Description

IBM WebSphere Transformation Extender with Launcher Hypervisor Edition for AIX V8.4.1 ( WebSphere TX) delivers the data transformation and validation required in your IT infrastructure.

Base editions of Websphere TX provide the core engine, associated infrastructure, and components necessary for production data transformation environments. All implementations require one or more base editions, depending on the enterprise architecture and location where WebSphere TX is implemented. Technology adapters for integrating with other technologies in the enterprise, such as IBM WebSphere MQ, are included in the base products.

Note: Not all adapters are supported on all platforms. For example, a subset of adapters is supported on IBM System z® and includes WebSphere MQ, file, and FTP. The adapters not included are those with royalty bearing encryption and security protocols, and those delivered in optional packs.

The following editions are available:

Development tooling runs on Windows™ only and includes Design Studio tools that run standalone or plugged into an existing Eclipse standard workbench, and a Software Developer Kit for interfacing to WebSphere TX in a custom programming environment. WebSphere Transformation Extender Design Studio is capable of importing nearly any industry format when available to industry communities such as XML schema. All WebSphere TX implementations require at least one order of WebSphere Transformation Extender Design Studio to develop, test, and deploy transformations.

WebSphere Transformation Extender Launcher Agent includes an inbound HTTP agent for WebSphere Transformation Extender. This enables WebSphere Transformation Extender with Launcher to listen and respond to HTTP requests. WebSphere Transformation Extender Launcher Agent requires a base edition of WebSphere TX.

WebSphere Transformation Extender industry packs provide capabilities that are ready to use to integrate a range of industry-standard data formats with your enterprise infrastructure. Industry packs can enable developers to accelerate the delivery of transformation solutions by providing predefined type tree templates, conversion maps, and in selected packs, provide validation maps and tools to help remove risk from projects that require conformance to mandatory and advisory guidelines required by the regulatory body or industry service provider.

WebSphere Transformation Extender industry packs, used in conjunction with WebSphere Transformation Extender, a universal data transformation engine, provide organizations with an infrastructure that can help:

WebSphere Transformation Extender industry packs support the following standards:

Charge metrics definitions

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

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

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.

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 webpage 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 has been 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_sp ecific_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.

Statement of good security practices

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.
