    Materialized Query Tables will be available in DB2 for z/OS version 8, which
    is not yet available. But you read about What's new at:
    http://www-3.ibm.com/software/data/db2/os390/v8/dsnwnj0.pdf

    It appears that DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS may be going in separate directions
    for the first time, but I am not exactly sure. In the past versions, they
    shared the same set of manuals.

    I was confused about your statement on z/OS versus OS/390, so I elicited
    the following comment from one of the DB2 z/OS architects:

    'Responding to your comment, "It appears that DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS
    may be going in separate directions for the first time, but I am not
    exactly sure. In the past versions, they
    shared the same set of manuals."

    Just as OS/390 continued the operating system from MVS, the new
    operating system is called z/OS, which is now in its fourth release, and
    getting out the fifth one soon. The final support date for OS/390 is
    September 2004, and the new DB2 UDB for z/OS Version 8 requires new
    hardware in the zSeries machines and new operating system with at least
    z/OS V1R3. If you need to stay on older releases of hardware or
    operating system, then you'll need to stay on an older release of DB2 as
    well.

    Here is the DB2 UDB for z/OS web page:
    http://www.ibm.com/software/data/db2/os390/index.html

    Here is the z/OS web page:
    http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/zos/

    Click on Support on either of those pages to check on more information.
    There is a lot more information available on the DB2 UDB for z/OS page
    as well.

    Here are the z/OS and OS/390 end of service dates:
    http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/zos/support/zos_eos_dates.html

    We share a lot across the DB2 UDB family. For SQL the key book is IBM®
    DB2 Universal Database™ SQL Reference
    for Cross-Platform Development Version 1.1
