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. Rational Team Concert also has built-in planning and process support that can help teams using Agile or traditional development processes.

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 . Used in combination with other Rational IDE offerings such as Rational Developer for System z and Rational Application Developer for WebSphere software, they provide a comprehensive solution for developing applications across nearly any combination of platforms and languages.

What's new in Version 8.5

Rational Developer for Power Systems Software Performance Advisor (Performance Advisor) for C and C++ for AIX and Linux on Power

This is a new class of tools. It combines dynamic code analysis and profiling capabilities together with performance management features and expert guidance, all in a workflow-driven framework that helps you optimize the performance of C and C++ workloads as deployed to AIX and to Linux on Power .

This tool delivers performance analysis of C/C++ applications with capabilities such as hot spot analysis that are linked with performance-annotated source code and views for program understanding. It includes support for analyzing time spent in inlined functions and it can show the results directly in the source view. It also allows you to compare two profiles of the application in order to easily detect regressions in performance across two builds.

Performance Advisor function additionally provides detailed recommendations for how you might improve the performance of the application. Each recommendation is shown together with a confidence indicator that suggests the probability that following the recommendation will yield a measurable gain. In this way the framework helps you decide how to prioritize performance work you have available to devote to performance work.

The Performance Advisor function can create a scorecard for your application, using best practices from our Power hardware, operating system and compiler teams to provide automated recommendations through general analysis of your application without needing to even run it.

The Performance Advisor function is built with intimate knowledge of the Power hardware, operating systems, XL compilers, and best-tuning practices to provide expert guidance for tuning the application. By using sampling technology, it can provide sophisticated profiling capabilities without significantly slowing down the runtime of the application.

The Performance Advisor function manages the vast and different performance information generated by the underlying profiling tools and presents the developer with an integrated, easy-to-use interface that will allow them to quickly and effectively tune their applications.

Porting and Migration Advisor (for AIX and Linux )

This is a new class of tool set that combines static code analysis capabilities with expert system rules that work together in a framework to help you migrate or port your C/C++ and COBOL applications to AIX and Linux on Power .

Enhanced data development tools

Rational Developer for Power integrates with Data Studio from IBM Optim™ to provide enhanced data tooling capabilities. The functions now supported include the following:

Additional functions are available for DB2® for AIX and Linux including Visual Explain and query formatting.

Code coverage analysis capability (for C, C++ and COBOL for AIX and Linux )

You can now view which sections of your C, C++ and COBOL code are exercised when your applications are run during unit testing or debugging. In addition to seeing which specific paths are run, the new code coverage capability also provides useful coverage statistics that may be used as inputs to your quality/risk management processes.

Best-practice-based build configuration documentation

This provides guidance on decisions such as compiler, runtime, and debug options that are specific to various kinds of build targets such as unit test, integration test, performance test, or production.

Support for multiple build specifications

You can define multiple sets of specifications to build projects for multiple targets. A 'target' as used here could refer to a purpose or promotion level (such as "test" or "production) or it could refer to target platform (for example, AIX on Power versus Linux on Power ).

Enhancements to basic C/C++ IDE when working in remote projects

Code folding and semantic highlighting are now available for C/C++ remote projects.

Light-weight debuggable executables

It is now possible to generate debug hooks and information into a side file so it does not enlarge the executables that you deploy into your production environments (or that you distribute to your end-user customers, if you are an ISV). The side file can remain in your development environment. Then you can obtain core files from the production (or customer) environment and attach to them with the debugger, using the same build version together with the side file. In this way, you can debug just as richly as if you were using a fully instrumented executable in the production (or customer) environment.

Live outline view for RPG applications

The outline review now refreshes as you change code, based on desktop-side parsing of RPG. This saves time and raises the developer's productivity.

Enhancements to the i Project Perspective

These enhancements improve the integration of the RPG and COBOL Development Tools for i with Rational Team Concert for IBM i development.

There is full two-way synchronization between i Projects in a local workspace and their associated libraries on remote IBM i systems. Users can also view the text description of their objects and source members in the Properties view when they are selected and have a Compile menu from which they can submit compile commands.

These improvements bring the i Project capabilities closer to parity with the capabilities that are available when you are using the Remote Systems Explorer perspective.

Service reliability enhancements

The server-side explorer and debug agents are improved so that when environmental conditions cause them to fail, they do so more gracefully. For example, they will now publish explanations of what conditions led to failures. They will provide diagnostics data for post-mortem analyses. They will let the desktop IDE know when they crash, so users are not left sitting and watching a progress icon that mysteriously never reaches completion.

Enhanced support for 64-bit desktop operating system

The product itself can now make use of expanded memory space using 64-bit JVM

Accessibility by people with disabilities

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

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

L-JWOG-8S7RVP

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 five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as 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 Subscription and Support (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

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

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 presented 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.

Variable charges apply

Top rule
Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

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.

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.
