The book is written to help programmers write applications that are portable (that is, use only SQAL that is common among the DB2 platforms). It will not list out all of the differences between the platforms but it is a helpful manual.

to mainframe DB2 DBAs. You can check out Parlez-Vous DB2 for LUW? (Part 1) and Parlez-Vous DB2 for LUW? (Part 2).
