I am looking for a database comparison tool for IBM DB2. I was wondering if there is a utility for IBM DB2 similar to OPatch in Oracle's db 11g?

This question came from our site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development.

can you tell me what you want to accomplish with such a tool? as far as I know OPatch does not compare databases. Toad for Oracle i a tool to compare databases. As far as I know there is also a Toad version for db2 but I do not know if it can compare databases. –  miracle173 Sep 6 '12 at 6:23

1 Answer 1

Toad for DB2 is able to compare schemas between two databases.

There is another product called dbsolo that will do this.

Toad is the one I would recommend.

You may want to explain why you would recommend one product over the other - this helps the original poster leverage your experience. –  Max Vernon Sep 25 '12 at 1:44
