The new The SQL Reference for Cross-Platform Development has arrived
In May of this year, IBM published the newest version of The SQL Reference for Cross-Platform Development. It is intended for developers who build applications that need to be portable across the DB2 family.

This blog does not have the intention to go in to full detail on the differences but to show at a high level the similarities and differences between DB2 for LUW and DB2 for z/OS.
In previous articles we have dealt with the basics of temporal storage and some performance considerations. Now we will move on to look at some additional topics, some of them of an advanced nature.
