Now in its 6th edition, the exam-preparation format of this text has been perfected, leading the reader in a clear, systematic way through the material, from installing and configuring DB2 servers, using SQL, creating a DB2 database, and developing applications. The expanded treatment of applications in the final chapters exceed what's necessary for certification and are intended to be used as a reference to using DB2 on Linux, UNIX, and Windows platforms. Two appendices contain DB2 9 certification test objectives and a DB2DEMO installation. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
