You’re right, there were no DB2 for z/OS product publication updates in May; there can’t be stuff to update every month. However, there are a couple of DB2 10 and DB2 9 manuals that have been refreshed for June….. As you look over the couple of June updates, there are a couple of things I would like to point out. Each entry below includes the name of the file that is actually downloaded when you retrieve one of the DB2 publication PDF files. This is in addition to the real publication name and size. I am also including the publication release number; that’s the last two digits of the publication number following the hyphen that no one usually uses. All of this is in a effort to make sure you are downloading the correct (newest) copy of the DB2 manual.
You can head over to the IBM DB2 product library web site and download them or you can just click through the list of DB2 10 and DB2 9 manuals that have been updated listed in this post for your convenience.
My first list are the four (4) DB2 10 for z/OS publications updated for June 2012,
This next list is of the two (2) DB2 9 for z/OS product publications that are part of the June 2012 refresh. The DB2 9 manuals can be found at: DB2 9 for z/OS technical information and manuals
Finally, and maybe most importantly, the best place to get hold of the most up to date information about DB2 for z/OS, regardless of the release, will almost always be the Information Center on the web .
