The only DB2 book written from the COBOL programmerís point of view.the critical DB2 concepts that let you understand how DB2 works so you can program more easily and logically
the basic DB2 coding features youíll use in every program you write
how to use features like outer joins and the explicit syntax for inner joins that simplify your coding
how to work with column functions, scalar functions, and subqueries to manipulate DB2 data
how to handle the complications caused by variable-length data and null values in DB2 tables
how to use error handling techniques and ROLLBACK to protect DB2 data
why program efficiency is vital under DB2Öand how to use the locking features right so you donít tie up the whole system
how to use SPUFI and QMF to create the test tables you need to debug your programs
how to develop DB2 programs interactively (using DB2I, a TSO facility) or in batch
Thatís right. Unlike other DB2 books, this book focuses right from the start on what you need to know to access and process DB2 data in your application programs using embedded SQL. Youíll learn:
12 sample programs guide you each step of the way. And once youíre on the job, they serve as time-saving models for your own programs.
