IBM releases hybrid DB2

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From TechWorld]

IBM has launched the latest version of its DB2 database, codenamed Viper.

Unlike earlier versions, DB2 9.1 retains XML documents in their native format rather than breaking them up and storing them in relational tables, reducing storage costs. Any data stored in the server - whether relational or XML - can be retrieved using either SQL or XQuery.
