Book Description

Jan. 1 1999 DB2 for the COBOL Programmer (Book 1)
This book makes it easy for you to master the essentials of DB2 programming. Written from the programmer's point of view, it focuses right from the start on what you need to know to access and process DB2 data in your application programs using embedded SQL

You'll learn: the basics of how DB2 works so you can program more easily and logically...how to design and code DB2 programs...how to use inner joins, outer joins, and unions to combine data from two or more tables...how to use column functions to extract summary data from a table...how to work with variable-length data and nulls...how to use error handling techniques and ROLLBACK to protect DB2 data...how to use locking and concurrency features so you don't tie up the who le system...how to develop DB2 programs interactively (using DB2I, a TSO facility) or in batch...how to create test data using SPUFI and QMF...and more!

Review

"Cram-packed with useful information and explained in such a way that the information fairly leaps off the page, Garvin, Eckols and Murach have done it again - 'DB2, Part 1' is another grand-slam winner." -- COBOL World Online, Feb. 1999

5.0 out of 5 stars All You Need To Learn DB2 May 31 2000
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent resource for all those baffled programmers who need to learn DB2 fast. Thos book provides clear-cut examples, syntax, and the results of the various SQL commands that are most likely to be needed by any programmer. All the basics from simple SELECT statements are covered all the way up to ORDER BY clauses, joins and so on. A special chapter on using SPUFI was also a big help. The emphasis here is on the COBOL language and mainframe computers, but it is an excellent learning tool for anyone. The book teaches by example and can be finished easily within a week (The example programs are what make it look so big). A must-read for anyone interested in relationall databases.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to learn DB2/SQL this is a MUST HAVE March 12 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Buy this book!!! ... I wanted
to refresh my basic DB2/COBOL skills, so I ordered a copy of this book.
"DB2 for the COBOL Programmer" is written in a clear and concise fashion
which even a novice programmer can start using immediately. SQL theory and
application are presented in a way that can only be described as inspired.
Curtis Garvin and Steve Eckols have done an outstanding job taking the
reader from zero to competent professional in this book. I only wish that
more 'techie' books were written like this one (and it's companion, Part 2).

4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful reference guide. Jan. 9 2007
By J. Corban - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I use this book at work all the time for projects where we are adding DB2 to old COBOL programs. I have a little bit of SQL experience, so I generally use this book as a reference. It also helps me use a variety of DB2 features to make the queries simpler and do what I really want.
4.0 out of 5 stars Book almost new but it took long time to arrive. Nov. 28 2010
By renatobdo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book that I bought is used but it looks like new. The only negative thing that I want to say is that I bought in October 4th and the book arrived in November 24th, I know that I live far away here in Brazil but that is the negative thing about the purchase. However, I recommend the bookstore because the price is very good.

regards,
Renato Bueno
