Description

SCLM Developer Toolkit V3.1

Supports multiple projects: With the SCLM View in SCLM Developer Toolkit V3.1, you can display and work with multiple projects that can reside on different z/OS systems in the SCLM view.

Populates the SCLM view with an identical filter: When you run the populate action multiple times with all options exactly the same, the SCLM view refreshes the existing view instead of adding a duplicate branch to the tree.

Manages the size of the operations log: You can now specify the maximum size of the operations log folder or the maximum length of time to retain operations logs.

Supports SQLJ projects: SCLM Developer Toolkit now supports the SQLJ language type to allow SQLJ projects to be stored and built in SCLM.

Includes VSAM Record Level Sharing (RLS) support for shortname/longname table: System administrators can set the ZVSAMRLS ISPF variable to enable record level sharing when the shortname/longnamefile is shared across multiple systems.

Stores separate job cards per group: SCLM Developer Toolkit stores separate job cards for each group that is used as a build target, promote source, or deployment source.

Includes J2EE build performance enhancements:: The J2EE build process will provide faster build performance especially noticeable on project builds of greater than 1000 files.

Includes logging and message enhancements: Logging and messaging for batch build processing are improved to give clearer error message reporting, making it easier to debug build errors.

Includes usability enhancements

  • Batch output is now displayed in an editor allowing you to use editor commands to easily locate data within the batch job.
  • Operations logs are now color coded to help you find relevant information, automatically scroll to the first highlighted message, and double clicking in the tree node opens the log in the default editor.
  • Several new options are added to the SCLM Developer Toolkit Preferences page to help you customize your user preferences.

Includes LPEX emulation of ISPF commands: The SCLM Developer Toolkit LPX editor enables you to use the key primary Interactive System Productivity Facility (ISPF) commands in addition to those provided by the LPEX editor.

  • SCLM Developer Toolkit V3.1
  • Enhanced Access Control for SCLM for z/OS V1.1
  • Breeze for SCLM for z/OS V1.1
  • Merge Tool for z/OS V1.1

SCLM Advanced Edition for z/OS V1.2 is refreshed to include the newest version of SCLM Developer Toolkit V3.1. When used in conjunction with SCLM for z/OS, it delivers the following:

  • Merge application development and management processes with the traditional S/390® applications life cycle
  • Store, modify, build, and deploy Java code from SCLM utilizing UNIX® System Services
  • Migrate directly from an existing SCLM location, partitioned data set (PDS), PC, or UNIX file to SCLM
  • Streamline in-house approval procedures and achieve organization wide accountability for source changes in production
  • Define software release packages which can be managed and reused throughout the application development life cycle
  • Collect and store approver data automatically and notify approvers when there are packages to be approved
  • Facilitate the approval and promotion process by ensuring that all approvals are obtained before promotions or production turnover
  • Approve or veto SCLM packages from the Web
  • View an Approver "ballot box" online to see all votes cast
  • Utilize a low-cost, full-function SCM solution

SCLM Administrator Toolkit V3.1: SCLM Administrator Toolkit V3.1 delivers a set of tools designed to make defining and maintaining SCLM projects simpler and easier. The administrator functions are accessible from either an Eclipse-based graphical interface or traditional host-based ISPF panels. These administrator functions help guide you through functions such as creating and configuring new projects, as well as modifying, cloning, building and rebuilding (allowing the original source structure of objects to be maintained), and deleting existing SCLM-managed projects. For more information on this product, refer to 206-321 , dated December 5, 2006.

Enhanced Access Control for SCLM for z/OS V1.1: Enhanced Access Control for SCLM on z/OS improves the granularity and protection for SCLM-managed resources. Enhanced Access Control augments the services of RACF® by allowing you to grant access to SCLM-managed resources only to SCLM or other defined programs. Users' access can be restricted based on SCLM function or service. For more information on this product, refer to 202-285 , dated October 15, 2002.

Breeze for SCLM for z/OS V1.1: Breeze for SCLM for z/OS enhances the package processing capabilities of SCLM. Breeze allows you to build reusable packages, assign approvers, and automatically notify both approvers and managers via either Time Sharing Option (TSO) or e-mail when there are changes in need of review. A Web interface allows approvers to review the package and package contents and then approve or veto the SCLM packages via a browser, without logging onto TSO.

By enhancing proven SCLM technology, Breeze delivers a solution for both developers and managers who are looking to leverage SCLM strengths as a powerful development and source code management tool. For more information on this product, refer to 200-405 , dated November 14, 2000.

Merge Tool for z/OS V1.1: Merge Tool for z/OS and OS/390® delivers an easy-to-use, ISPF-base, three-way merge facility that provides both project managers and IBM S/390 application developers with the tools they need to identify, analyze, and consolidate (merge) independently coded changes.

Merge Tool can help them to efficiently use and manage this process to merge up to three versions of source code. For more information on this product, refer to 202-114 , dated June 18, 2002.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of its general availability, when used in accordance with IBM documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit pricing for eligible IBM eServer® System z™ IBM International Program License Agreement (IPLA) programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each System z IPLA product with Value Unit pricing, has a single price per Value Unit and a conversion matrix, called Value Unit Exhibit, for converting from some designated measurement to Value Units. Most commonly, Millions of Service Units (MSUs) is the measurement designated by IBM to be converted to Value Units. Some other measurements are engines or messages. Since MSUs are the most common measurement, that measurement will be used for the remainder of this description.

Value Unit pricing offers price benefits for you. For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Each of the various Value Unit Exhibits stipulate that the larger your required license capacity, the fewer Value Units per MSU you will need. Value Unit Exhibits are uniquely identified by a three digit code and referred to using the nomenclature VUExxx, where xxx is the three digit code.

Subsequent acquisitions of Value Unit priced programs offer additional price benefits. The quantity of each System z IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as entitled license capacity. If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a System z IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, you should:

  • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
  • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
  • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost

To simplify conversion from the designated measurement to Value Units or vice-versa, use the Value Unit Converter Tool. For additional information or to obtain a copy of the Value Unit Converter Tool, visit the Value Unit Converter Tool Web site

Note that Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Units of another product.

To determine the required license capacity for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Terms and conditions section.

Ordering example

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

         Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
            MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU  = Value Units
Base          3     *      1.00         =      3.00
Tier A       42     *       .45         =     18.90
Tier B      130     *       .36         =     46.80
Tier C      140     *       .27         =     37.80
Tier D    1,185     *       .20         =    237.00
 
Total     1,500                              343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone during normal business hours and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the Subscription and Support program number (PID) referenced above and the appropriate license or charge option.

IBM is also providing Subscription and Support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Support (IAAS). This offering:

  • Includes and extends the support services provided in the base support to include technical support via telephone during normal business hours.
  • Entitles customers to future releases and versions at no additional charge. Note that the customer is not entitled to new products.

When Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will renew automatically annually unless cancelled by the customer.

Single version charging: identify to IBM the prior program and replacement program, and the machine the programs are operating on.

Customized Offerings

Product deliverables are shipped only via Customized Offerings (for example, CBPDO, ServerPac, SystemPac®).

CBPDO and ServerPac are offered for Internet delivery, where ShopzSeries product ordering is available. Internet delivery of ServerPac may help improve automation and software delivery time. For more details on Internet delivery, refer to the ShopzSeries help information at

Media type for this software product is chosen during the Customized Offerings ordering process. Based on your customer environment, it is recommended that the highest possible density tape media is selected. Currently offered media types are:

  • CBPDOs — 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 35921
  • ServerPacs — 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 35921
  • SystemPacs — 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 35921
*
3592 is highest density media. Selecting 3592 will ship the fewest number of media.

Once a product becomes generally available, it will be included in the next ServerPac and SystemPac monthly update.

Production of software product orders will begin on the planned general availability date.

  • CBPDO shipments will begin one week after general availability.
  • ServerPac shipments will begin two weeks after inclusion in ServerPac.
  • SystemPac shipments will begin four weeks after inclusion in SystemPac due to additional customization, and data input verification.

Terms and conditions

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IPLA, IBM International Passport Advantage® Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing: IPLA including the license information (LI) document and proof of entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

Agreement for acquisition of Software Maintenance: The following agreement applies for maintenance and does not require customer signatures:

  • IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011)

These programs are licensed under the IPLA and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. 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, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

S/390 and System z IBM Operational Support Services — SoftwareXcel is an option if you desire added services.

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Limited warranty: IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Guide for further information at

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program support: Enhanced support, called Subscription and Support, includes telephone assistance, as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect. You will be notified of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer: You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

Volume orders (IVO): No

Sub-capacity terms and conditions

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

  • The System z IPLA program you select
  • The applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • The applicable terms
  • Whether your current mainframes are full capacity or sub-capacity

For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Ordering information section.

Program
number     Program name        Terms
 
5655-S72   SCLM Developer      Execution-based
            Toolkit V3
 
5697-N46   SCLM Advanced       Execution-based
            Edition V1

Full-capacity mainframes: In cases where full capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution based, z/OS based, full machine based: The required capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, visit

Reference based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the parent program.

Sub-capacity mainframes: In cases where sub-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution based: The required capacity of a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPARs where the System z IPLA program executes.

z/OS based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS (and z/OS.e) on the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

Reference based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the parent program.

Full-machine-based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with full-machine-based terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The System/370™, System/390®, and System z Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901), or visit the Mainframes section of the System z Exhibits Web site

For more information on sub-capacity System z IPLA terms and conditions, refer to 204-184 , dated August 10, 2004.

For additional information for products with reference-based terms, System z IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in the environment the System z IPLA program executes.

An environment is defined as either a single or stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex®. You may have one or more different environments across the enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each System z IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

When a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment, the required license capacity of the System z IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one:

  • That meets the criteria defined in 198-001 , dated January 13, 1998.
  • Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the Sysplex

Sub-capacity eligibility: To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select System z IPLA programs, you must first implement and comply with all terms of either sub-capacity Workload License Charges (WLC) or sub-capacity Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC). To implement sub-capacity WLC or EWLC, a machine must be System z (or equivalent). On that machine:

  • All instances of the OS/390 operating system must be migrated to the z/OS (or z/OS.e) operating systems
  • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued
  • All instances of the z/OS operating (or z/OS.e) systems must be running in z/Architecture™ (64-bit) mode

For that machine, you must create and submit a Sub-Capacity Report to IBM each month. Sub-Capacity Reports must be generated using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT). For additional information or to obtain a copy of SCRT, visit the System z Software Pricing Web site

You must comply with all of the terms of the WLC or EWLC offering, whichever is applicable:

  • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement — Attachment for System z Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).
  • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement — Attachment for IBM eServer System z 890 and 800 License Charges (Z125-6587).

Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract — Amendment for IBM System z9™ and eServer zSeries Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929). Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous System z IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

Sub-capacity utilization determination

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the product's own execution as reported to IBM in accordance with the requirements for reporting sub-capacity utilization for products.

On/Off Capacity on Demand (CoD)

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, you must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract, Attachment for Customer Initiated Upgrade and IBM eServer On/Off Capacity on Demand — Software (Z125-6611) must be signed prior to use.
