Terms and Conditions
WebSphere Development Studio for iSeries (5722-WDS) includes host tools (ILE RPG, ILE COBOL, ILE C and C++, and ADTS) and the workstation AD tools included in WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries V4. Customers may install the WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries V4 (media kit LK3T-8377-00) for developing iSeries applications onto an unlimited number of workstations that are connected to the iSeries server to which 5722-WDS is licensed, without paying additional licensing fees.
Software License Keys
WebSphere Development Studio for iSeries has a single software license key for the entire product. The license key will be shipped with each order of 5722-WDS. The host tools will be installed on the iSeries server as options. The workstation-based tools will be installed directly onto the workstation or LAN.
The host tools (ILE RPG, ILR COBOL, ILE C and C++, and ADTS) in 5722-WDS are included in the keyed media set which is shipped with each OS/400 order. The WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries, which contains the workstation-based AD tools, will be shipped when 5722-WDS is ordered.
Application Development Manager and Application Dictionary Services are offered as optionally orderable priced features of 5722-WDS.
The following V3 products have a reduced price upgrade to 5722-WDS:
V4 Upgrades Customers who have a V4 license to one or more of the products (5769-CB1, 5769-CL3, 5769-CX2, 5769-CX5, 5769-PW1, 5769-RG1, 5769-WDS) are entitled to a no additional charge upgrade to 5722-WDS if they have a current software subscription contract. Customers purchase iSeries software subscription at the server level. The above V4 AS/400 or iSeries licensed programs are licensed to run on only one machine at a time. Although there are multiple upgrade paths to 5722-WDS, customers are only entitled to one upgrade to WebSphere Development Studio per server with software subscription and having a license for one or more of the V4 products listed above. Once a customer upgrades from one of these V4 products to 5722-WDS, they are no longer licensed to the individual V4 products listed above.
Customers at V5R1 of 5722-WDS who have a current software subscription contract can upgrade to V5R2 of 5722-WDS for no additional charge.
All customers who acquire 5722-WDS (via an initial purchase or an upgrade) will receive a Proof of Entitlement (PoE). Customers who purchased V4 products listed above under the IBM International Program License Agreement (IPLA) terms also received a PoE for the products which they purchased. In an upgrade transaction, the new PoE fully replaces the old PoEs. Therefore, customers who upgrade from V4 to V5 of WebSphere Development Studio must destroy the V4 PoE for each product listed above.
