In the sense that both are the latest release, I suppose so.
In the sense that they have equivalent functionality: no.
Different code base, different set of customers.

What is your _real_ question? :-)

:) indeed: I was wondering if I could use 'a' db2 udb v9 handbook as
a handbook to learn more about DB2 SQL

i.e. I found an example like this in a book:
SELECT *
FROM sysibm/tables
WHERE table_name = TABLE_NAME('logs','mes32f52')

(I already edited it from this statement:
SELECT tabschema
,tabname
,card
FROM syscat.tables
WHERE tabname = TABLE_NAME('atable','aschema');
)

and this made me thinking if I was at the right version, since this
does not work..

See SQL Reference Appendix F for catalog descriptions:
