Product Positioning

The primary customers of LANDP products want to implement branch office delivery systems in a client/server environment consisting of workgroup LANs interconnected to host systems.

LANDP runs on Windows, OS/2, Linux, and DOS, having evolved from IBM Financial Branch System Services (FBSS) products, providing excellent support for branch office environments in banking, finance, and other industries. These environments typically require support for industry-oriented devices, peer-to-peer connectivity within the branch office, and interoperability with enterprise systems based on CICS, IMS, DB2, MQSeries, and non-IBM software running on a variety of platforms.

LANDP provides client access to members of IBM's family of transaction processing products, including CICS and IMS. These products are positioned as Transaction Monitors within the Application Services layer of IBM's Open Blueprint®. They provide an integrated environment for customer applications. Continued support is provided for the LANDP Common API, which is a widely used de facto standard API for branch office delivery systems. LANDP continues to be extended to exploit the IBM software strategy for e-business.

Since LANDP was initially designed for the finance industry, it includes servers that support specific financial devices and communication with the IBM 4700 Branch Processor.

Client/Server Support: LANDP provides client/server based cooperative processing environment that complements the underlying operating systems and interacts with many other products. It enables the sharing of access to these products and facilities such as printers, databases, and communications. It provides a widely used high-level API that insulates applications from the network topology and the operating system.

In addition to interacting with many other workstation products, LANDP also interacts with host programs such as NetView for alert processing, NetView/DM for file distribution, and CICS, and IMS for transaction processing.

Compatibility

Coexistence with NetWare: LANDP V6.0 supports Year 2000 ready products only. For the purpose of migration and compatibility of user applications there are limited exceptions to this for LANDP V6.0 in the DOS environment. Refer to the Software Requirements section.

LANDP V6.0 in the OS/2 and DOS environments can coexist with NetWare Requester V4.0 in the same workstation, and the applications running on these workstations can request services from LANDP servers and NetWare-dedicated server machines.

Upward Compatibility for Previous LANDP Applications Using Previous Levels of VisualAge Smalltalk: LANDP V6.0 provides the same LANDP support for LandpRequest as the prior version. The new VisualAge Smalltalk support classes are compatible with VisualAge Smalltalk V4.02, and later. They do not work with V4.0 or V3.0. The classes in the Smalltalk language that they use are not present in those versions. Note that any customers using VisualAge Smalltalk V4.02 will be able to use either version of the classes, but should use the newer classes to ease their migration to future versions of VisualAge Smalltalk.

Software Products No Longer Supported: The following products are no longer supported by LANDP V6.0 in the Windows environment or no longer support LANDP V6.0 in the Windows environment

  • SecureWay® Personal Communications (V4.2 and V4.3) for DOS/Windows, Windows 95, and Windows NT program package (now out of service)
  • SecureWay Communications Server for Windows NT (V5.0, V5.0.1, V6.0, V6.0.1, V6.0.2) (5639-F25) (now out of service) Formerly known as IBM eNetwork Communications Server for Windows NT.

Upward Compatibility for Previous LANDP and FBSS Applications: LANDP V6.0 provides the same LANDP and FBSS Common API allowing for upward compatibility of existing LANDP and FBSS applications. For limitations on FBSS, refer to the Limitations section.

Considerations for Migrating from DOS to OS/2 or Windows Environments: The Virtual DOS Machine (VDM) Relays provided by LANDP for the OS/2 and Windows platforms support the following migration scenarios:

  • Support for 16-bit DOS window applications running in a Windows DOS window is provided with LANDP V6.0.
  • The VDM Relay allows most of the existing LANDP DOS applications using the LANDP Common API to run in a VDM on OS/2 or Windows while requesting services from LANDP servers located in the same workstation, and from any LANDP server in the same LANDP workgroup.
  • LANDP applications using the LANDP 3270 Emulator APIs (high- or low-level) also run in the VDM of OS/2 or Windows.
  • The LANDP 3287 Emulator is also provided by LANDP V6.0 and is supported running in a VDM under OS/2 or Windows. Only the emulator program module and the user exits are supported and not other related programs such as the operator's interface.

Considerations for Migrating from DOS to Linux Environments: LANDP for Linux supports the following migration scenarios when DOS is running under DOSEMU:

  • DOS running under DOSEMU allows most of the existing LANDP DOS applications using the LANDP Common API to run on Linux while requesting services from LANDP servers located in the same workstation, and from any LANDP server in the same LANDP workgroup.

Limitations: LANDP installation and customization are no longer supported on native DOS workstations, and are not available on Linux workstations. Installation, customization, and distribution of software for DOS and Linux workstations can be performed on OS/2 or Windows workstations.

LANDP for DOS servers are not supported in the Virtual DOS Machines of either OS/2, Windows or in the Linux DOS box. Support is only for LANDP Clients, and (on OS/2 and Windows only) 3270 emulators and 3287 emulators.

Other minor limitations apply when running LANDP applications designed for the DOS environment in either an OS/2 or Windows virtual DOS Machine or Linux DOS box. For details refer to the LANDP Introduction and Planning manual.

BookMaster® format of the LANDP manuals will no longer be provided. Softcopy manuals are provided in PDF format.

Limitations for LANDP V6.0 in the Windows Environment Only: FBSI support within a Windows VDM is limited to BIWP, LDA7 and BPP components only.

LANDP V6.0 in the Windows NT environment can co-exist in a workstation with CICS for Windows NT V2.0. Customers should be aware of considerations concerning log files because the two products use the same file manager. These considerations do not apply with CICS for Windows NT V4.0, in Transaction Server for Windows NT, V4.0, or with VisualAge CICS Enterprise Application Development in VisualAge COBOL Enterprise V2.2 (5639-B92) and VisualAge PL/I Enterprise V2.1 (5639-D65).

Limitations on Windows XP

  • No NetBIOS transport
  • No Communications Server for use by SNA and PPC servers at this time
  • Use of LANDP with fast user switching is not supported at this time

Limitation on Usage of 9068-A01 and 9068-A03 Multipurpose Passport Printers

  • These printers are not available in all countries
  • Attachment via the USB port is not supported in the Linux environment
  • Other limitations may apply; contact LANDP Technical support for details

Performance Considerations: Application performance is dependent on LANDP LAN configuration and size, server location, and the number of concurrent requests to a single server. Hardware selection for server workstations, distribution of servers among workstations, and replication of servers must be considered to tune application performance.

The LANDP Servers and System Management manual and the LANDP Installation and Customization manual provide assistance with configuration parameters and tuning specific LANDP components.

The overall performance of LANDP V6.0 (Windows, OS/2 and DOS) will maintain that of LANDP V5.0.

Ignoring operating system differences, the overall performance of migrated servers onto Linux in LANDP V6.0 will be slightly degraded when compared against LANDP for OS/2. This performance degradation is due, in part, to the mapping layer.

Licensing: LANDP V6.0 is Passport Advantage only and follows on from the licensing options introduced in LANDP V5.0 which provided for client/server environments where the client application is on a device that does not have LANDP components installed. A LANDP server is defined as any workstation which executes LANDP code, specifically the LANDP supervisor component (SPV.EXE). A LANDP registered user is defined as any workstation or device that does not execute the LANDP supervisor but from which a user has access to LANDP resources.

Customers migrating from a version of LANDP, prior to LANDP V5.0 without changing their system configuration, will continue with a LANDP server install license for each workstation.

The features in LANDP that may require this alternative are the enhanced support for Java applications and Windows Terminal Server support.

Java- or Windows Terminal Server-based solutions supporting clients that request LANDP services require a LANDP license, as a registered user, for each device from which client requests for LANDP services are made. A LANDP server install license is required on the server device.

Support Services: Fee-based services are available for the LANDP product set that provide support with:

  • Proof of concept
  • Customization and setup
  • FBSS to LANDP migration
  • LANDP version-to-version migration
  • Cross-platform migration
  • 4700-based to PC-based solution migration
  • Education
