Description

IBM WebFacing Deployment Tool for WebSphere Development Studio with HATS technology V7.0 gives you the flexibility to use both the IBM WebFacing Tool V7.0 and HATS V7.0 technologies to achieve your UI modernization goals. The IBM WebFacing Tool V7.0 and the HATS Toolkit V7.0 are included in WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries™ V7.0 and WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition for iSeries V7.0.

IBM WebFacing Deployment Tool for WebSphere Development Studio with HATS technology V7.0 acts as a run-time "enablement key" for applications created with these tools.

IBM WebFacing Tool technology

IBM WebFacing Tool quickly, easily, and cost effectively generates Web interfaces to 5250 applications.

  • Generates a new, fully functional Web user interface based on Data Description Specification (DDS) source code
  • Provides comprehensive DDS keyword support
  • Allows quick and easy conversion of non-WebFaced DDS screens or system screens in WebFaced applications
  • Generates portals for host access in a portal environment (WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition for iSeries only)
  • Removes requirement for Online Transaction Processing (OLTP)

HATS technology

HATS 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 the HATS Toolkit.

  • Browser interface to host applications
  • Improvement of Navigation of host applications
  • Generation of portals for host access in a portal environment (WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition for iSeries only)
  • No requirement to access to source code
  • No requirement for OLTP starting with i5/OS™ V5R4

New in IBM WebFacing Deployment Tool for WebSphere Development Studio with HATS technology V7.0

HATS and WebFacing application run-time interoperability: Interoperability between HATS and WebFacing provides the ability to perform DDS source transformation, as well as 5250 data stream transformation, within the same Web application. This function is particularly useful for those who have built a DDS source-based transformation application using the IBM WebFacing Tool, that need to interact with a 5250 application that has been transformed using the HATS tool.

This function is also useful for HATS users who want to take advantage of transformation, based on DDS source files, provided by the IBM WebFacing Tool. With this support, a HATS application and a WebFacing application can be linked together to interoperate as a single enterprise application and use a single connection to a WebFacing server. This function is not supported in a portal environment.

Note: The use of this function requires either WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries or WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition for iSeries and a license for IBM WebFacing Deployment Tool for WebSphere Development Studio with HATS technology.

Additional enhancements in the HATS Toolkit V7.0

  • Eclipse Rich Client Platform support

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a Value Unit table. You must obtain a PoE for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processor cores require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the value unit table on the following Web site

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Sub-capacity processor (Value Unit)

For programs eligible for sub-capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) where the program runs. Refer to the "International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for sub-capacity terms" or the program's license information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms.

Authorized user

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside your enterprise. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under an authorized user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Program unique terms

IBM WebFacing Deployment Tool for WebSphere Development Studio, defined as the "program" may only be used to connect to System i™ 5250 applications. The Program is available based on three charging methods: Authorized User, Value Unit, and processor per tier. Please consult your PoE to determine which charging method applies to your license.

The Authorized User and Value Unit versions of the program consist of the following Components:

  • WebSphere HATS WebFacing Tool Runtime
  • WebSphere Application Server — Express for Multiplatforms ("Application Server — Express")

The processor per tier version of the program consists of the following Components:

  • WebSphere HATS and WebFacing Tool Runtime

Entitlement to program upgrades does not entitle you to upgrades to the individual components unless such components are upgraded as part of a program upgrade. For example, if the WebSphere Application Server — Express for Multiplatforms program product is upgraded, you will not be entitled to such upgrade unless a program upgrade includes the upgraded version of WebSphere Application Server — Express for Multiplatforms.

Program-unique terms

The program is available based on three charging methods: Authorized User, Value Unit, and processor per tier. The charging methods only apply when the program is used in a production environment. If the Authorized User charging method is selected, the number of Program licenses purchased must equal the number of authorized users accessing the program from the Internet and/or intranet.

Authorized User License Option

An Authorized User is one and only one individual, machine, program, or device with a specific identity (ID) within or outside Your enterprise.

A PoE is required for each user accessing the program, or any program component, either directly or indirectly through any means on behalf of the user. An example of "indirect" access would be through a multiplexing program, device, or application server. Connections (from either users or other applications) made to the Program through other products that act as connection concentrators must be counted as Authorized Users and are subject to use-base charges based on the number of Authorized Users of those concentrators.

Customers that would like to take advantage of the rich-client deployment option from the HATS Toolkit must purchase Authorized User licenses.

Value Unit License Option

Under the processor Value Unit licensing structure, each processor core will be assigned a specific number of Value Units. You must acquire the total number of processor Value Units for each processor core on which the software programs are deployed. IBM continues to define a processor to be each processor core on a chip. For example, a dual-core chip contains two processor cores.

Each software program has a unique price per Value Unit. To determine the total cost of deploying an individual software program, you multiply the program price per Value Unit by the total number of processor Value Units required. Refer to the processor Value Unit table on the Passport Advantage site below for a list of Value Unit requirements by processor.

With full capacity licensing, you must acquire the appropriate number of Value Units based on all activated processors on the server available to the program or a component of the program. In sub-capacity licensing, you must acquire the appropriate number of Value Units based on all activated processors in partitions (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) on the server available to the program or a component of the program.

Processor per Tier License Option

For each PoE you obtain under the Processor per Tier License Option, you are authorized to deploy and run program applications on System i machine with a single processor of the tier specified by your PoE. Alternatively, you may deploy and run Program applications on System i machine of the tier specified by your PoE with multiple processors if you acquire a Processor per Tier License Option PoE for each processor on such machine.

Component restrictions

WebSphere Application Server — Express for Multiplatforms

Authorized User License Option

The program is accompanied by WebSphere Application Server — Express. Except as modified by this Agreement, your use of the WebSphere Application Server — Express components will be governed by the license terms that accompany the WebSphere Application Server — Express components. The license to the program entitles you to install and use one WebSphere Application Server — Express on a machine with a single processor provided that you acquire fifty (50) Authorized User licenses. You may use one additional WebSphere Application Server — Express on one additional processor for each additional one hundred (100) Authorized User licenses that you acquire.

Authorized Users                   Total copies of WebSphere
                                   Application Server -- Express
 
1 -- 49                            0
50 -- 149                          1
150 -- 249                         2
250 -- 349                         3
etc                                etc

For each WebSphere Application Server — Express to which you are entitled, you are authorized to install and use each component of WebSphere Application Server — Express on a machine with a single processor. Alternatively, you may install and use each copy of WebSphere Application Server — Express on a machine with multiple processors if you either:

  1. Allocate a copy of WebSphere Application Server — Express to which you are entitled per this agreement to each additional processor on such machine; or,
  2. Acquire a Single Processor PoE of WebSphere Application Server — Express for each additional processor on such machine.

Processor License Option

You are authorized to install and use one WebSphere Application Server — Express on the same server machine per each deployment of program processor to which you are entitled under this Agreement.

In any event, the license to the program limits your use of WebSphere Application Server — Express to machines with up to two (2) processors.

You are entitled to use the WebServer Plugins to improve security by having an HTTP server run on a separate machine from WebSphere Application Server — Express. You are authorized to only have a 1:1 web server:application server link with no load balancing support.

In addition, the license to the program entitles you to use the WebSphere Application Server — Express components only to run Program applications, to run objects created by the program applications, and to enable connections with the program applications to other applications and sources of data. The license to the program does not for instance, entitle you to use the WebSphere Application Server — Express components to run applications that do not require the Program applications to operate. If you wish to use the WebSphere Application Server — Express components without these restrictions, you must purchase separate authorizations to use the WebSphere Application Server — Express components.

Benchmarking: You may disclose the results of any benchmark test of the program or its subcomponents to any third party provided that You (A) publicly disclose the complete methodology used in the benchmark test (e.g., hardware and software setup, installation procedure and configuration files), (B) perform Your benchmark testing running the Program in its Specified Operating Environment using the latest applicable updates, patches and fixes available for the Program from IBM or third parties that provide IBM products ("Third Parties"), and (C) follow any and all performance tuning and "best practices" guidance available in the program's documentation and on IBM support web sites for the program. If You publish the results of any benchmark tests for the program, then notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any agreement between you and IBM or third parties, IBM and third parties shall have the right to publish the results of benchmark tests with respect to Your products provided IBM or third parties complies with the requirements of (A), (B) and (C) above in its testing of Your products.

Agreement for acquisition of software maintenance: IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) applies for maintenance and does not require customer signatures.

Yes. Software Maintenance is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express. Product upgrades and Technical Support are provided by the Software Maintenance offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software and Technical Support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if 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, 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, 7 days a week. 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 the applicable agreements.
