Native XML Storage for the Mac
December 26, 2008
IBM recently released the Beta of DB2 Express-C for the Mac. This means that IBM’s native XML storage capability—DB2 pureXML—is now available on the Mac.
This release of DB2 on the Mac is a direct response to the growing community of developers who are choosing Mac OS X as their operating system of choice. These developers are using languages like Ruby, Python, and PHP and want to be able to use DB2 pureXML in their native Mac environment.
There is no charge for DB2 Express-C, and there are no limits to the amount of data you have. So DB2 Express-C is ideal for many development projects. You can download the Beta release of DB2 for the Mac from the DB2 Express-C download page.
Antonio Cangiano has a nice blog post that helps you get started with DB2 on the Mac.
