Powerful Open Standards Platform
WebSphere Application Server J2EE support simplifies enterprise
applications by basing them on standardized, modular components. These
components can handle many details of application behavior automatically,
often without complex programming. J2EE V1.3, available in WebSphere
Application Server V5, offers simplified business integration via J2EE
connectors and JMS. Container-managed persistence and Java API XML
Programming (JAXP) simplify the development and distribution of
Messaging Integration JMS Provider
The JMS API improves programmer productivity by defining a common set of
messaging concepts and programming strategies. It simplifies enterprise
development allowing loosely coupled, reliable, asynchronous interactions
among J2EE components and legacy systems capable of messaging. A
developer can easily add new behavior to a J2EE application with existing
business events by adding a new message-driven bean to operate on
specific business events. The JMS provider offers an enterprise
messaging transport infrastructure out of the box for 24 x 7 use of
Web Services New Features

WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries contains 11 CD-ROMs.
WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries contains
36 CD-ROMs. 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 future reference.
Security, Auditability, and Control
WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries uses the security and auditability features of the iSeries.
The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.
Customers with current IBM Software Subscription for iSeries contracts purchased before February 12, 2002, (5733-SM1, -SM2, -SM3, -SM4, -SM5, -SMM) are entitled to upgrade to WebSphere Application Server V5.0 for iSeries if they have a license to a predecessor product (5733-WA3, 5733-WA4). Customers with current Software Maintenance (5733-M37 or 5733-M38) are also entitled to upgrade to WebSphere Application Server V5.0 for iSeries.
WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries are stand-alone products with one charge unit processors. They are available in units of one.
Unless you agree to subcapacity terms, a license is required for every processor on each server.
Under full-capacity terms, for example, the prices of WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries are based on the number of processors in the system or node executing all or any part of the WebSphere Application Server V5 application. Four-way symmetric multiprocessor systems, whether stand-alone systems or nodes in a larger system, require four WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries processor licenses.
WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries includes a deployment manager that allows it to manage server clusters. It has an embedded application server built in for use exclusively by the deployment manager. You are entitled to install the deployment manager on the same machine as the base Application Server that comes with the Network Deployment configuration. To install the deployment manager by itself on a dedicated machine, you must acquire and allocate a Network Deployment Proof of Entitlement for each CPU on such machine. Only application servers that have Network Deployment licenses can be managed using WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5.
The flexibility of subcapacity pricing continues to be available for WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries. You can 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.
Subcapacity licensing lets you license a product for use on less than the full capacity (in processors) of the machine. WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries can be optionally subcapacity licensed if they are used in an iSeries logical partition and the following additional requirements are met for all machines that you choose to subcapacity license this program. Subcapacity license customers must:
Customers who use subcapacity licensing and fail to send software inventory data to IBM may be subject to additional charges.
Software inventory data must be sent to IBM for every iSeries machine that has WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries licensed under subcapacity terms. You may choose to use iSeries Navigator and Service Agent to collect software inventory from several machines and use a Service Agent on a central system to send the data to IBM.
For additional information on iSeries Navigator, visit:
For additional information on the Service Agent, visit:
You can choose to license the eligible products either for full capacity (as in the past) or subcapacity of the machine, depending on your requirements.
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 four-way iSeries machine has WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries running in two partitions sized at 0.6 processor units and 0.7 processor units, the total number of processing units is 1.3. Because the product is priced and licensed based on the whole number of processors, this customer would need two processor licenses for WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries.
The number of processor units is independent of the number of physical processors running the logical partitions. For example, if you have either WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries or WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5 for iSeries in a partition sized at one processor divided equally across four physical processors of the machine (0.25 processor units of four physical processors), then you have one processor unit and you would need one processor license of such product (that is, either WebSphere Application Server V5.0 for iSeries or WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V5.0 for iSeries). If you increase the number of processors in logical partitions running a subcapacity licensed product (by a quantity that makes it round up to a higher whole number), you must acquire additional license entitlements to cover the higher number of processors. For example, if you have a partition sized at 1.6 processor units and have licensed two processors of WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries, and you change the size of the partition (either dynamically or via operator involvement) to 2.6 processor units, then you need to acquire one additional processor license.
