Overview

IBM Workplace Forms V2.6 delivers a security-rich, dynamic, and intelligent front-end to On Demand Business processes. IBM Workplace Forms consists of the server, designer, and client viewer products that together enable the creation, deployment, and streamlining of XML forms-based processes.

By leveraging open standards to integrate an intelligent user interface with high-value, back-end systems, IBM Workplace Forms provides public and private sector organizations with security-rich forms that leverage existing sources and systems to help better serve customers and increase operational efficiency.

IBM Workplace Forms comes with three products:

IBM Workplace Forms Viewer V2.6 is a feature-rich desktop application used to view, fill, sign, submit, and route e-forms. It functions on the desktop or within a browser and enables full connectivity with real-time integration using Web services. The open-standards framework of IBM Workplace Forms lets IBM Workplace Forms Viewer operate in portal or stand-alone environments, in online or offline modes, and as a plug-in for thin or rich-client browsers.

IBM Workplace Forms Designer V2.6 is an easy-to-use WYSIWYG e-form design environment based on the Eclipse open-source framework that supports the drag-and-drop creation of precision forms in multiple languages with an open and accessible, XML-schema-derived data model. IBM Workplace Forms Designer leverages the XForms open standard to deliver advanced forms-based business process automation solutions that integrate seamlessly across lines of business applications and IT infrastructure.

IBM Workplace Forms Server V2.6 enables the creation and delivery of XML forms applications. It delivers a common, open interface to enable integration of e-forms data with server-side applications using industry-standard XML schemas. It also delivers a true zero-footprint solution, providing e-forms to external users quickly and efficiently within a browser and without requiring additional downloads or plug-ins.

IBM Workplace Forms Server delivers a low-administration solution for data-capture requirements while supporting precise viewing and printing, automated validation, and the security capabilities of XML e-forms.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor

A processor (commonly called a "CPU" or "core") is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and/or logic unit. With multicore technology each core is considered a processor. With full capacity licensing, a proof of entitlement (PoE) must be acquired for all activated processors on the server available to the program or a component of the program.

Registered user

A registered user is one and only one named individual within or outside your enterprise which is recorded in a registry (table, directory, file, and so on) maintained by you. A PoE must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under an registered 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.

Authorized user

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside your enterprise. A 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.

IBM Workplace Forms Page

The unit of measure for authorized use of IBM Workplace Forms Viewer component based on electronic form content resulting in a full or partial standard paper page when printed. For usage purposes, Standard Paper Sizes are defined as A4 and 8.5x11.

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Warranty: This program includes a warranty for one year from acquisition from IBM or an authorized IBM Business Partner. For one year from acquisition of the program, this warranty provides the customer with access to databases containing program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or otherwise obtain and install.

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three 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.

Customers 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, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund.

  • For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is included in the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement.

This fee service provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations.

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.

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, only 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, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available on the IBM eServer® platform. These services provide the opportunity for greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers 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 IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM.

Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
