Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Mashup Centre is an easy-to-use business mashup platform, supporting line-of-business assembly of dynamic situational applications with the management, security, and governance capabilities IT requires. IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 continues to build upon the ease-of-use and productivity features inherent in Mashup Centre, while extending the range of deployment options available to customers. The most notable features in IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 are:

New embedding capability supports displaying widgets and mashups into any Web page

IBM Mashup Centre now provides a facility for easily embedding mashup pages and widgets into any external HTML Web page. With a few clicks, end users can generate a bit of HTML markup for a widget or a page. This markup can then be copied and pasted into a browser-based page such as a WebSphere® Portal page, Web content page, blog, wiki, or even a portlet. The net result is seamless syndication of mashups and pages with minimal effort.

New business-ready widgets help speed mashup creation

IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 includes several new and enhanced widgets, including widgets that help visualize information in different ways, such as a timeline viewer, a map widget based upon the Open Street Map technology, a slideshow widget, and an enhanced Charting widget that supports a wider range of information feeds. Additional widgets help to create dynamic URLs, generate input forms, and support dynamic refreshing of widgets at predetermined time intervals.

Enhanced core capabilities: feed generation, catalogue, and assembly

Mashup Centre V1.1 continues to enhance the functionality of each of its major functions. Now, feed generation is extended to support complex Web services, XML data types for relational feeds, and registration of parameterized feeds. The Mashup Centre catalogue is also improved, delivering the ability to select from any widget when adding a feed to Lotus® Mashups, as well as the ability to deploy pages to WebSphere Portal. Finally, new features within the browser-based assembly tool have been added, making it even easier for business users to wire widgets together into meaningful mashups.

Additional platforms enable a wider range of deployment options

IBM Mashup Centre now supports new platforms, providing organizations with a wider range of deployment options. On the server side, IBM Mashup Centre adds Linux® as a supported operated system. On the client side, Firefox 3.0 and Internet Explorer 6.0 have been added as supported browsers. Finally, the Mashup Centre catalogue offers expanded options for metadata storage, including Oracle and Microsoft® SQL Server databases.

New administration and configuration options for IT

IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 delivers new administration capabilities that ease the management of feeds and widgets, including support for migration of feed entries. In addition, IBM Mashup Centre now supports clustering, enabling administrators to improve scalability.

Description

New embedding capability supports displaying widgets and mashups in any Web page

IBM Mashup Centre now provides a facility for easily embedding mashup pages and widgets into any external HTML Web page. With a few clicks, end users can generate a bit of HTML markup for a widget or a page. This markup can then be copied and pasted into a browser-based page, such as a WebSphere Portal page, Web content page, blog, wiki, or even a portlet. The net result is seamless syndication of mashups and pages with minimal effort.

New business-ready widgets help speed mashup creation

IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 includes several new and enhanced widgets:

  • Timeline: The Timeline widget visualizes time-based events in chronological order. The widget shows the events in two main band intervals, which can easily be configured to show events in time intervals from seconds to centuries.
  • Slideshow: The Slideshow widget automatically cycles through a series of images. New images can be easily added and removed. Additional widget settings can be configured, including automatic repeat, slideshow delay, and whether or not to automatically play the slideshow.
  • URL Customizer: The URL Customizer widget creates dynamic URLs, where the URL parameters can be driven from an event specified in the widget configuration screen.
  • User Input: The User Input widget can be used to quickly create one or more input fields, including drop-downs, radio buttons, text inputs, text areas, check boxes, and date pickers.
  • Action Timer: The Action Timer widget is used to fire events based upon a specified time interval. These events can be used to dynamically refresh one or more widgets on a page.
  • Charting: The Charting widget replaces the existing Version 1.0 pie, bar, and line chart widgets, combining them into one powerful new widget that supports both comma separated value data and XML data.
  • Data Editor: The Data Editor's user interface has been significantly streamlined, resulting in fewer clicks to transform payload types.
  • Open Street Map: The Open Street Map widget visualizes one or more locations on a map based upon longitude and latitude coordinates, postal code, city, airport code, place name, or street address. This widget supports a wide range of configuration options, including the ability to display data from one or more feeds, specify custom icons used, and tailor the information that appears in the popup bubble.

Clustering delivers enhanced scalability

IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 delivers improved scalability by delivering support for clustering. With this new capability, Mashup Centre not only supports independent scaling of widgets, but it also supports the ability to deploy the different functional components (feed generation, data mashups, and widget assembly) into different clusters. Advanced feed generation capabilities support complex feeds and Web services. IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 adds several advanced capabilities to its existing feed generation functionality, including:

  • XML data type support for relational feed sources: Feeds built with relational (SQL) sources such as DB2 now support the XML datatype. With this new feature, users can navigate into and use inner nodes of the XML data with DB2® pureXML™ columns, as well as transform and merge the XML data when creating a data mashup.
  • Complex Web services:IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 expands the spectrum of Web services available to mashup by supporting more complex Web services, such as those commonly generated by products like IBM Master Data Management. More specifically, Mashup Centre now supports Web services with recursive definitions, nested structures, and explicitly defined types.
  • Registering parameterized feeds:IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 extends its feed registration capability to now include parameterized feeds. As a result, all external feeds can now take advantage of the rich caching, security, and cataloging capabilities of Mashup Centre.

Additional platforms enable a wider range of deployment options

IBM Mashup Centre now supports new platforms, providing organizations with a wider range of deployment options. On the server side, IBM Mashup Centre adds Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 as a supported operated system. On the client side, Firefox 3.0 and Internet Explorer 6.0 have been added as supported browsers. And, finally, the Mashup Centre catalogue offers expanded options for metadata storage, including Oracle and SQL Server databases.

New catalogue capabilities provide more flexibility when sharing pages and visualizing feeds

IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 adds new capabilities to the catalogue, supporting:

  • More feed visualization options: When adding a feed to Lotus Mashups, users now have the ability to select any widget from the toolbox to use for visualizing the feed. For example, right from the catalogue interface, a user could add a new "Customer Map" widget to their toolbox by simply finding the customer locations feed in the catalogue and then selecting a map widget when adding it to Lotus Mashups. In addition, users now have the ability to select a custom icon for their new widget and to also preview the results before adding the widget to their toolbox.
  • Portal integration: In Mashup Centre V1.1, users now have an option to deploy mashup pages to WebSphere Portal. Similar to deploying pages to Lotus Mashups, this feature allows users to specify the location of the portal server and the required credentials. This capability will work with post 6.1 versions of WebSphere Portal.

New administration capabilities ease management of feeds and widgets

IBM Mashup Centre V1.1 adds new capabilities that ease the administration of feeds and widgets:

  • Migration of feeds entries:IBM Mashup Centre now provides the flexibility for feeds and feed mashups to be exported and then imported into a catalogue on a different server. As a result, administrators can easily migrate feeds across servers, such as from a development environment to a production server.
  • Richer widget deployment capabilities: Administrators now have more options when deploying widgets to Lotus Mashups from the catalogue. If the widget is already deployed, administrators can choose to replace the existing widget or to also deploy the new widget. In addition, Mashup Centre V1.1 adds the ability for users to specify their credentials and target mashup server during the widget deployment process.

Improved widget infrastructure simplifies the wiring process

New wiring capabilities make it easier for users to connect widgets together:

  • New widget data model: For widgets to properly communicate (for example, to send and receive data), they need to be able to understand the type of data received from other widgets on the page. To ease this communication process, IBM Mashup Centre now defines a common data model for widgets. Out-of-the-box, many simple data types are defined (for example, string, URL, date, e-mail , person) as well as complex types (for example, table, atom, JSON). Of course, widget developers can also create and register their own customized data types. With a well-defined set of data types, it is now easier for widget developers to build "mashable" widgets that can communicate by speaking a common language.
  • More friendly widget event names: The IBM widget specification has been enhanced to include a display name for events. As a result, the event names that appear in the wiring interface can now be much more user-friendly, making it easier for business users to connect widgets together.
  • Setting widget titles: When adding widgets to a page, users can now set the widget title. As a result, if a page has three Google Gadgets on it, each of these gadgets can be given a unique name. New names will show up in the wiring interface, making it easier for users to select the proper widget to send or receive data.

Faster performance and new functions help to speed the creation of feed mashups

In IBM Mashup Centre V1.1, the Feed Mashup Builder includes several new and enhanced capabilities, such as:

  • New DateTime support, which includes formats used by 40 countries for input and output
  • New numeric functions, including square root, power, floor, and ceiling
  • New string functions, including translate and replace
  • Performance improvements, including faster preview performance and reduced memory usage for many operators

Accessibility by people with disabilities

A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) can be requested via the IBM Web site

http://www.ibm.com/able/product_accessibility/index.html

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement (PoE). It is your responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor families (vendors and brands). A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on the level or tier of all processor cores activated and available for use by the program on the server. Some programs allow licensing to less than the full capacity of the server's activated processor cores, sometimes referred to as sub-capacity licensing. For programs which offer sub-capacity licensing, if a server is partitioned utilizing eligible partitioning technologies, then a PoE must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition where the program runs or is managed by the program. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for Sub-Capacity Terms or the program's License Information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms. The PVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another program.

For general overview of PVUs for processor families (vendors and brands), go to

Limited warranty applies

Yes

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 Handbook for further information at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

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

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five 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. You 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, 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 programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
Authorization for use on home/portable computer

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used 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 Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
