated capabilities to store, process and manage XML data in its native hierarchical format. By integrating XML data intact into a relational database structure, users can take full advantage of DB2’s relational data management features.
In this IBM Redbooks publication we document the steps for the implementation of a simple but meaningful XML application scenario. We have chosen to provide samples in COBOL and Java language. The purpose being to provide an easy path to follow to integrate the XML data type for the traditional DB2 user.
We have also added considerations for the data administrator and suggested best practices for ease of use and better performance.
