Description

Planned availability date

February 14, 2006: Electronic software delivery by Rational Product Updater

WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries (WDSC) refresh pack V6.0.1

WDSC refresh pack V6.0.1 inherits and extends the robust, easy-to-use development environment of Rational Web Developer refresh pack V6.0.1.

The WDSC Lite technology preview shipped in this release allows users who are developing native i5/OS applications to install a much lighter-weight Integrated Development Environment consisting of the base Eclipse IDE with the Remote System Explorer and Debug plug-ins. This edit/compile/debug environment for i5/OS development requires 256 MB of RAM to run effectively, whereas 1 GB is recommended for the full WebSphere Development Studio Client. The installation of the WDSC Lite technology preview is an optional feature.

IBM WebFacing Tool quickly, easily, and cost effectively Web-enables 5250 applications. This release delivers "out-of-the-box" integration of WebFaced and non-WebFaced 5250 applications in a browser.

Host Access Transformation Services (HATS) Toolkit V6.0.4 includes a default transformation engine that quickly and easily generates a dynamic Web interface from a 5250 datastream. The resulting Web interface can also be customized with HATS Toolkit. The Web interface can be deployed to production with the purchase of IBM WebFacing Deployment Tool — with HATS technology. In this release, the Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) requirements for HATS applications working through the WebFacing server are eliminated starting with i5/OS V5R4.

For a more detailed comparison of the IBM WebFacing Tool and Host Access Transformation Services, visit

Remote System Explorer provides enhancements to the Eclipse IDE for developing i5/OS native applications and access to i5/OS functions. In this release, RSE includes the local syntax checker, program verifier, and help support for the RPG, COBOL, and CL language enhancements in V5R4.

Web Service development tools for creating SOA applications have been simplified. A new extension to the Web Service wizard generates a Web service from either a batch ILE RPG or COBOL program in one step.

WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition for iSeries (WDSC AE) refresh pack V6.0.1

WDSC AE refresh pack V6.0.1 inherits and extends the capabilities of Rational Application Developer refresh pack V6.0.1.

The Portal Toolkit in WDSC AE is required to generate portlets in HATS and the WebFacing Tool.

IBM WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition refresh pack V6.0.1 delivers significant advanced capabilities, including:

  • Cascading Style Sheets-Positioning (CSS-P) support in WebFacing Tool allows the fields on the Web-enabled interface to be repositioned, unconstrained by the boundaries of the original 5250 area. This provides almost unlimited customizability of the Web-enabled interface.
  • New adapters enable the collection and consolidation of messages from applications created with the WebFacing Tool and Web Tools with the i5/OS message and Job Log information for easier problem determination of composite applications.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

Some accessibility features are not available in the following optionally installed components:

  • VisualAge® RPG
  • CODE

Product positioning

WDSC refresh pack V6.0.1

Although WebSphere Development Studio (WDS) is pervasive on the last three release of the operating system, the usage of WDSC has been constrained by the workstation requirements. The technology preview in this release allows i5/OS developers to install a much lighter edit/compile/debug environment, WDSC Lite, for developing native i5/OS application. The memory requirements for WDSC Lite are less than 25% of the recommended requirements for WDSC.

New capabilities are delivered in this release for IBM's strategic Web-enabling technologies for the System i5 marketplace. The new extensions to the WebFacing Tool delivered in refresh pack V6.0.1 leverage the on-the-fly capabilities of HATS to Web-enable 5250 applications and integrate them with Web-enabled applications created with the WebFacing Tool. Both applications are delivered in a consistent browser GUI interface and don't require any OLTP capacity starting with i5/OS V5R4. This new capability is available in both WebSphere Development Studio Client and WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition. The deployment of this new solution requires the purchase of IBM WebFacing Deployment Tool — with HATS technology V6.0.1.

The HATS Toolkit V6.0.4, delivered in this release, leverages the WebFacing infrastructure to eliminate the requirement for OLTP capacity starting with i5/OS V5R4. Applications Web-enabled using HATS V6.0.4 can be deployed to the Standard Edition of i5/OS. You must purchase a new Passport Advantage® offering, IBM WebFacing Deployment Tool — with HATS technology V6.0.1, to deploy the Web interface to production.

WDSC AE refresh pack V6.0.1

There is a new reason to acquire the WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition. The refresh pack V6.0.1 allows you to monitor the execution of mixed workload applications by consolidating messages from the i5/OS job log, WebFacing, and Web Tools.

Also, the CSS-P support in WebFacing Tool allows the fields on the Web-enabled interface to be repositioned, unconstrained by the boundaries of the original 5250 area. This provides almost unlimited customizability of the Web-enabled interface.

Planning statement

In this release, the IBM WebFacing Deployment Tool with HATS technology (WDHT) is required for deployment of Web-enabled applications created using either the HATS Toolkit or the WebFacing Tool extensions for interoperability with non-WebFaced 5250 applications.

Any Web applications created using the basic functions of the WebFacing Tool do not require WDHT for deployment.

In future releases of the WebFacing Tool, all deployments will require WDHT. Web-enabled applications created or updated using any subsequent release of either HATS or the WebFacing Tool in WDSC or WDSC AE will require the corresponding release of WDHT for deployment.

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.
