Objectives

This course presents a detailed description of the DB2 system: what it is, what it is intended for, and how it can be used. Rather than just giving a description of the system, the course will also deal with deficiencies, its relation to other RDBMS, and topics like the DB2 catalog, performance, authorisations, and integrity.

In addition, the course teaches how the system is used in practice. At the end of the course the participants will not only have the necessary theoretical knowledge of DB2 as an RDBMS, they will also have had sufficient practical training to start working with DB2 in an independent way.

Together with the courses RDBMS concepts and SQL fundamentals, this course forms a well-balanced whole, in such a manner that the participants have an 'overview' of DB2 as RDBMS after they followed this course.

Main topics

  • Introduction: DB2 environment; client-server model
  • Relational system: position within the relational model
  • SQL data definition language (DDL): the DB2 objects (tables, tablespaces, indexes, views, ...): characteristics, creation, use, and parameters
  • SQL embedded in a program: development cycle, precompilation, compilation, BIND, plans and packages
  • The DB2 catalog
  • Security and authorization
  • Utilities: LOAD, UNLOAD, CHECK DATA, RUNSTATS, REORG
  • Integrity, locking
  • Performance: basic principles, the EXPLAIN function
