DB2mag: Winter 2006 issue

Hi DB2 user,

Winter 2006 issue of DB2mag is available online: http://www.db2mag.com/db_area/archives/2006/q4

- DB2 9 for z/OS Roars to Life by Craig Mullins :
The mainframe DB2 data server revs up its new hybrid XML/relational engine. Security enhancements, SQL upgrades, and performance improvements complete the package.

- REBIND Magic with V8 by Bonnie Baker :
It takes some time and some nerve, but it’s worth it.

- Understanding XML by Robert Catterall :
Your company is probably already using it. It’s time to figure out how to manage it.

- Asked & Answered by Uri Lifshitz :
In a DB2 for z/OS system that comprises tens of thousands of tables (and even more indexes), how can I find out which database tables require maintenance without running a lot of reports?
