DB2 Version 9.7 Documentation

23 February,2011 by Tom Collins

I work with SQL Server and DB2 , both have their advantages and disadvantages. But one thing that IBM does more effectively is documentation. SQL Server Books Online is thorough documentation , but the documentation for IBM DB2 is execllent in the way it covers all the details ,in an expansive manner. To give you and idea I've included the list of downloadable PDFs , which can be downloaded from DB2 9.7 documentation
