DB2 book recommendations for a COBOL/VSAM programmer

My project at work is to move from a VSAM application to DB2 (mainframe). Can you suggest any good DB2/SQL books for an old COBOL/VSAM programmer to make the transition easier? I know this is not a difficult question, but no one I talk to knows the answer.

My project at work is to move from a VSAM application to DB2 (mainframe). Can you suggest any good DB2/SQL books for an old COBOL/VSAM programmer to make the transition easier? I know this is not a difficult question, but no one I talk to knows the answer.

I can recommend the following books as very useful for your situation:

DB2 Developer's Guide, 4th edition by Craig S. Mullins

DB2 for the COBOL Programmer, 2nd edition by Curtis Garvin and Steve Eckols
