With the second release of pureXML in DB2 10 for z/OS come many exciting new features and improvements, such as sub-document update, XQuery, XML support in SQL PL, and binary XML format. Using concrete examples, this presentation will demonstrate scenarios and solutions of using pureXML unique features to achieve flexibility above and beyond the relational model, improve productivity and performance, and alleviate the pains for application developers as well as DBAs.
