Overview

IBM DB2® Server for VSE and VM V7.4 is the basis for a robust on demand business environment because of its reliability, scalability, manageability, and interoperability with on demand platform applications such as WebSphere®.

Now with the new design of the Data Propagator (DPROPR) Capture feature — Data Propagator Q Capture — VSE and VM customers can have a powerful relational database solution that enables business intelligence solutions for the enterprise.

Data Propagator Q Capture supports the DB2 Universal Database® (UDB) V8.2 architecture of Q-Replication and supports the use of WebSphere MQ to deliver transactions to be replicated by Q Apply instead of using change data tables.

With Data Propagator Q Capture, the complete replication solution for VSE and VM customers consists of:

  • Data Propagator Q Capture for VSE and VM
  • DB2 UDB V8.2 Replication Center, running on a non-VSE/VM platform for administration of replication
  • DB2 UDB V8.2 Q Apply, which will run on a non-VSE/VM platform

Q Apply will not be implemented on VSE/VM.

DB2 Server for VSE and VM is a relational database management system that is part of a family of products available on all major industry platforms.

DB2 Server for VSE and VM V7.4 fully exploits the optional DB2 features:

  • Data Restore and Control Center at the V7.3 level
  • RXSQL at the V7.1 level
  • QMF™ at the V7.2 level

Key prerequisites
  • VSE/ESA™ (5690-VSE) V2.6, or later
  • z/VM® (5654-A17) V3.1
  • z/VM (5739-A03) V4.3, or later (standard engines only)

Technical information

Hardware requirements

DB2 Server for VSE and VM V7.4 will run on any IBM processor, with the conditional swapping and extended precision floating-point features supported by one of the following operating systems:

  • VSE/ESA™ V2.6, or later
  • z/VM® V3.1
  • z/VM V4.3, or later (standard engines only)

DB2 Server for VSE and VM V7.4 will support all DASD devices supported by the operating systems through VSAM data management facilities (in VSE/ESA) or by VM DASD Block I/O Facilities (in VM/ESA® and z/VM). DB2 Server for VM takes advantage of DFSMS/VM® in the VM environment. The DB2 Data Spaces Support option will support all current DASD devices supported by the VM Paging Subsystem.

DB2 Server for VSE and VM V7.4 will support, through VSE/ESA, VM/ESA, or z/VM, tape-handling devices supported by those operating systems.

ISQL will support 3270-compatible terminals.

The DBS Utility supports a terminal interface through ICCF and CMS.

In a VM environment, results from ISQL — the interactive facility for DB2 Server for VM — may be printed on any system printer supported by VM, or any remote printer through RSCS Networking supported by the operating system.

In a VSE environment, ISQL results may be printed on any system-supported printer using VSE/POWER™ supported by the VSE/ESA operating systems. Any IBM 3270 Information Display System terminal printer supported by the Basic Mapping Support facility of CICS/VSE® or Transaction Server can print the ISQL results.

Software requirements

DB2 Server for VSE and VM V7.4 fully exploits and functions with the optional DB2 features at the V7.3 level (Data Restore and Control Center), RXSQL at the V7.1 level, and QMF™ at the V7.2 level.

In the VM environment, the DB2 Server for VM program product works with the following IBM licensed programs:

  • z/VM (5654-A17) V3.1.
  • z/VM (5739-A03) V4.3, or later. DB2 Server for VM is licensed for a standard engine environment only and is not supported in a z/VM V4 environment running on Integrated Facility for Linux™ engines.
  • DRDA®-DUOW support requires APPC/VM VTAM® Support (AVS) and Coordinated Resource Recovery (CRR), which are part of z/VM V4.3, or later.

In the VSE/ESA environment, the DB2 Server for VSE program product and its features work with the following IBM licensed programs:

  • Virtual Storage Extended/Enterprise Systems Architecture (5690-VSE) V2.6, or later
  • VSE/VSAM, part of VSE Central Functions V6.6, or later, which is one of the base programs shipped with VSE/ESA V2.6, or later

Optional:

VSE/ESA consists of a number of base programs. DB2 Server for VSE may optionally use the following base programs shipped with VSE/ESA V2.6, or later:

  • MQSeries® for VSE V2.1.2 plus UQ88412 is required to support Data Propagator Q Capture for VSE V7.4.
  • MQSeries Client for VM/ESA is required to support Data Propagator Q Capture for VM V7.4.
  • CICS/VSE (V2.3, or later) or CICS® Transaction Server (V1.1.1, or later) is required to support:

The DB2 Server for VSE and VM licensed program will work with these products, and subsequent releases and modification levels, unless otherwise stated.

Any level of COBOL, PL/I, C, or Assembler current with the operating system can be used.

The level of FORTRAN required is one supported by the VS FORTRAN compiler with the LANGLVL (77) option specified or defaulted.

Compatibility: DB2 Server for VSE and VM V7.4 is upwardly compatible with DB2 Server for VSE and VM V7.3.

DB2 Server for VSE and VM V7.4 is compatible with DB2 UDB V8.1 ODBC/JDBC/OLE DB application clients. If connecting to a pre-V7.3 DB2 Server for VSE and VM database, a pre-V8.1 DB2 UDB client is required.

Data Propagator Q Capture for VM/VSE is compatible with DB2 UDB V8.2 Q-Replication architecture. If a pre-V7.4 DPROPR Capture for VM/VSE is used, a pre-V8.1 DB2 UDB Replication is required.

Limitations: The Data Propagator Q Capture feature, which is included with DB2 Server for VSE and VM, is not compatible with the replication architecture of DB2 UDB V8.1. It is compatible with the Q-Replication architecture of DB2 UDB V8.2.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities: DB2 Server for VSE V7.4 uses an access/usage protection method that requires a key to enable the software function.

Customization options: Select the appropriate feature numbers to customize your order to specify the delivery options desired. These features can be specified on the initial or MES orders.

Example: If publications are not desired for the initial order, specify feature number 3470 to ship media only. For future updates, specify feature number 3480 to ship media updates only. If, in the future, publication updates are required, order an MES to remove feature number 3480; then, the publications will ship with the next release of the program.
