    Unanswered: DB2 Express-C

    Hi,
    I am looking for a DB2 version for our Development team.
    I know, this is the free version. my question is -

    Is this version is enough for just SQL development (like Store proc, function...etc).

    Thanks,

    Should work fine for development, or even most production environments if you only need 4 GB total instance memory, and max 2 CPU cores (V10.1). Your server can over these amounts, but DB2 will limit the amount of resources used to the above limits.

    The main functional limitations of DB2 Express-C are:
    • No MQT's
    • No SQL or Q Replication
    • No Table Partitioning


    Compare the distributed DB2 10.1 database servers

    If you want 9.7, you may have a hard time finding it since they typically remove downloads to previous versions of DB2 Express-C once a new version is available.

    Thanks

    Great news. Thanks Markus. Unfortunately I need v9.7 as our Live system is v9.7

    I will keep searching, otherwise we have to use v10.1.

    Thanks,

    I wouldn't look on the IBM site. See if you know someone who has a copy.
