It is a platform that delivers maximum flexibility, accelerates application deployment, and lowers total cost of ownership.

  • Delivers the repository services and infrastructure platform for IBM DB2 Content Management solutions such as production imaging, case management, compliance in a regulated life sciences environment, compliance with records management, document lifecycle management, e-mail management for Lotus Notes® or Microsoft Exchange Server, digital media, and Web content management.
  • Offers a powerful and expressive XML-ready data model, Java, C++, and Web Services programming interfaces, and an integrated hierarchical storage manager that supports hundreds of storage devices and media types.
  • Scales horizontally and vertically, from Windows® through mainframes, with enterprise features such as replication to store and manage objects in multiple locations and application-transparent content caching.

What's new in IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4

  • IBM WEBi V1.02 adds support for access to documents in the Content Manager repository with Internet Explorer or Firefox. IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition users can now leverage the new IBM WEBi client.

    IBM WEBi is a Web 2.0/Ajax-based, "light weight" Web client, introduced previously for IBM DB2 Content Manager OnDemand — and now available for IBM DB2 Content Manager.

    Designed to meet the needs of the knowledge worker, IBM WEBi provides a new Web-based client for Content Manager users, providing basic content management function such as read, update, search, check-in, check-out, and versioning. The Web interface can be easily modified to a customized theme to reflect the brand, color, and logo of an organization.

  • New platform support: Linux for System z

    IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4 adds new platform support for Linux for System z. The library server and resource manager components, Java API and Content Manager (ICM) connector, Web services, XML API*, and the eClient can now be installed and used on a 64-bit Linux for System z operating system with 64-bit DB2 databases. Both SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux distributions are supported.

    *
    Excludes support for schema mapping: other connectors and services of Content Manager Information Integrator for Content including OnDemand connector, IP/390 connector, CM/400 V5R3 (V4) connectors, Federation and Advanced Workflow based on MQ Series, Content Manager Records Enabler, Oracle database support. Support for these are not available for installation and use on Linux for System z.

    This announcement fulfills the statement of direction in Software Announcement 205-231 , dated September 20, 2005.

  • New platform support: DB2 V9.1, WebSphere Application Server V6.1 and Java 5.0

    IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4 adds support for DB2 V9.1 databases, WebSphere Application Server V6.1, and the Java 5.0 platform. Refer to the Hardware requirements and Software requirements sections for more information.

  • Improved support for WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment

    Now you can install and deploy the resource manager into WebSphere Application Server ND clusters, and start and stop the resource manager services by using the Content Manager system administration client.

  • Support for 2007 Microsoft Office System XML file formats

    IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4 adds support for the new 2007 Microsoft Office System XML file formats, so you can now:

    • Index and perform text search for documents created using the new formats.
    • View, manipulate, and annotate Office XML documents within the Client for Windows, eClient viewer applet or custom solutions built using the Java viewer toolkit.
    • Perform content manager server-side document conversion with access to document manipulation and document annotation services.
    • Add MIME type definitions to tell your application how to handle the new XML file formats when objects are retrieved from the resource manager.
  • Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) compliant with dual-stack support

    IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4 is IPv6 compliant. IPv6 is the next generation of the network protocol that was created by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to replace the current protocol, IPv4. IPv6 provides greater network deployment flexibility, a much expanded address space, authentication, and privacy. It also eliminates the shortage of IPv4 addresses that are required by all new machines that are connected to the Internet. Dual stack support allows networks, such as intranets, to use a mix of IPv4 and IPv6 protocols.

    The core components of IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4 can now operate in a dual stack IPv6 network environment, when installed and configured with the appropriate levels of software prerequisites. Enablement includes:

    • Library server
    • Resource Manager
    • Core C++ and Java APIs
    • Clients: system administration client, eClient, Client for Windows
    • Installation tools and utility programs

    At the time of initial availability, IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4 will support Tivoli® Storage Manager V5.4. Support for IPv6 for Content Manager configurations, using Tivoli Storage Manager, will be enabled at a later time, with support of Tivoli Storage Manager V5.5 (refer to Software Announcement 207-290 , dated November 13, 2007. Refer to the Statement of direction of this announcement.

    This announcement fulfills the statement of direction published on the IBM IPv6 Compliance Status Web page at

  • Improvements in user and group management for LDAP-managed accounts

    Managing users and user groups with LDAP is now easier and more efficient with the following improvements to the LDAP configuration utility in the system administration client:

    • Performance optimization
      • Changes in the LDAP server for large numbers of LDAP users and user groups are now synchronized with Content Manager faster.
    • Paged results support
      • You can now import the definitions for a large number of users defined in your LDAP server without having to change your LDAP server configuration settings. For example, this means that the default value of MaxPageSize = 1000 for Microsoft Active Directory can be used.
    • Import users without reference to group membership
      • The LDAP user import utility can create users in Content Manager without having to reference the user groups associated with each user during the import process.
    • Group filtering
      • You can now define multiple filters for group names, allowing you to import only the definitions of user groups that you want and not import every group that is assigned to each imported user.
      • You can assign specific privileges to each separate group filter, to assign different privileges to each set of separately imported groups
      • You can associate each group filter with different custom group names in Content Manager for use in the library server.
    • Support for dynamic, nested, and hybrid group types for Tivoli Storage Manager
      • Dynamic, nested groups and hybrid groups can now be used with the LDAP configuration utility for import and synchronization of groups from the LDAP server.
    • Simultaneous static and dynamic group support
      • A mixture of both static or dynamic groups can now be used.
    • Improved handling of LDAP information during import
      • Data from the LDAP server itself, such as LDAP flags, are no longer stored in the Content Manager description field for the imported user or user group definitions. The data is now stored in a new, separate field, ensuring that it does get erased or modified when descriptions are updated by a content manager administrator.
    • Usability improvements
      • To help with troubleshooting and managing authorization, the user exit log is improved. The log now contains a time stamp, more information about LDAP synchronization updates, and a thread ID to help track user logons.
  • eClient enhancements, with support of Java 5, JCA data sources, and a query cancel function

    eClient deployment is improved with better platform support. It is based on Java 5, with support for WebSphere Application JCA data sources and exploitation of the IBM DB2 driver for JDBC and SQLJ support.

    In addition, the option to configure the eClient to support ad-hoc user cancellations of a query improves the ability for an end user to resume productive work in an eClient session instead of waiting for the completion of a long-running query.

  • Improvements in handling Content Manager library server-managed user passwords

    For user passwords that are managed by Content Manager and stored in the library server, IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4 now provides a library server exit that you can tailor to enforce password quality rules, such as ensuring that passwords have a minimum number of required characters.

    A sample library server exit is provided as source code to illustrate a check that enforces a policy where passwords must have a minimum length and at least one non-alphabetic character

  • Information Center enhancements that improve your ability to search, print, and update product documentation

    You can now perform the following tasks in the Information Center:

    • Update documentation — you can click the new update button to select and download the latest documentation updates.
    • Print and search subtopics — you can hover over arrow icons next to a navigation topic to print or search all of its subtopics.
    • Disable search highlights — you can enable or disable search highlighting by clicking the corresponding button.
    • Expand search results — in the search results pane, you can click Show summary to view short descriptions for each search result.
    • Search by master index — you can click a new master index tab underneath the navigation pane to view index entries in alphabetical order.
  • Improved core Java application programming interfaces (APIs) for Content Manager
    • Support of the IBM DB2 driver for JDBC and SQLJ (type 2 and type 4) eliminates the requirement for you to install the DB2 runtime client for use with the ICM connector, federated connector, or eClient server.
    • New Java APIs for administration of resource manager enhance the Content Manager system administration client, or can be used for custom applications to:
      • Remotely configure resource manager properties for Tivoli Storage Manager and store the properties in the resource manager database
      • Control object migration based on high and low threshold values
      • Stop or start and check the status of various resource manager services
  • Improved core C++ APIs for Content Manager
    • Renovated retrieve options for the core Java APIs (ICM connector) (in addition to support for the deprecated old bitwise integer retrieve options), as previously introduced in Content Manager V8.3 Fix Pack 4.
    • Introduces updates to the core C++ API (ICM Connector) similar to the renovated retrieve options for the Java APIs — now both C++ and Java APIs support the new options.

      With the improvements made to the retrieve options interface and underlying implementation of the APIs, the new options give more granular control to the application for better performance control and to enable a number of built-in optimizations which improve usability, performance, documentation, and support of the core Content Manager C++ APIs.

      No change to existing applications is required. The old bitwise integer retrieve options are deprecated, but still supported, and the behavior has not changed. However, for all new development or when you modify existing applications, use the new options for better performance.

  • Improved Web Services for Content Manager

    IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4 improves the robustness, performance, usability, and logging of Web services applications by avoiding repeated checkout, providing improved document routing functions, specific Web service WSDL delivery. Web services layer tracing. The Web services have their own log file for each application server node.

    You can now download the WSDL and XML schema for a specific Web services endpoint (CMWebService) from the URL of the endpoint with appropriate parameters in the query string to the URL. This is a convenient way to obtain the WSDL and XML schema for specific Web services compared to generating them from the system administration client.

  • Query improvements: support for longer SQL strings

    IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4 exploits an increase in underlying database support for longer query strings. This lifts the previous limit that SQL strings had to be less than 64 K characters long. In V8.4, query strings can be as long as the underlying database allows.

    When Content Manager processes an XQuery Path Expressions (XQPE) query, it translates it into an SQL statement that runs in the underlying database. Raising the query length limit means that a Content Manager user or application can now submit much longer XQPE strings.

    In addition, the sample tool, TSearchICM, has been updated to support the new renovated retrieve options in the core API, and is now provided in C++ as well as Java source code. With this tool, you can view the execution timings of long running and problematic queries. The tool accepts common query options to help simulate the options used by the application, such as the query method, the maximum number of results, document retrieval options, and so on.

  • Text indexing improved with time-out option and logging to handle problems during text index creation

    You can now set a timeout value to allow the system to continue indexing the next document when the system is taking too long to index a particular item or document. The item ID and version ID of the document that caused the problem is logged in the corresponding DB2 NSE text index event table.

  • New wizards separate the steps to install your software and configure your environment

    The new wizards help you manage your Content Manager environment:

    • The installation wizard installs the files required for the components you select into the target system directories, and updates the system registry.
    • The configuration wizard guides you through selecting and configuring the components that you installed with the installation wizard.
      • Start the configuration wizard from the installation wizard
      • Start the configuration manually at a later time (for example, after you install a fix pack)
      • Re-run the configuration wizard as many times as necessary (for example, if the configuration fails or if you apply a fix pack) without re-running the installation wizard
  • Updated to include the latest levels of OnDemand, Information Integrator Content Edition (IICE) and Performance Expert for Content Manager

    IBM DB2 Content Manager OnDemand organizes and stores printed output such as reports, statements, or invoices. In addition, it extends the reach of this information outside the enterprise with electronic statement solutions and report distribution. For more information on IBM DB2 Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms V8.4, refer to IBM Software Announcement 207-181 , dated August 7, 2007.

    DB2 Performance Expert for Content Manager (based on DB2 Performance Expert for Multiplatform) helps database administrators optimize DB2 databases for IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition on the Linux, UNIX®, and Windows platforms by providing performance management and tuning capabilities. It offers a comprehensive view into the IBM DB2 Content Manager database environment that reports, analyzes, and recommends changes on performance-related information.

Charge metrics definitions

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user and/or client devices. A PoE must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processors and partitions in the server on which the program runs or for each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate Server.

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.
