IBM Db2 Tutorial: Getting Started with IBM Db2
In this tutorial, we will cover the basics of IBM Db2 and how to get started with the DBMS. To complete this tutorial, you will need access to an IBM Db2 database. If you do not have access to an IBM Db2 database, you can sign up for a free trial on the IBM website.
Step 1: Connect to IBM Db2 To connect to an IBM Db2 database, you will need to use a client program, such as the IBM Data Server Manager. To connect to the database, follow these steps:
- Open the IBM Data Server Manager.
- Click on the “Connect” button.
- Enter the host name or IP address of the IBM Db2 database.
- Enter the port number for the IBM Db2 database (the default port is 50000).
- Enter your IBM Db2 username and password.
Step 2: Create a Table Once you are connected to the IBM Db2 database, you can create a table. To create a table, you can use the following SQL statement:
CREATE TABLE mytable ( id INT PRIMARY KEY, name VARCHAR(255), age INT );
Step 3: Insert Data into the Table Now that you have created a table, you can insert data into the table. To insert data into the table, you can use the following SQL statement:
INSERT INTO mytable (id, name, age) VALUES (1, 'John Doe', 30), (2, 'Jane Doe', 35), (3, 'Jim Smith', 40);
Step 4: Query Data from the Table Finally, you can query data from the table. To query data from the table, you can use the following SQL statement:
SELECT * FROM mytable;
This will return all the rows from the
mytable table. You should see the three rows of data you inserted earlier.
Conclusion In this tutorial, we covered the basics of IBM Db2 and how to get started with the DBMS. We created a table, inserted data into the table, and queried data from the table. This tutorial should provide a good foundation for further exploration and experimentation with IBM Db2.
