Overview
Bottom rule

WebSphere MQ V7.5 delivers a single Universal Messaging solution. It enables the simple, rapid, reliable, and secure transport of data and messages between applications, systems, and services.

WebSphere MQ is the market-leading, message-oriented middleware product that delivers a reliable, proven universal messaging backbone for almost 10,000 organizations of different sizes, spanning many industries around the world.

This new release builds on the added capabilities and new functions that were delivered in WebSphere MQ V7.1, which was announced in October, 2011. It also builds on the previous announcements for WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition V7.0.4, in April, 2011, and WebSphere MQ Advanced Message Security V7.0.1, in October, 2011.

Note: WebSphere MQ for z/OS®, V7.1 is not updated in this release of WebSphere MQ V7.5 for Multiplatforms.

You can obtain the new enhanced functions offered in WebSphere MQ V7.5 by migrating directly to V7.5 from WebSphere MQ V6.0, V7.0.1, or V.7.1 -- without migrating to an interim version or release.

A key new feature of WebSphere MQ V7.5 is the consolidation of multiple previously separate product capabilities into a single integrated offering. WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition and WebSphere MQ Advanced Message Security, both previously announced separate products, are now available as integrated capabilities for optional installation as Managed File Transfer and Advanced Message Security components within the WebSphere MQ product. They are subject to appropriate licensing entitlement.

WebSphere MQ V7.1 introduced a capability to support install of different versions of WebSphere MQ in different locations on your system. WebSphere MQ V7.5 extends this to enable additional capabilities for Advanced Message Security and Managed File Transfer to be optionally installed as part of the WebSphere MQ server install.

WebSphere MQ V7.5 queue managers gain access to these additional capabilities without requiring additional access to code, or separate product installs. All tooling necessary to use these functions is included in the MQ Explorer tooling or command line tools for scripted configuration as standard for all customers, including those on z/OS.

Changes made to the licensing of the Extended Transactional Client and the WebSphere MQ Telemetry Client benefit all customers in providing increased entitlement. This applies to customers of WebSphere MQ V7.5 as well as WebSphere MQ V7.0.1 and WebSphere MQ V7.1.

For ordering, contact Your IBM representative or an IBM Business Partner. For more information contact the Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (426-2255). Reference: YE001

Description
Bottom rule

WebSphere MQ delivers a single integrated Universal Messaging solution. This V7.5 release delivers new features and also enhances the total capabilities available through integrating managed file transfer functions and advanced message security capabilities that were previously available and installable as separate offerings.

Integrated managed file transfer

WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition has been available as a separate product offering for a number of years, providing the ability for customers to move their business data stored in files over the WebSphere MQ infrastructure, improving the reliability, security, and management of their file transfers. WebSphere MQ V7.5 extends this capability from being a separate offering, to being an integrated optional feature of the WebSphere MQ server component as the WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer Service. Now all WebSphere MQ servers can install, subject to entitlement, this server-based capability. Additional separately installable endpoints, WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer Agents, are included in the package. These are entitled separately to allow customers to extend the managed file transfer infrastructure to any point in their enterprise connection to the WebSphere MQ server deployments.

Integrated advanced message security

WebSphere MQ Advanced Message Security, also available for a number of years, allows customers to protect the security of their messages from application to application, without the need to change the application code itself. With WebSphere MQ V7.5, this capability is included as a part of the install, making it simpler for customers to see the function, and to have it installed should they wish to buy license entitlement to use it.

Improved application isolation

WebSphere MQ V7.5 includes improved ability to scale for differing workload environments by the ability to configure multiple transmission queues in a WebSphere MQ clustered environment. This enables applications with different workloads and performance requirements to operate at their own rate without impacting other applications.

Enhancements for the managed file transfer capabilities

In addition to the tight integration, as a part of WebSphere MQ V7.5, which enhances the runtime control, the managed file transfer capabilities are also enhanced. There are additional choices for storing file transfer audit information with the addition of the file system as an option. There is also greater customization for the content and format, as well as more options for logging.

Enhancements for WebSphere MQ Security

The addition of Managed File Transfer capabilities as well as WebSphere MQ Advanced Message Security into WebSphere MQ V7.5 enables some improvements to the security possible within WebSphere MQ.

With WebSphere MQ V7.5 the Advanced Message Security feature built into all MQ clients, end-to-end encryption is allowed by updates to WebSphere MQ objects for customers who are licensed to use that function. There is also further support for protecting sensitive data such as passwords used in configuring managed file transfers.

Wider access to the Extended Transactional Client for all customers

The Extended Transactional Client enables customers to configure their WebSphere MQ client to participate in a transactional unit of work when exchanging messages to an MQ server. Use of this client without charge was previously restricted to customers using WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, or WebSphere Process Server as the Transaction Manager. With the announcement of WebSphere MQ V7.5, the Extended Transactional Client is available for use in all client deployments without additional entitlement. This includes all supported versions of WebSphere MQ client connecting to any supported version of WebSphere MQ queue manager.

With the availability of WebSphere MQ V7.5 the capability previously delivered within the Extended Transactional Client is incorporated into the standard WebSphere MQ client. Customers using WebSphere MQ V7.0.1 and WebSphere MQ V7.1 gain the benefit of use of the Extended Transactional Client without charge from the date of this announcement. IBM is making available refreshed code including updated License Information. Customers can realize this benefit through the download and acceptance of this new License Information.

Using WebSphere MQ Telemetry Standard Client

WebSphere MQ Telemetry was included as part of the WebSphere MQ V7.1 offering, providing wider access to this capability for customers who wanted to deploy the WebSphere MQ Telemetry clients on suitable endpoints and connect them to their WebSphere MQ servers.

Connecting these clients to WebSphere MQ servers required purchasing entitlements based on the number of Telemetry clients connecting to a WebSphere MQ Queue Manager at any one time. With the announcement of WebSphere MQ V7.5, use of the WebSphere MQ Telemetry Client requires purchasing an entitlement for WebSphere MQ Telemetry Clients for each WebSphere MQ Server installed that will have WebSphere MQ Telemetry clients connected to it, with no limit to the number of clients connected. This change in the license entitlement for WebSphere MQ Telemetry Clients applies to not just WebSphere MQ V7.5. It also benefits customers using WebSphere MQ Telemetry Clients with WebSphere MQ V7.0.1 and WebSphere MQ V7.1 from the date of this announcement. IBM is making available refreshed code including updated License Information and customers can realize this benefit through the download and acceptance of this new License Information.

The WebSphere MQ Telemetry Advanced Client entitlements are still based on the number of clients connected at any one time.

Enhancements for the use of WebSphere MQ as a trial

Customers wanting to make a rapid start connecting applications with WebSphere MQ can take advantage of the availability of WebSphere MQ as a free download in a trial version. With WebSphere MQ V7.1 this feature was enhanced to enable trial versions of WebSphere MQ to be upgraded to a full production license. With the integration of additional entitled capabilities in WebSphere MQ V7.5, a trial download is still available. However, where entitlement was not purchased at the end of the trial for capabilities that were installed, then those capabilities without entitlement must be removed from the system.

Install

Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each install of the program.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the Program, except for those servers from which the program was permanently removed.

If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the Program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Top rule
Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
