I have an scnairo where we need to develop an application on some freeware database like,MYSQL or Postgres and then migrate it to DB2. Now I need help in knowing which database will be more compatible with DB2,I mean to ask with respect to functions supported. also I have heard abt some limitations in sub queries by MSQL.
And lastly dose DB2 have any kind of tool which helps in migration for both database?

Praful, The goal should be to use standard SQL. Then you can use any database without changing/converting the queries. MySql and Postgres support standard SQL. Just try to avoid using any of their proprietary functions.
