Description

Image

WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Portal Enable (WEMP Enable) V5.1 is an integrated server-side infrastructure offering that enables the design and deployment of mobile solutions, including the enablement of pervasive technologies for:

  • Multiple channel access of portal content
  • Intelligent content adaptation: write once, render on multiple devices

A mobile portal represents a set of pages with menu links that appear as text, icons, or both. These links allow the user to navigate to sub-menus or content pages. Support for the mobile portal navigation model enables more usable and flexible navigation on wireless devices.

WEMP Enable V5.1, in conjunction with WebSphere Portal and WebSphere Application Server, also offers:

  • Navigation, personalized experience, and multi-device rendering
  • User registration and profile management from land-line Web sites
  • Security, access control, and single sign-on
  • Aggregation of any mix of applications into a unified display
  • Defines a Model View Controller (MVC) structure, modes, and view states
  • Services for storing data, single sign-on, and content access
  • Integration services: click-to-action, page sequencing, enterprise applications, and collaboration
  • Separates portlet development from page layout and branding
  • Supports application integration on the screen

Diversity of mobile devices continues to increase, as do their capabilities. Devices differ in their physical characteristics (screen size, keyboard), as well as in the markup languages supported by their browsers. Providing a high quality, user experience is increasingly dependent on device-aware tooling and run-time device recognition that can optimize delivery based on device-specific capabilities.

New features of WEMP Enable V5.1 include:

  • Mobile Web Clipping (portalization of external content)

    If you need the ability to quickly convert third-party content to portlet content, it is possible to write portlets that acquire and convert external content. However, each portlet must be written in Java and maintained individually. This effort can be expensive and time-consuming. Instead, WEMP Enable 5.1 provides you the ability to portalize external content feeds.

    If the Mobile Web Clipping feature is used, additional requirements apply, including the download of the Web Clipping Portlet from the WebSphere Portal Enable V5.1 Portlet Catalog. Refer to the Software requirements section for more details.

  • Enhanced Mobile Portal Toolkit development environment
    • New sample portlets, developed for and shipped with WEMP Enable 5.1, have been added to the RAD Samples Gallery.
    • A Portlet Create wizard option has been added to the create, configure, and edit mode JSPs for XDIME markup.
    • An XDIME-specific version of the Struts tag library is added. The tag library is based on the WebSphere Portal HTML Struts tag library, but has unique code for tags that generate markup (link and form-related tags), and supports both JSR 168 and IBM portlets.

  • Remote Policy Server support

    Remote Policy Server support provides the ability to retrieve theme, component, and layout policies from a remote server rather than from the local policy database.

  • Virtual Portal support

    In a Virtual Portal (VP) configuration, one WebSphere Portal installation exposes multiple logical portals with individual user repositories, anonymous pages, and other unique characteristics.

  • Image Conversion Server (ICS) enhancements

    Installation enhancements allow ICS to be installed on an application server other than the one on which WebSphere Portal is running. The ability to transcode images, such as JPEG, Wireless BitMap (WBMP), and so on, into an image format that is appropriate for the target device is also included.

  • Message Preparation Server (MPS) support

    MPS, a set of APIs, is included in WEMP Enable V5.1 as a technical preview rather than a generally supported feature. This technical preview will be supported on a best-effort basis.

    The MPS APIs are used to generate and deliver Push messages formatted to the receiving device(s). MPS can prepare messages for delivery via Short Message Service (SMS), Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) Push, Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), and HTML-based e-mail. It takes XDIME as an input and generates content for delivery that is formatted for the receiving device. MPS also provides adapters for the following delivery channels:

    • Java Mail SMTP for access to a SMTP (e-mail) server
    • Logica SMPP for access to a compatible SMS Center (SMSC)
    • Nokia MMSC for access to a compatible MMS Center (MMSC)
    • Now SMS/MMS Gateway for WAP Push message delivery

    MPS can either be used with WebSphere Portal or it can be installed with a custom messaging application on WebSphere Application Server (WAS).

  • JSR 168 portlet support

    The JSR 168 Portlet Specification is supported for portlets containing HTML and XDIME markup.

  • Struts portlet support

    WEMP Enable 5.1 has extended the WebSphere Portal Struts Portlet Framework to support Struts portlets that create XDIME markup. Both JSR 168 and IBM legacy portlets are supported.

WEMP Enable V5.1 continues to provide the features that were available in V5.0:

  • Enablement
    • Capabilities that provide easy, cost-effective ways for content and application providers to deliver revenue-producing content and services while minimizing the complexity of integration
    • XML-based device-independent markup language (write once, render many) called XDIME
    • Access to a database containing mobile device characteristics
    • Tooling support for application development — markup/layout editors, samples, APIs, and documentation
    • Templates for rapid site development and enforcement of style guidelines
    • Includes XSLTs to translate existing markup to new and future XHTML devices
  • XDIME aggregator

    The role of an aggregator in WebSphere Portal for Multiplatforms is to collect information about a user request, select related pages or portlets, and aggregate the output for display. The XDIME aggregator extends the existing aggregation support in WebSphere Portal for Multiplatforms to XDIME.

  • Manage Mobile Pages

    The Manage Mobile Pages portlet allows portal administrators and marketing personnel to define how users will navigate the portal. The mobile pages navigation tree is stored in the navigation model of WebSphere Portal for Multiplatforms and consists of nodes that represent pages, Web sites, labels, or portlets. At run-time, the XDIME aggregator displays and allows users to navigate the tree created by Manage Mobile Pages. Manage Mobile Pages also supports the configuration of meta-data for each navigation node and portlet on a page. Some meta-data will be standard (device characteristics, icons) and understood by the XDIME aggregator. Configuration of custom meta-data is also supported, but a custom aggregator or other functionality is required to use this data.

  • Preload Notice

    Preload Notices are typically informational pages that are optionally displayed after a link is selected and before it is displayed on a mobile device. They may be used to insert special promotional advertisements, notify users of billable charges associated with a selection, or provide a warning regarding the content to be displayed.

  • XDIME portlets

    A set of XDIME portlets is provided to demonstrate out-of-box capability and to use as samples for development purposes. These include Mobile Favorites, Mobile Welcome, Reminders (view only), and World Clock (local time only).

  • Multi-channel Server (MCS)

    MCS is the run-time component that transforms XDIME input by matching it with policies in the device repository to generate device-specific output for mobile devices. The run-time supports generation of multiple markup languages, including XHTML Basic, XHTML Mobile Profile, WML, and HTML.

  • Repository of mobile device policies

    Policies define visual presentation elements (for example, page layouts and style sheets) and device attribute information. The repository is queried by the run-time to generate device-specific markup, and is also consulted by the Manage Mobile Pages, XDIME aggregator, and tooling.

  • Mobile Portal Toolkit V5.1 for IBM Rational Application Developer (RAD)

    The Mobile Portal Toolkit for RAD is included as part of WEMP Enable V5.1. This toolkit provides the necessary tools to develop portlet applications for mobile devices. It is based on proven technologies and uses open standards to help increase application usage. The following components of the Mobile Portal Toolkit are targeted for WEMP Enable V5.1:

    • Java Portlet Wizard includes markup support for the following mobile markups:
      • HTML
      • WML
      • CHTML
      • XDIME

    • RAD-based policy editors are included to create policies that are referenced in the XDIME markup and used by MCS to make the best decision for emitting device-dependent markup to a target device.

    • Sample XDIME portlet applications.

    • Toolkit Unit Test Environment (UTE) extensions to support the MCS run-time and XDIME Aggregator with the WebSphere Portal V5.1 test environment.

    Note: Mobile Portal Toolkit V5.1 for RAD requires IBM Rational Application Developer V6.0 as a prerequisite. Prerequisites must be purchased separately.

  • Globalization

    In addition to English, WEMP Enable V5.1 is provided in nine languages: Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, and Traditional Chinese. All of these languages are on the same program media, which is available worldwide. Language selection is made during installation, usage, and configuration of the program. Technical assistance and support is provided in the language generally spoken in the country or region where the product is being used.

WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable V5.1

WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable is an optional, fee-based device information service that may be purchased by WEMP Enable customers. This option entitles WEMP Enable customers to download updated information from IBM about new or updated devices that may become available. The availability of the information from IBM is dependent on when the updated information becomes available from the device manufacturers. If you choose to purchase the WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable option, it must on a one-to-one basis with your WEMP Enable licenses. That is, the quantity of licenses for WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable must be equal to the quantity of your WEMP Enable processor licenses.

WEMP Enable licensing and charge structure is per processor with full capacity. The optional WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable update service is also based on per processor. The actual price each customer pays for each license depends on that customer's Passport Advantage Agreement terms and discount level.

WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable is optional, but if it is purchased, it must be purchased on a one-for-one basis with the WEMP Enable licenses. That is, if any WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable licenses are purchased, the quantity of those licenses should be equal to the quantity of the customer's WEMP Enable licenses. For example, if a customer who purchases three processor licenses for WEMP Enable also wants to purchase the optional WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable update service, they must purchase the WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable license in a quantity of three.

The charge structure for the prerequisite product, WebSphere Portal for Multiplatforms, is also based on per processor. A separate WebSphere Portal for Multiplatforms (either Enable or Extend) license is required for each processor on which WEMP Enable will be used. For example, if the customer purchases three WEMP Enable licenses, they will also need to acquire three licenses for WebSphere Portal for Multiplatforms.

Charge metrics definitions

"Per processor" charging under Full Capacity

In Full Capacity charging — where charges are based on a capacity based metric, such as a processor, Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) must be acquired for all capacity that is active on the server where the program or a component of the Program is run.

As an example, a customer has ordered a server with four processors. The server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are "inactive". Thus, four processors are active for the customer.

Notes:

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In the zSeries' Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor".
  4. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  5. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the program is run.

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Warranty: This program has warranty for a minimum of one year from acquisition from IBM or authorized IBM Business Partner. The warranty provided to the customer, for at least one year from acquisition, is access to databases (read Web sites) for program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or obtain otherwise and install at leisure.

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. Customers will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund.

  • For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Volume orders (IVO): No

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage Web site at

Usage restriction: Yes

IBM WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Portal Enable (the "Program" or "WEMP Enable") consists of several individual components. A separate license is required for each processor (full capacity) that utilizes the program. The program and its components may include program unique terms, conditions, or restrictions, in addition to the terms and conditions of the IPLA and IBM Passport Advantage.

Unique terms and conditions are included in the License Information (LI) that is provided with WEMP Enable. On or near the same date as the planned availability of the Program, the basic IBM licensing agreement and the LI for the Program will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement site

Licensing considerations:

  • WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable is a separately priced optional service and is for use only with WEMP Enable. If the WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Device Enable option is purchased, it must be in a quantity equal to the number of WEMP Enable licenses.
  • WebSphere Portal for Multiplatforms V5.1 is a prerequisite for WEMP Enable V5.1 on a one-for-one basis. Customers must acquire a separate WebSphere Portal for Multiplatforms (Enable or Extend) license for each processor on which WEMP Enable V5.1 is utilized.
  • If the Image Conversion Server (ICS) component of WEMP Enable V5.1 is used, it is recommended that ICS be installed on a separate machine. The ICS run-time requires a separate WAS license for the machine on which ICS is installed.
  • MPS is included with WEMP Enable V5.1 as a technical preview. Technical previews are supported on a best-effort basis. If MPS is installed on a separate machine, a separate WAS license should be acquired when used in this configuration.

Software maintenance applies: Yes

Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is included in the Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service enhances customer productivity, with voice and electronic access into IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option that is available.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions; and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

iSeries™ Software Maintenance applies: No

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
