Description

WebSphere Portlet Factory is a dedicated portlet development environment for rapidly creating, customizing, deploying, and maintaining portlets that leverage existing enterprise applications, databases, and other IT assets. WebSphere Portlet Factory's ease-of-use and advanced development features can help users dramatically streamline the entire portlet development process. This can help developers deliver adaptive, robust portlets in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost it requires today.

WebSphere Portlet Factory V6.0.1 includes the following new features:

  • Updated deployment capabilities to enable automated deployments to WebSphere Portal and seamless support for IBM Rational® Application Developer 7
  • Enhanced support for rich user interfaces including drag & drop, in-line editing, tooltips, directory search, contextual menu, and intelligent page refreshing
  • New builders that support both the Portal Content Repository and integration with IBM Workplace Forms
  • Additional samples, documentation, and tutorials to support developer success

WebSphere Portlet Factory is also natively integrated with WebSphere Portal providing support for key APIs, such as request, response, and session. In addition, WebSphere Portlet Factory supports the following features of WebSphere Portal:

  • Templates — Enable users to create and reuse composite applications by arranging portlets into templates that can be deployed to different communities (for example, departments, teams, other groups of users)
  • Cooperative Portlets — Easily incorporate portlet-to-portlet communication techniques such as click to action and portlet wiring
  • People awareness — Seamlessly integrates collaboration into your portal, enabling users to send instant messages and e-mail simply by clicking on a person's name
  • Credential vault — Easily leverages the WebSphere Portal Credential Vault or LTPA tokens to provide single sign-on capabilities
  • Automated deployments — Automatically deploy and redeploy portlet war files to WebSphere Portal — without having to touch ant scripts or XML deployment descriptors
  • WebSphere Portal groups and user attributes — Easily deploy portlets that can automatically adapt depending on the user
  • WebSphere Portal modes — Automatically generate fully functioning user interfaces for each of the portlet modes, including view, edit, and configure

Additional benefits of WebSphere Portlet Factory V6.0.1 include:

  • Help accelerate portal deployment — Help to increase developer productivity and reduce development costs
  • Extend portlet creation to a broader development community — Enable developers of all skill sets to build multi-page, complex portlets without coding
  • Leverage existing enterprise applications and IT assets — Quickly create composite, high-value portlets that leverage existing investment in current applications (SAP, PeopleSoft, Siebel, Domino®) and databases
  • Create new portlets on demand — Generate multiple, customized portlets for various users or application contexts without changing underlying code
  • Empower business users to create, customize, and manage portlets — Help remove IT bottleneck and reduce time to market by empowering business user configuration
  • Automate frequently occurring development tasks — Capture commonly used design patterns and company-specific business processes as reusable components for all developers, enforcing application architecture and development best practices
  • Easily comply to open standards — Quickly build portlets without needing to know the specifics of the underlying standards such as JSR-168 and technologies like AJAX

Accessibility by people with disabilities

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

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a Value Unit table. You must obtain a Proof of Entitlement (PoE) for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processor cores require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the value unit table on the following Web site

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Sub-capacity processor (Value Unit)

For programs eligible for sub-capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) where the program runs. Refer to the "International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for sub-capacity terms" or the program's license information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms.

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.

Sub-capacity for selected middleware products

Sub-capacity licensing on a per processor or per Value Unit basis is available for selected middleware products. To offer sub-capacity licensing, IBM software products implement IBM Tivoli® License Compliance Manager within their offerings so that you can monitor and report quarterly to IBM on the use of the programs on a continuous basis.

More information can be found on the Passport Advantage Web site

Eligibility requirements for sub-capacity licensing

To be eligible for sub-capacity licensing terms on this product, you must agree to install and configure IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software, in accordance with the IBM Tivoli License Manager publications, and to enable the collection of program use data on all eligible machines subject to sub-capacity terms.

For those machines running programs with sub-capacity licensing terms, you must use IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software to monitor program use and submit to IBM an IBM Use Report each calendar quarter. Multiple copies of IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software or IBM Tivoli License Manager are not required. You can use more copies if you need them to support your operational environment, but only one copy is required to monitor all your sub-capacity licensed products.

Additionally, if this is the first product you have licensed under sub-capacity terms, you must agree to the terms of an attachment to your Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express contract and submit a new Passport Advantage enrollment form. First-time sub-capacity clients also have an opportunity to ensure a Primary Business Contact is established for their contracts.

For more information on required and entitled license capacity, license requirements and reporting, refer to 205-093 , dated April 19, 2005.

If you order (this product) under sub-capacity terms, IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software will be made available to you if you do not already have one. You must install and configure this tool for your sub-capacity products. Alternately, you can use Tivoli License Manager. Once the license manager software is installed, you will be required to register online (IBM may need to contact you in order to finalize the registration process). You must monitor program use on a continuous basis with an IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software and submit IBM Use Reports to IBM on a calendar quarterly basis.

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.
