Overview

IBM WebSphere® Transformation Extender (WebSphere TX) is a universal data transformation and validation engine for Smart SOA. It is designed to deliver business agility through IT agility by tackling one of the most significant challenges of integrating enterprise business systems. WebSphere TX delivers transformation and content validation for large volumes of complex formatted and large multipart documents using a codeless, graphical approach to development.

New business services can be delivered quicker to market, with business driven enhancements turned around in shorter cycles. WebSphere TX enables you to minimize the impact integration imposes on an application. Developers no longer need to modify application interfaces to deal with new message structures and file formats, or write and test new preprocessing and postprocessing programs to validate the syntax and semantics of the content received and sent by the application.

Business is better served where electronic documents exchanged between organizations can be validated before sending or receiving, eliminating costly errors, and remedial action to resend. Validation checking is important to many for compliance with both regulatory and industry body requirements for inter-business transactions.

The WebSphere TX family delivers editions for both batch and event driven messaging, extending an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) or Business Process Management (BPM) solution, and for embedding with custom applications written in C, COBOL, or written for Java™ or .Net. On the IBM System z™ platform, blue-chip clients deploy WebSphere TX in z/OS® Batch, CICS®, IMS™, and DB2® environments seeking high performance, and the reliability of transaction control.

Enhancements:

  • WebSphere Transformation Extender V8.2 adds WebSphere Transformation Extender for Integration Servers, an extender for ESB and BPM servers.
  • WebSphere Transformation Extender Design Studio now adopts the Eclipse standard with new type designer and map designer tools.
  • Industry packs are available for insurance and financial services message standards.
  • Connectivity is enhanced with the adoption of WebSphere Adapters. WebSphere TX is now available on Linux™ for System z, and selected 64-bit platforms in tolerance mode.

Description

Product structure

IBM WebSphere TX offerings are designed to deliver data transformation and validation wherever required in your IT infrastructure.

Base editions provide the core engine, associated infrastructure and components necessary for production data transformation environments. All implementations require one or more base editions, depending on the enterprise architecture and where WebSphere Transformation Extender will be implemented. Technology adapters for integrating with other technologies in the enterprise, such as WebSphere MQ, are included in the base products. A subset of adapters is supported on z/OS and includes WebSphere MQ, file, and FTP. The adapters not included are those with royalty bearing encryption/security protocols, and those delivered in optional Packs.

Development tooling includes packages for developing transformations and interfacing WebSphere TX with a custom programming environment. All WebSphere TX implementations require at least one order of WebSphere Transformation Extender Design Studio to develop, test, and tune transformations and metadata.

Optional WebSphere Transformation Extender components deliver significant value in the development and implementation of WebSphere TX. Industry and enterprise connectivity packs accelerate time to value by populating the Design Studio with prebuilt assets. Secure adapters, SNMP, and Launcher enhancements extend the base edition functionality. Trading Manager is an application for managing EDI transactions with Business Partners.

IBM WebSphere Transformation Extender for Application Programming is used to deploy the transformation engine in custom applications and application servers, and use the APIs provided to execute a transformation map. APIs include C, Java, EJB, .Net, and COBOL. This package is used when you want to call directly from your application into the transformation engine. This product has been renamed in V8.2 to clarify its usage. In V8.1, it was simply called WebSphere Transformation Extender. This edition is used to provide extended transformation with IBM WebSphere Application Server.

IBM WebSphere Transformation Extender with Command Server allows the transformation engine to be called directly from a command line, shell script, or timer. WebSphere Transformation Extender Command Server is a powerful command-line-driven environment to control the execution of a transformation. Use this package to extend an existing application and infrastructure with minimal intrusion. System z users of MVS™ Batch, CICS, and IMS environments on System z use this edition. For System z users, this edition includes the components in the Application Programming edition.

WebSphere Transformation Extender with Launcher includes the WebSphere Transformation Extender Launcher and the Command Server. The Launcher activates transformations based on triggers. Triggers can be a file creation, a message arriving on a messaging system (such as IBM WebSphere MQ), a DBMS trigger, a timer, and many other options as well as combinations of triggers. The Launcher offers online run-time environment that synchronizes and controls complicated data transformations, while maintaining and optimizing the execution environment for the transformations. For System z, this edition runs under the UNIX® System Services environment.

WebSphere Transformation Extender for Message Broker for z/OS V8.1 has been merged into the new edition WebSphere Transformation Extender for Integration Servers for z/OS V8.2. It continues to extend the breadth of data transformation capabilities of WebSphere Message Broker, a universal Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Service Bus from IBM. Complex Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) structures can be more easily processed without writing a hundred lines of script. The Extender provides access to industry packs to accelerate integration in EDI, financial services, healthcare, and insurance. The Extender can handle variable format structures and batched transaction documents with ease, and without scripting. You can solve critical business problems in real time with support for industry standards, regulatory compliance, and connectivity requirements. The Extender functionality remains at V8.1.

New in V8.2: IBM WebSphere Transformation Extender for Integration Servers

WebSphere Transformation Extender for Integration Servers is the latest edition to the Transformation Extender family. It offers the transformation engine packaged ready to install with IBM WebSphere Process Server or WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus. This edition takes advantage of the Service Component Architecture bindings added in V6.1 of these products. Specifically, WebSphere Transformation Extender can be used as a dedicated mediation engine. Enhancements for WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus and WebSphere Process Server V6.1 include:

  • WebSphere Transformation Extender data bindings for JMS, WebSphere MQ, HTTP, EIS import, and EIS export
  • Maps can convert between external formats and business objects
  • Eclipse-based wizard simplifies map design; runs in WebSphere Integration Developer

WebSphere Transformation Extender for Message Broker V8.1 has been merged with WebSphere Transformation Extender for Integration Servers for V8.2.

Development Tooling

WebSphere Transformation Extender Design Studio is an integrated development environment where transformations and metadata are developed, imported, tested, and performance tuned. WebSphere TX Design Studio is a required, separately orderable product. After the transformations are developed, tested, and tuned in Design Studio, the transformation is generated in a platform-specific form. It can then be installed with the transformation engine for system test and production execution.

New in V8.2: Eclipse tooling for type trees and maps. The Eclipse workbench delivers a common, standards based, user experience across the WebSphere portfolio, and is supported by many independent software vendors today. The Type Designer and Map Designer tools now support the Eclipse standard look and feel. Importer utilities become Eclipse importers, and additional importers are included to support adapter connectivity with enterprise applications. The Database Interface Designer as well as the Integrated Flow Designer and management tools used with WebSphere Transformation Extender with Launcher have not been migrated to Eclipse in this release.

Native XML support is now available with tooling support for XML Schemas. These no longer need to be imported and converted to type trees as they now appear as type trees in map designer. Existing type trees still work with the new Eclipse look and feel tools.

WebSphere Transformation Extender SDK delivers the development environment for all of the APIs such as C, Java, EJB, and COBOL to integrate custom programming environments directly to WebSphere Transformation Extender. In addition, you can develop custom adapters for WebSphere Transformation Extender using this SDK and deploy them in any base edition. SDK does not include the Design Studio. SDK is available for writing client programs that connect directly to the stand-alone transformation engine. It adds the capability of the application programming edition to the other base editions.

WebSphere Transformation Extender industry packs

WebSphere Transformation Extender industry packs provide out-of-the-box capabilities to integrate a range of industry-standard data formats with your enterprise infrastructure. Industry packs enable developers to accelerate the delivery of transformation solutions by providing predefined type tree templates, conversion maps, and in selected packs, provide validation maps and tools to remove risk from projects that require conformance to mandatory and advisory guidelines required by the regulatory body or industry service provider.

WebSphere Transformation Extender industry packs used in conjunction with WebSphere Transformation Extender, a universal data transformation engine, provide organizations with an infrastructure that can:

  • Enable compliance with government and industry mandates
  • Control administrative costs
  • Streamline business processes

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit pricing for eligible IBM 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.

5655-R95      WebSphere Transformation       Execution based
               Extender for z/OS V8.2

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

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.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The IBM System z Machines 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 Software Announcement 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 Hardware Announcement 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 System z 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 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.
