where to find all db2 editions?

OK,

Where can I find an explanation about all db2 (from 9.1, 9.5 and 0.7) editions?
Are all editions universal database type?
What is Universal database?
We have bought this product: IBM DB2 Workgroup Server Edition PVU Option. Is this Universal Database?

Thanks.

yes
you have the universal database
all of them are called universal
it's just  a part of the name
most of the differences between the different versions comes down to the hardware resources that can be used, and specific features that are enabled only on some editions

Hi again,

Frankly spoken, I'm really and by no means a DB2 expert,
but I'd like to point you to this nice article from developerWorks
(maybe you know in already):

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/data/library/techarticle/dm-0611zikopoulos/

and here is a "Features and Functions" comparison from the Infocenter:

Hope this helps a bit.

ok, but what is the meaning of 'universal database'? The fact some software is asking for any version of DB2 but it MUST BE 'UDB', that's what confuse me...:-)

As far as I know all DB2 editions carry the denomination "UDB", which thus seems to be just kind of a marketing label.

Even DB2 for z/OS was called "DB2 UDB for z/OS" in former days.
