Managing XML Data with DB2 and COBOL, PL/I, C, Java, and .NET (F03)

Topic: 2009 EU

Subtopic: Cross Platform DB2 for z/OS & LUW

SPEAKERS: Matthias Nicola (IBM Silicon Valley Lab)

DB2 9 for z/OS and DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows have introduced pureXML - a collection of features to store, index, query, update, and maintain XML data alongside your relational data. XML has emerged as a new data type in DB2. In addition to the server side features, all of the major database APIs have been extended with XML capabilities. You can now define XML type variables for embedded SQL, CLI, Java, and .NET applications. These APIs also offer XML-specific functions that simplify application development and help you avoid common encoding problems. This session walks you through "the other side" of pureXML, focusing on application development, APIs, coding guidelines, and performance tips for the XML application developer.
