I am new to this forum and aspire to be a DB2 DBA. I have Mainframes background. I need some guidance on the following points
1. Before going for a certification in DB2, I want to start learning on my own. Please send me the Links/Documents for the same to start as a beginner.
2. Whats the latest version of DB2 Certification?
3. How is the market and job opportunities for a DB2 DBA these days?
4. What exactly is DB2 UDB? Will it be a better option for me(Since I come from Mainframes background)?
5. What all Certificate Exams I will have to take inorder to be a DB2 DBA and how much they cost?

Thanks & Rgds
