Bridge to CA Technologies Endevor

CA Endevor is a common configuration management and deployment tool used to manipulate program source code, load modules, and JCL in order to control and drive application transfer to operations.

The new Rational Programming Patterns-Endevor bridge allows users to integrate objects generated by Rational Programming Patterns into the Endevor environment through Rational Team Concert™ features. It allows the user to know in Rational Programming Patterns where the generated objects will be managed (environment, stage, system, subsystem, and type). In Endevor, the context of the source objects in Rational Programming Patterns can also be traced: library code, Rational Team Concert stream identification, user, date, and hour of generation.

Migration process improvements

The migration process continues to be optimized to help decrease its cost by improving the postmigration reporting and by removing the last generation differences between Pacbase and Rational Programming Patterns generator, thus reducing any need for regression tests after the transition.

Enriched migrated entities scope

Secondary types of Pacbase entities that have nevertheless been identified as critical for migration are now supported by the migration process, such as Input Aids and Merise objects. A new model inheritance mechanism also allows a child entity to subscribe to its parent modifications at the design level.

Quality control enhancements

Platform capabilities to control customer-defined development standards have been enhanced by providing new quality rules for Rational Programming Patterns design and generated COBOL files and by adapting the new Rational Developer for z V9.0 COBOL Source Code Quality Rules.

Ergonomics improvements

Rational Programming Patterns ergonomics continue to be improved by providing WYSIWYG-like functions for the screen editor (screen simulator), a brand new model and source code comparator, and a wizard to create and update COBOL structured code which is specific to the specific native COBOL code inserted in the Rational Programming Patterns generated programs.

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 accessing 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.

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.

System i Software Maintenance applies

No

Educational allowance available

Not applicable

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.
