Can you tell me a little about UDB?

I'm working with V5R1. My knowledge on UDB is very limited. I create my files with DDS or SQL Create Table, but

what is the difference with UDB? Is there a good book out there I can read?

IBM introduced a relational database on system/38 a long time ago. They developed the database improving its functionalities and introducing SQL. They then decided to take all their databases under a common umbrella called UDB. It enables a large number of features to be implemented on their popular machines without a need to depart from whatever is already installed.
