iSeries Access (5722-XW1)
iSeries Client Access is now called iSeries Access since the product provides data connectivity from other systems and platforms to iSeries servers.
iSeries Access for Web: iSeries Access for Web runs on WebSphere Application Server V4 (the V5R1 version of iSeries Access for Web runs on WebSphere Application Server V3.5) and on Apache Software Foundation's Jakarta Tomcat. Also, this version can be configured to run on more than one Web application server concurrently. New functions introduced in this release include:
As part of the WebSphere V4 environment, the following enhancements are included in Host Publisher:
Web Services, an application integration technology based on open standards and implemented in middleware, provides a way for applications to connect and interact on the Web easier and more efficiently. Host Publisher Integration Objects and EJB Access Beans are enabled to become Web Services.
Multilanguage support : On the server, you can use Host Publisher Server Administration and view the Host Publisher documentation in languages other than the server's default language.
Software Maintenance Utility, a new command-line tool, can help you apply software fixes. If you involve the IBM Support Center, this tool scans the product and creates a package containing documentation and files for the IBM support team to use in troubleshooting.
iSeries Access for Wireless: This provides access to iSeries administrative functions and development tools intended for wireless devices such as personal digital assistants (PDAs) and Internet-enabled phones. Since no iSeries Access (5722-XW1) license is required to use iSeries Access for Windows, it is delivered with OS/400. Additional information about this product is available in the OS/400 announcement, refer to Software Announcement 202-123 , dated June 4, 2002.
Client Access Family (5722-XW1): Client Access Family (5722-XW1) customers who are running OS/400 V5R1 and have software subscription can acquire and use the V5R2 versions of the following products by ordering the 5722-XW1 refresh:
iSeries ODBC Driver for Linux (5733-LO1) (Web Download Only)
Linux programs written to the ODBC interface can access DB2® UDB for iSeries using the iSeries ODBC Driver for Linux. This ODBC driver is based on the ODBC driver in the iSeries Access for Windows product. Like that driver, the ODBC Driver for Linux uses the iSeries database host servers as the access point to the server, using a socket connection.
WebSphere Application Server V4 (5733-WS4, 5733-WA4)
WebSphere is a set of software products that help you develop and manage high-performance Web site to ease the transition from simple Web publishing to advanced e-business Web applications.
V5R2 iSeries offers two WebSphere options to choose from:
WebSphere Application Server V4 Advanced Single Server Edition for iSeries (5733-WS4)
WebSphere Application Server V4 Advanced Edition for iSeries (5733-WA4)
WebSphere Commerce (5724-A18)
WebSphere Commerce for iSeries V5.4
Tap into the vast Internet market, increase your business, and improve your productivity by developing a business-to-consumer or business-to-business Web site with WebSphere Commerce Professional Edition (WCPE) or WebSphere Commerce Business Edition (WCBE).
CICS® Transaction Server for iSeries (5722-DFH)
Programs written for the CICS Clients and the CICS Transaction Gateway can access CICS transactions on iSeries over a TCP/IP network. This provides an identical function to what is available only over SNA networks.
CICS client/server programming allows existing host-based applications to
be enabled for client environments. The CICS Transaction Gateway
enables these same applications to be used in Web serving environments.
Both of these environments are available through either SNA or TCP/IP
DB2 UDB Extenders V7.2 (5722-DE1)
The DB2 UDB Extenders for iSeries V7.2, combining the XML Extender and the Text Extender, provides functions that utilize the Independent Auxiliary Storage Pools (IASPs) provided by the operating system. Additional functions improve performance and usability.
XML Extender enhancements in OS/400 V5R2:
Text Extender enhancements in OS/400 V5R2:

Terms and Conditions
PID WebSphere(R) Application Server 5733-WA3 Advanced Edition for iSeries, V3.5 WebSphere Application Server 5733-WA4 Advanced Edition for iSeries, V4 WebSphere Application Server 5733-WS4 Advanced Single Server Edition for iSeries, V4 WebSphere Commerce Professional 5724-A18 Edition for iSeries, V5.4 WebSphere Commerce Business 5724-A18 Edition for iSeries, V5.4
The flexibility of subcapacity pricing is announced for selected products running on IBM iSeries and AS/400® hardware capable of logical partitioning. This allows customers to pay for software based on the number of processors in each logical partition where the program is defined (runs) rather than the total number of processors in the machine. LPAR was introduced at V4R4 and is the earliest release where these new terms could apply. This announcement does not change program service dates for V4R4. For details on Passport Advantage and compatible OS/400® releases, refer to the individual product announcements.
Subcapacity licensing permits a customer to license a product for use on less than the full capacity (in processors) of the machine. A product must be isolated to a logical partition using IBM-provided tools to be eligible for subcapacity licensing. The products listed above can be optionally subcapacity licensed on iSeries and AS/400 hardware capable of logical partitioning.
In the future, subcapacity licensed customers will be required to send license manager software inventory logs to IBM. These logs will be audited for license compliance.
Customers may choose to license the eligible products either for full capacity (as in the past) or subcapacity of the machine, depending on their requirements.
Currently, the above software is priced by the full capacity of a machine under terms that permit customers to reallocate authorizations to use this software among the customer's machines. With respect to previously acquired authorizations for this software, IBM will permit the customer to take advantage of subcapacity pricing under the condition that the customer agrees to a restriction on reallocation of authorizations among the customer's machines. The customer must agree that when they choose to reallocate authorizations from one machine to another machine, all authorizations allocated to the first machine must be reallocated to the other machine. The authorizations on a machine may not be reallocated among multiple machines.
With subcapacity pricing, the number of processors that need to be licensed is the aggregation of all processors, including partial shares of a processor, across all partitions of a single machine (where the program is defined), rounded up to the next highest whole number.
The licensing and pricing of these products is based on the whole number of processors. On iSeries hardware, processor units are used by the system to size partitions. One processor unit is equal to the size of one dedicated processor. Processor units are not licensed or priced they are only used to define the size of a partition. For example, if a 4-way iSeries machine has WebSphere Advanced Application Server running in two partitions sized at 0.6 processor units and 0.7 processor units, the total number of processing units is 1.3. Since the product is priced and licensed based on the whole number of processors, this customer would need two processor licenses of WebSphere Advanced Application Server.
The number of processor units is independent of the number of physical processors running the logical partitions. For example, if a customer has WebSphere Advanced Application Server in a partition sized at one processor, which is divided equally across four physical processors of the machine (in other words, the partition is using 0.25 processor units of four physical processors), then this customer has one processor unit and would need one processor license of WebSphere Advanced Application Server.
The remaining terms and conditions are unchanged by this announcement.
