Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

IBM Software Assembly Toolkit is capable as of November 21, 2008 , when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it. A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), containing details on the products accessibility compliance, can be requested at

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.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

The customer must provide at least the minimum hardware and software environments in which the IBM Express Runtime offerings will operate. The customer must assign administrator level authority to the user ID performing installation of the programs.

Software Maintenance is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express. Installation and technical support is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service enhances your productivity, with voice and electronic access into IBM support organizations.

Packaging

The IBM Software Assembly Toolkit media pack include multiple disks labeled Installation Program, which include the installation programs for the supported platforms. In addition, the packs include one disk labeled Quick Start Guide, which contains documentation to describe how to get started using the product.

DVD media pack

The IBM Software Assembly Toolkit V2.2.1 offering is shipped in one multilingual, multiplatform DVD media package that contains installation program DVDs.

The License Information form number for the IBM Software Assembly Toolkit is L-KSHP-7HA5ZR.

Security, auditability, and control

The Express Runtime offerings primarily rely on the IBM security provided by its middleware components.

WebSphere® Application Server - Express uses either the security features of the respective operating systems, such as local user registry or an LDAP server. Express Runtime provides an LDAP configuration wrapper that will automate many of the steps required to secure WebSphere Application Server - Express with an LDAP server. However, the customer is responsible for evaluation and selection of the various WebSphere security features, including the implementation of authentication and authorization policies. This responsibility extends to the administration of WebSphere security policies and security-related policies external to WebSphere, such as the operating environment, network topology and security, and physical security.

To protect data and resources associated with the database server, DB2 Universal Databasetm Express Edition uses a combination of external security services and internal access control information. To access a database server, the user must pass some security checks before being given access to database data or resources.

DB2® products interface with external security mechanisms available with operating systems on which DB2 products are supported as well as support for Kerberos security mechanism. DB2 UDB has an integrated audit facility that can be used to track data access by users. The subsequent analysis of an audit log can lead to improvements in the control of data access and the ultimate prevention of malicious or careless unauthorized access to the data.

Informix® Dynamic Server Express Edition Version V10.0 leverages the security and auditability features of the host hardware or software.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

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

http://www.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/services/cwepassport.nsf/ wdocs/pvu_licensing_for_customers

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.

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.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The terms and conditions for IBM Software Assembly Toolkit as previously announced in Software Announcement 207-060, dated April 03, 2007, originally titled IBM Express Runtime, are unchanged.

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. 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.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

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 eServertm 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 Agenttm.

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.
