What's new in Version 8.0

Linux support

A new feature has been added to Rational Developer for Power Systems Software called C and C++ Development Tools for Linux that provides rich C/C++ development tools for organizations developing C and C++ applications for Linux.

Linux client

Rational Developer for Power Systems Software now offers an x86 Linux client in addition to the Microsoft Windows client. Both clients are available for all features (C/C++ Development Tools for AIX, C/C++ Development Tools for Linux, COBOL Development Tools for AIX, and RPG and COBOL Development Tools for IBM i). Refer to the Software requirements section for a complete list of supported client operating systems.

Debug enhancements

The integrated C/C++ debugger for AIX and Linux has been enhanced to optionally allow all threads to be suspended when a breakpoint is hit. Previously, only the thread that hit the breakpoint was suspended.

Debug connections between the client and server for AIX and Linux can now be transported over an ssh tunnel. This resolves issues in previous releases where debug connections could not be established in certain network configurations, such as those involving network address translation. This issue does not affect IBM i debug connections.

New COBOL Development Tools for AIX capabilities

The COBOL Development Tools for AIX feature of Rational Developer for Power Systems Software includes many new source editing-related capabilities to improve developer productivity using the development tools when targeting IBM TXSeries®. These capabilities include:

  • Live syntax checking
  • Color tokenizing and syntax checking for embedded CICS® and SQL statements
  • Content assist for embedded SQL statements
  • Code templates
  • Snippets view support and predefined COBOL source snippets
  • Refactoring tool to select and extract source into a new paragraph

New C/C++ Development Tools for AIX and Linux capabilities

The C/C++ Development Tools for AIX and C/C++ Development Tools for Linux have been enhanced with the following capabilities:

  • New remote include hierarchy view that allows users to select a header file and visualize the include hierarchy.
  • New remote managed build for Remote C/C++ projects. Using remote managed build, makefiles are automatically generated by the tools so users do not have to create and maintain them. Users can control the tool chain, build commands, pre-build and post-build commands, and other settings through wizards and project properties.
  • Improved performance for remote indexing.

Power Tools

Rational Developer for Power Systems Software V8.0 adds two new Power Tools features that combine:

  • Rational Application Developer Standard Edition for WebSphere Software V8.0 with the RPG and COBOL Development Tools for i
  • Rational Application Developer Standard Edition for WebSphere Software V8.0 with the C and C++ Development Tools for AIX

IBM Rational Application Developer Standard Edition for WebSphere Software provides a rich set of tools for developing applications using Java, Java EE, service-oriented architecture (SOA), Portal, and Web 2.0 targeting IBM WebSphere run times. This includes wizards, visual designers, rich source editors, and integrated WebSphere Application Server test environments that simplify development and can help increase developer productivity.

The Power Tools packages provide an ideal solution for organizations that are integrating applications written in RPG or COBOL on IBM i or C/C++ on AIX with web services and web front-ends that leverage Java, Java EE, Web 2.0, SOA, or Portal. This allows developers to have a single, productive workbench with all their development tools integrated and allows the IT department to deploy and maintain a single development workbench image to all developers, helping to simplify and reduce operations costs.

Migrations and entitlements

Existing users of Rational Developer for i and Rational Developer for i for SOA Construction who are current on Subscription and Support are entitled to the RPG and COBOL Development Tools for i feature of Rational Developer for Power Systems Software. This entitlement is automatic in Passport Advantage®. In eConfig/AAS, this entitlement can be ordered using the no-charge feature codes for Rational Developer for Power Systems Software V8.0.

Top rule
Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

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.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) agreement applies for Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

License Information form numbers
BTP: L-JWOG-888KKC
BTO: GC52-1361-02

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).

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.

Volume orders (IVO)

Yes. Contact your IBM representative.

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage website at

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage
Usage restrictions

Yes. For additional information, refer to the License Information document that is available on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Software Subscription and Support applies

Yes. Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance), is now included in the Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support for the products announced in this announcement is provided by the Software Subscription and Support offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service enhances customer productivity by providing voice or electronic access into the IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option.

While your Software Subscription and Support 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, only 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, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

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

Software Subscription and Support does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

For additional information about the Passport Advantage Agreement, visit the Passport Advantage website at

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

All distributed software licenses include Software Subscription and Support for a period of 12 months from the date of acquisition, providing a streamlined way to acquire IBM software and assure technical support coverage for all licenses. Extending coverage, for a total of three years from date of acquisition, may be elected. For additional information, refer to Changes to Distributed Software Products Model for Products Outside Passport Advantage Software Announcement 201-201, dated July 10, 2001.

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.
