Description

Rich J2EE Open Standards Implementations

Full J2EE open standards implementations with rich, turbocharged enterprise Java implementations are built in with support for the full range of Java-based APIs and protocols, including:

  • Compliance with Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) 2.0, which adds the definition of message-driven beans that rely on JMS as the messaging transport for managing asynchronous transactions
  • Support for JDK 1.3 across operating system platforms
  • Improved Java security APIs in the distributed security model
  • Commands formerly provided through TCL scripts now performed using the new Java API

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 applications.

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 distributed applications.

Web Services — New Features

  • Create distributed applications developed with disparate tools and architectures over the Web.
  • UDDI Registry is a repository that allows storage of business units to describe basic services.
    • Users can find information about Web Services acting as a directory of services.
    • Developers can use rich security to publish and test their internal e-business applications in a private environment.
  • Web Services Gateway can help reduce development costs to make selected services available to different divisions within an enterprise, their customers, or partners either outside the firewall or to anyone who uses protocols. Developers and IT managers can externalize a Web service so that it can be invoked by users from outside the firewall.

Availability — Database Failover

WebSphere Application Server V5 for iSeries offers a deployment option with clustering and failover, enabling high availability and continuous operation of critical enterprise Java applications. An additional potential single point of failover with DB2® databases is removed in enterprise Java applications.

Security

Support for JCE, CSI V2, JSSE, and JAAS enables your partners to implement standards-based security within enterprise applications.

Performance

  • Enhanced workload management and dynamic caching performance management across multiple servers using sophisticated load balancing and clustering
  • Content-based routing for more effective session management
  • Improved user response time through enhanced caching
  • Programming interface to performance management parameters, enabling tighter integration by leading performance management tool vendors
  • Improved performance through best-of-breed performance management tools

Integrated Tools Support

WebSphere Application Developer (available separately) is an integrated Java development environment, based on the Open Eclipse framework, to implement Java and Web Services applications. Server administration tools include application assembly tool, debugger, and online trace.

Installability and Usability

  • Build solutions on one WebSphere Application Server configuration today and add or upgrade later based on future needs with little or no migration.
  • Improve the administration of WebSphere applications via browser-based UI and XML configuration plus additional automation of distributed systems management.
  • Install and administer applications via exposed JMX interface and extended command-line interface. Partners achieve more seamless integration of WebSphere software with their applications.

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.

Ordering Information

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:

  • Configure their iSeries or AS/400 machines using iSeries Navigator to enable the collection of software inventory data every 30 days or fewer.
  • Use the Electronic Service Agent™ for iSeries to send the software inventory to IBM every 30 days or fewer. This data is used by IBM to audit for compliance to the license terms and conditions.

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.
