Rational Developer for Power Systems Software

  • Delivers a rich set of integrated development tools for organizations creating, maintaining, migrating, or porting applications to IBM Power Systems. These tools include remote file management, searching, editing, refactoring, application analysis, build, and debug. Development is supported in both connected and disconnected modes and all of the tools are integrated into an Eclipse workbench.
  • Supports RPG, COBOL, DDS, CL, C/C++ on IBM i, Java, C/C++ on Linux, C/C++, and COBOL on AIX languages.
  • The Power Tools editions also support Java, web or rich web, and SOA development for distributed platforms (by bundling Rational Application Developer Standard Edition).
  • Comes packaged in multiple forms, many of which are purchasable through both eConfig and Passport Advantage. In general there are three types of offerings:
    • Sets of tool features.
    • Studio bundles that combine tools with compilers.
    • Power Tools bundles designed to support Java-based application modernization efforts. These combine the Power Systems tools with IBM Rational Application Developer Standard Edition.

Following is the list of chargeable features that comprise these packagings:

  • RPG and COBOL Development Tools for i
  • C/C++ Development Tools for AIX
  • COBOL Development Tools for AIX
  • C/C++ Development Tools for Linux
  • C/C++ Development Studio for AIX (combines C/C++ Development Tools for AIX with the XL C/C++ for AIX compilers - available through Passport Advantage only)
  • COBOL Development Studio for AIX - Combines COBOL Development Tools for AIX with the COBOL for AIX compiler (available through Passport Advantage only)
  • C and C++ Development Studio for Linux - Combines C/C++ Development Tools for Linux with the XL C/C++ for Linux compilers (available through Passport Advantage only)
  • Power Tools for i - Combines RPG and COBOL Developer Tools for i with Rational Application Developer Standard Edition
  • Power Tools for AIX - Combines C/C++ Development Tools for AIX with Rational Application Developer Standard Edition

The basic tool sets (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) provide rich sets of integrated development tools for developing applications on IBM Power Systems. These include:

  • Eclipse-based development environment with integrated search, edit, analysis, build, and debug capabilities.
  • Access to remote files, processes, and shells on AIX and Linux, or to libraries, objects, members, IFS files, and jobs on IBM i.
  • Rich source editing support with content assist, outline view, color tokenizing, quick navigation, syntax checking, refactoring agents, and much more.
  • Visual editors for Data Description Specifications (DDS) display file and printer file source members on IBM i.
  • Integrated build support with error feedback.
  • Ability to debug with support for threads and real-time monitoring of variable changes.
  • Debug attachment to core files for postmortem analysis (AIX only).
  • Analysis tools that can visualize call, type, and include hierarchies for C and C++ on AIX and Linux and program calls and ILE bindings on IBM i.
  • Integration with Rational Team Concert for source control and Collaborative Application Lifecycle Management (C/ALM). Other C/ALM solutions that integrate with Eclipse can also be used.

The development tools in Rational Developer for Power Systems Software are designed to complement the IBM optimizing compiler offerings for Power Systems. These compilers include:

  • Rational Development Studio for i (formerly WebSphere® Development Studio for i)
  • IBM XL C for AIX and XL C/C++ for AIX
  • IBM XL C/C++ for Linux
  • IBM COBOL for AIX

All of the development tools provide integration with Rational Team Concert, a collaborative lifecycle management solution that offers integrated team collaboration, project dashboards, work items, source control, build, and reporting.

When combined, Rational Developer for Power Systems Software, IBM compilers, and Rational Team Concert provide a comprehensive solution for developing applications on IBM Power Systems.

What's new in Version 8.0.3

Support for 64-bit desktop operating systems

IBM now supports Rational Developer for Power Systems when used in 32-bit compatibility mode on 64-bit versions of Windows™ 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and Red Hat Linux desktop editions v5 and v6. For a complete list of supported client operating systems, refer to the Software requirements section.

AIX team productivity enhancements

It is now possible to index your AIX applications once, on the host, and to share that index across a development team. This frees up the time individual developers now spend building indices on their desktops, which can be considerable for large code bases.

Debugger enhancements

  • The integrated debuggers for AIX and Linux are enhanced with support for executables larger than 4 GB, and support RTTI for C++ classes
  • The integrated debugger for AIX has been enhanced to support debugging applications built with DWARF debug information on AIX V7.1.
  • The integrated debugger for Linux is enhanced to support debugging applications built using the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC).

Secure connection to IBM i development platforms

The Rational Developer for Power Remote Systems Explorer can now establish a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection to an IBM i host.

Migration and Porting Assistance Framework

A new rules-based framework is introduced, to help identify sections of code that may not migrate or scale smoothly when ported to AIX from other UNIX™ operating systems. A small initial set of rules (for COBOL) is included with this release, and the intent is to deliver additional rules over time with subsequent minor (fix) and major releases.

Support for GNU

IBM Customer Support is now available when using the GNU C and C++ compilers as part of Rational Developer for Power Systems Software

New licensing option

Fixed-term licenses (both Authorized User and Floating User) options are now available.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

A US Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) containing details on accessibility compliance can be requested at

http://www.ibm.com/able/product_accessibility/index.html

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

Rational Developer for Power Systems Software V8.0.3 is capable as of October 14, 2011, when used in accordance with associated IBM documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

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.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as 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 (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program 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. 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 number
Passport Advantage: L-JWOG-8JAKTF
AAS: GC52-1361-03

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 restriction

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.

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.
