Product Description

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

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.

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).

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.
Book almost new but it took long time to arrive. Nov. 28 2010

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

I reference this book often to help me in my work. I've had this book for about a year and it has been extremely helpful.
It's been great at expaining concept and showing examples.
I reccomend it for for beginning and intermidiate users of DB2.
