Features of MQSeries Everyplace
Features New to This Release
MQSeries Everyplace supports a wide range of platforms from device platforms, such as EPOC, to server platforms, such as AIX. All queue managers optionally support queues and messaging, but additionally most server platforms can be used to give connectivity to other MQSeries servers by using the Bridge (available in conjunction with MQSeries Everyplace Bridge capacity units).
A new node for MQSI:
This new node will be available with MQSeries Integrator.
Devices can be connected together in various configurations. A typical setup would be many devices connected to a single gateway, with that gateway connected to one or more MQSeries systems or other gateways.
Although it is convenient to describe machines running MQSeries Everyplace as clients (devices) or servers for the purposes of configuration and installation, the pricing of MQSeries Everyplace for Multiplatforms, V1.2 makes no distinction except by the operating system being used.
MQSeries Everyplace supports HTTP, TCP/IP, and UDP as transports.
All queue managers support synchronous messaging operations, such as the ability to access queues to get, put, and browse messages. If a queue manager is configured with local queues it will also have asynchronous messaging capability (note that this function is not available on the Native Client).
In this way, access to message content can be selectively secured and the data can be protected, for example, on backing storage (not available in Native Client.)
Encryption methods available include MARS, DES, triple DES, RC4, and RC6. These can offer up to 128-bit security where permitted, and are available in both editions of the product.
MQSeries Everyplace is a member of the IBM Pervasive Computing family, which includes the WebSphere Everyplace Suite.
MQSeries and MQSeries Everyplace both have the advantages of:
MQSeries Everyplace adds further features necessary to allow users to continue to work and access important data while away from their normal working or home environment.
Using the latest mobile devices, businesses that reach customers and workers directly in their homes or while they are on the road will have a considerable advantage in the marketplace. With MQSeries Everyplace, the MQSeries family now allows business users to:
This product supersedes MQSeries Everyplace for Windows, Version 1.0 announced in Software Announcement 200-072 , dated April 4, 2000, and MQSeries Everyplace for Multiplatforms, announced in Software Announcement 200-342 , dated October 3, 2000. It is a repackaging of those products, extended to more platforms.
IBM Business Integration consists of five offerings under the MQSeries brand designed to complement each other.
e-business is accelerating the pace of change. Speed to market and quality of service are critical for success so companies need to be agile to survive. The MQSeries family provides a versatile platform for e-business.
MQSeries and MQSeries Everyplace are complementary offerings within the MQSeries base messaging family.
Positioning of MQSeries Everyplace and MQSeries
MQSeries Everyplace does not have certain MQSeries features and functions, such as:
Messages and some publications are translated to French, German, Spanish, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Japanese. These will be available within 30 days of U.S. English planned availability.

Performance of the system is dependent on the speed and latency of
transmission links, the speed of processors and storage media used in
devices and servers, and the total demand on server resources.
Server and client platforms. These are two lists (Group A and Group B) of platforms which are grouped by the size of the computer and operating system they run on, not by any usage configuration or connection. Client and server are used in their general computing sense as in "client/server" but have no ordering or pricing significance.
A third group (Group C) relates to use on the 4690OS platform only.
MQSeries Everyplace Gateway is a queue manager configured with the MQSeries Everyplace bridge to connect to other MQSeries products. It is not required to connect to MQSeries Integrator via the MQSeries Everyplace/SCADA node.
Distribution of MQSeries Everyplace with Applications: MQSeries Everyplace classes may only be distributed with applications with an agreement from IBM or where all the users already have entitlement to use them. Otherwise users must provide the necessary classes themselves and have their own entitlement to use them.
Even where allowed, distribution may only be under the terms of the license agreement supplied with the product.
Similarly, for the Palm device, shared libraries may only be distributed with applications with an agreement from IBM or where all the users already have entitlement to use them. Otherwise users must provide the necessary shared libraries themselves, and have the necessary entitlement to use them.
MQSeries Everyplace Capacity Unit Requirement List
This table applies to all three types of MQSeries Everyplace capacity units:
Required MQSeries Everyplace V1.2 Capacity Description Units Intel(3) Uniprocessor machines or 2 4690OS with 1 to 5 point-of-sale connected Intel 2-Way SMP Machines 4 + RISC 1-2 Processors per box/SP(TM) node or 4690OS with 6 to 20 point-of-sale connected Intel/RISC 3-8 Processors 8 per box/SP node or 4690OS with 21-50 point-of-sale connected Intel/RISC 9-23 Processors 16 per box/SP node 4690OS with 51-150 point-of-sale connected Intel/RISC 24 or more processors per box/SP node or 30 4690OS with 150+ point-of-sale connected
Only the Retail Edition may be used with the IBM 4690OS. Requirements shown are per store with one machine running 4690OS using MQSeries Everyplace. Pricing for several machines running 4690OS in the same store may be calculated by using the average POS per machine running the 4690OS, or refer to IBM for pricing of these installations.
Additional capacity unit requirements for use on second 4690OS machines on "warm standby" are 50% of those for machines in production use. "Warm standby" means that a machine is up and running, but not sending or receiving MQSeries Everyplace messages, or using queues.

Capacity units specific to MQSeries Everyplace are new to this release. MQSeries Everyplace Bridge (but not Network or Retail) capacity units are transferable across MQSeries platforms that appear in the same MQSeries Transfer Group (refer to table below). This product is in transfer group C, whereas previous versions were in transfer group B. These transfer groups do not relate to MQSeries Everyplace platform price groups. One MQSeries Everyplace Bridge capacity unit is equivalent to one MQSeries capacity unit.
The capacity units are not transferable between products in different MQSeries Transfer Groups, although customers with Passport Advantage upgrade protection may be eligible to upgrade to the present release for no additional charge.
The following table shows the current MQSeries Transfer Groups and the platforms, within each group, eligible for generic capacity unit transferability. The Version.Release levels shown refer to MQSeries base products (for example, MQSeries for ...).

Customer Responsibilities: Use of MQSeries Everyplace on any platform is chargeable. The price depends on three factors; the platform used, the size of the machine, and whether the MQSeries Everyplace Bridge is being used.
It is the customers' responsibility to ensure that they have the correct Proof of Entitlement to run on the platforms on which MQSeries Everyplace is deployed. Refer to the Ordering Information section for charging information. Use with z/OS (OS/390®) is not permitted.
Installability: MQSeries Everyplace is supplied in two boxed editions and is also available for download. One edition contains all components which may (with appropriate use authorization) be used on any permitted platform, including the MQSeries Everyplace Bridge. The Retail edition contains code for 4690OS, and is only supported, and use permitted, on that operating system.
Direct installation is supported only on the following platforms:
Refer to the Ordering Information section for requirements when using these editions and components.
The package contains:
This program when downloaded from a Web site, contains the applicable IBM
license agreement, and License Information (LI), if appropriate and will
be presented for acceptance at the time of installation of the program.
The license and LI will be stored in a directory such as LICENSE.TXT for
Security, Auditability, and Control
The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.
Program package and charge features for device platform usage are available in one packs only.
Use of MQSeries Everyplace for development and prototyping is not chargeable, but non-development (productive) use of MQSeries Everyplace on any platform is chargeable. The price depends on three factors; the platform used, the size of the machine, and whether the MQSeries Everyplace Bridge is being used. Three combinations are valid:
Note: For IBM 4690OS, the Retail edition is used instead of the Network edition, and Retail Capacity units instead of Network capacity units. Price is based on the configuration in the store, not machine size. Refer to the Planning Information section.
Third-party applications which contain MQSeries Everyplace classes may be used without additional proof of entitlement (capacity units or device platform use authorization) if the supplier of the application has agreed this with IBM. MQSeries Everyplace classes (or Palm libraries) may not be included in applications except by prior arrangement with IBM, or where the use of these classes is to expedite distribution within the same enterprise, and use is already covered by use authorizations or capacity units.
There is no charge for use of MQSeries Everyplace for Multiplatforms, V1.2 on any allowed platform provided that it is used solely for application development and testing.
Note that MQSeries Everyplace deployment on server platforms is priced by MQSeries Everyplace capacity units. These capacity units are not the same as other MQSeries family capacity units, but may be interchanged (in the case of Bridge capacity units) via the transfer group table. The way that capacity unit requirement is calculated is different for Group A than for Group C (4690OS).
For definitions of server (Groups A, C) and device (Group B) platforms, and machine sizes, refer to the MQSeries Everyplace Pricing group list below, and the table in the Planning Information section.
Server Platforms (Group A)
Device platforms (Group B)

MQSeries Everyplace, Version 1.2: Available until June 30, 2003
MQSeries Everyplace code is directly supported on the following platforms:
Its use is also permitted, but not directly supported, on any operating system (except those running on OS/390 z/OS) which:
These platforms are supported on the basis that the JVM environment is equivalent to that on directly supported platforms . IBM will do what it can to support a customer's chosen platform, but cannot always provide service directly on these platforms since it may not have a suitable test facility to investigate the problem.
Problems found on these platforms which cannot be reproduced by the customer or by IBM service on one of the directly supported platforms should be referred by the customer to the JVM owner as a compatibility problem. If problems can be demonstrated on directly supported hardware platforms, they will be fixed on those platforms.
Installation is only tested and described for a subset of the fully supported platforms. Refer to the Planning Information section.
The prices provided in this announcement are suggested retail prices for the U.S. only and are provided for your information only. Dealer prices may vary, and prices may also vary by country.
