Overview
Bottom rule

With IBM Rational Host Access Transformation Services (HATS), you can rapidly transform the end user experience of your 3270 applications running on IBM System z® and your 5250 applications running on IBM i without modifying those applications. Using the HATS rules-based transformation technology, the screens of your applications can be rendered with intuitive user interfaces. You can further improve the appearance, usability, and navigation of your applications by creating screen transformations and skip-screen macros.

HATS web applications are developed to run in an IBM WebSphere Application Server or a WebSphere Portal Server runtime, and your end-users access the applications with standard web browsers, including mobile device browsers. HATS rich client applications are developed to run in the IBM Lotus Notes Client or IBM Lotus Expeditor Client, or in an Eclipse rich client platform implementation to provide native client applications targeted for a user's desktop.

HATS can also be used to transform and expand the connectivity of your terminal applications by extending the proven business logic as standard Web Services. These services are service-oriented architecture (SOA) assets that can be deployed as reusable components and can be integrated into new internal applications or applications outside your enterprise.

For ordering, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: AE001).

Description
Bottom rule

IBM Rational HATS consists of two components:

  • The toolkit
  • The runtime

The IBM Rational HATS Toolkit is a set of plug-ins for the Eclipse-based IBM Rational Software integrated development environment (IDE) tools. The HATS Toolkit enables you to develop new applications that generate GUIs for your 3270 and 5250 applications. Develop your new applications iteratively, previewing and saving each change you make. Over time, or as quickly as desired, your HATS applications can be streamlined, making them easier to use. Your new applications can be accessed from a browser, portlet, rich client, or even a mobile device.

With the HATS toolkit you can create a GUI suited to your business needs and standards. Hide unnecessary information, organize data into tables, or display only required input fields. You can provide a drop-down list of valid values for an input field, change the layout and the contents of the user interface, and provide navigation buttons.

The HATS runtime is included in the HATS application, which will be deployed to a production environment, such as WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere Portal Server, or the IBM Lotus Notes client. End-users interact with the HATS application through the HATS GUI and data is sent back and forth between the user and the host application.

Regardless of the kind of HATS application that you are creating, you may decide that basic customization is enough. But with HATS, you can do much more. For example:

  • Use HATS macro support to provide streamlined navigation through multiple host screens
  • Take your end-users directly to the first screen that you want them to use, bypassing other screens
  • Use macros or the screen combination function to combine data from several host screens into one HATS GUI panel
  • Use business logic and global variables to integrate your host applications with other back-end systems in your enterprise, as well as with your business partners' systems

From HATS macros, you can generate HATS Integration Objects, which are Java™ beans that encapsulate interactions with a host application, and use them to create web pages and web services. You can also use HATS Integration Objects in Enterprise JavaBeans™.

New in IBM Rational HATS V8.0

Dojo widget support

With IBM Rational HATS V8.0 you can use Dojo widgets to improve the functionality and appearance of your HATS applications. The Dojo framework is a popular user interface framework based on standard HTML, JavaScript™, and cascading style sheets (CSS). You can use HATS Dojo widgets to render certain HATS host components in screen transformations, and then use the Dojo Toolkit and IBM extensions that are integrated with IBM Rational IDE offerings to further customize HATS Dojo widgets and Integration Object input and output properties. This support lets you customize the HATS user interface in a standard way.

RESTful web services

With HATS V8.0 you can create JAX-RS RESTful web services, which provide an alternative to the traditional Web Services Definition Language (WSDL)-style web service implementation and may be more appropriate for your particular needs. RESTful web services use HTTP instead of SOAP, and may require less bandwidth, which may be useful for devices like mobile phones and PDAs. In addition, use of the HTTP caching infrastructure (with the HTTP GET method) may improve performance for data that can be cached.

HATS runtime support for RESTful web services requires the JAX-RS support included in the WebSphere Application Server Version V6.1 Feature Packs, or in the feature pack for Web 2.0 for WebSphere Application Server Version V7.0. WebSphere Application Server V8.0 includes the required JAX-RS support.

JSR 286 standard portlets

HATS V8.0 extends its support for the standard Java Portlet Specification API Version 1 (JSR 168) to support development of HATS portlets that comply with Version 2 of the standard (JSR 286). Included is support for portlet communication using JSR 286 events, support for Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP), and overriding connection parameters and global variables using portlet edit mode.

Automatic disconnect and refresh for JSR 286 standard portlets

AJAX-based, auto-disconnect and auto-refresh functions, previously available only for HATS web screen transformation applications, are available for HATS JSR 286 standard portlet applications. You can improve the performance and usability of HATS JSR 286 portlet applications through the use of these AJAX-based functions.

The auto-disconnect function provides the ability to detect when the browser is out of contact with your HATS application for a predefined period of time. When detected, disconnect processing is performed.

The purpose of the auto-refresh function is to automatically refresh the HATS portlet if the underlying host screen changes. This eliminates the requirement for the user to click the Refresh button to see asynchronously changed screens from the host.

iPad support

With HATS V8.0 you can create web applications that extend access to your host applications to iPad devices.

Simplified specification for rich client, type-ahead support

Rich client, type-ahead support enables the user to begin typing data intended for input fields on the next host screen (or screens), before they are received and processed by HATS. As the next screen (or screens) are received, HATS sends the previously typed data including any keys that submit the input to the host. This support can now be enabled using the Enable type-ahead support setting in the project editor.

Screen capture support for video terminal (VT) connections

Screen captures of VT host screens can now be used to create or customize a macro using the Visual Macro Editor and as the check-in screen when configuring pooling.

Support for the latest development environments

HATS V8.0 includes support of the latest IBM Rational development environments, such as IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software V8.0. Refer to the Software prerequisites for more information.

Support for the latest runtimes

New supported HATS runtime environments include WebSphere Application Server V8.0, WebSphere Portal V7.0, Eclipse V3.5 and V3.6, Lotus Notes V8.5.2, and Lotus Expeditor V6.2.2. See Software prerequisites for more information.

Bidirectional language support enhancements

Significant bidirectional language support enhancements have been made in HATS V8.0, including RESTful Web services support for bidirectional sessions, improved portlet communication support, Arabic language translation of the HATS Toolkit, and other bidirectional language ease of use improvements.

Charge metrics definitions

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the Program. The Program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the Program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User given access to the Program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case the following applies: Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate User of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Processor Value Unit

Processor Value Unit (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 (see 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_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.

Notes

Some programs may require licenses for the program AND what is being managed. In that case, the following applies: In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.

Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis ONLY. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.

A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies: Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the Referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the Referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the Referenced program is licensed.

Express and Workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies: The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM Express and Middleware programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.

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.

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.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
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 three years from the general availability date, as long as your 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 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

For clarification, note that 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 for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software and Technical Support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at
