Withdrawn programs
Bottom rule

To more strongly encourage the adoption of the technology of Rational® Open Access: RPG Edition and, thereby, enhance the value of the IBM® i platform and the RPG language, IBM is removing the additional license entitlement requirement for Rational Open Access: RPG Edition for customers of IBM i and IBM Rational Development Studio for i. IBM i 6.1 and 7.1 Program Temporary Fixes (PTFs) will be available within two weeks after January 31, 2012, to enable Open Access: RPG Edition applications to run in the absence of a Rational Open Access runtime license, and to move the technology of Open Access: RPG Edition into Rational Development Studio for i.

The removal of the license requirement does not affect the supported lifetime of the technology of Open Access: RPG Edition. This technology will continue to be supported as part of the IBM i operating system (RPG runtime) and the ILE RPG compiler, currently 6.1 and 7.1. Rational Open Access: RPG Edition customers will renew their Software Maintenance agreement under the IBM i Software Maintenance agreement.

Effective May 8, 2012, IBM will withdraw from marketing programs and features licensed under the IBM International Program License Agreement.

However, as of February 1, 2012, running an ILE RPG program using an Open Access file will be available, at no additional charge, to everyone who is licensed to use the IBM i 6.1 and 7.1. Also, compiling an ILE RPG program using an Open Access file will be available, at no additional charge, to everyone who is licensed to use the ILE compilers feature of either IBM Rational Development Studio for i 7.1 or IBM WebSphere® Development Studio for i 6.1.
