Upgrade for DB2 7.2 Workgroup edition?

sea
I have DB2 7.2 Workgroup edition -- I do not see a Workgroup edition
in version 8.1 -- what edition of 8.1 should I use to have a smooth
upgrade without having to unistall 7.2 and then reinstall?

Thank you very much!

-- what edition of 8.1 should I use to have a smooth
upgrade without having to unistall 7.2 and then reinstall?

Thank you very much!

Workgroup and DB2 Express are both available in v8.1. The 8.1
announcement letter is here:

Express is described in a May/2003 announcement.

V8 comes in two and a half flavors.
1) DB2 V8 Workgroup Server Edition, known as WSE
2) DB2 V8 Entreprise Server Edition, known as ESE
That edition has a feature known Partition Database Facility (the ˝),
which allows you to partition the db and its tablespaces on
logical/physiucal nodes in one or more boxes.

You might also read the following article from DB2 Developer Domain,
it explains the differences between the various licensing options:
