Get ready to become a power user of XQuery and XPath expressions in the processing of XML documents. Get ready to understand some of the efficiencies and inefficiencies of XML processing. Db2’s PureXML feature allows you to store well-formed XML documents as a column that has the XML data type. This allows for efficient search, retrieval, and updates within an XML document. This class spends time showing how to query these documents using the XQuery language (with XQuery expressions). Students will have many hands-on workshops to reinforce the topics and learn the most efficient ways to code and process.
Some experience in SQL programming is recommended. Some previous experience in XML documents would be nice, but not required. The features in this course are noted below are for Db2 for z/OS.
