DB2 Developer's Guide
by Craig S. Mullins

As a professional DB2 developer your days are extremely busy. Not only do you need to understand DB2, but you also need to understand programming and design issues, SQL, data modeling, operating system internals, on-line transaction processing systems, performance monitors, third-party tools, distributed data, and office politics. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a place to turn for advice? Well, now there is!
DB2 Developer's Guide, (originally published by SAMS Publishing, Inc.) by Craig S. Mullins and published on IBM Press, is the leading DB2 text in the industry. Containing more than 1,600 pages of in-depth technical information, DB2 Developer's Guide provides a comprehensive DB2 text that is not simply another book on SQL syntax and DB2 basics. It draws upon the author's day-to-day experiences as a DB2 system administrator, database administrator, and database analyst. The book is designed for ease of use both as a learning tool and a reference.
