Description
Bottom rule

New features that support 64-bit application development

  • A new compiler option, ADDR, lets you indicate whether the compiler generates 32-bit or 64-bit object programs.
  • Several limits on COBOL data-item size have been significantly raised. For example, the maximum size of the LOCAL-STORAGE,WORKING-STORAGE, and LINKAGE sections is essentially unlimited (up to the addressing capacity of the machine) if ADDR(64) is in effect.

    This support facilitates programming with large amounts of data, for example:

    • DB2/COBOL applications that use DB2® BLOB and CLOB data types
    • COBOL XML applications that parse or generate large XML documents

Support for files larger than 2 GB

STL and VSAM files created by COBOL for AIX V3 programs are no longer limited to a maximum size of 2 GB. These files can also be processed by V2 programs that are run with the V3 runtime library.

New FILEMODE runtime option

FILEMODE lets you specify whether newly created STL and VSAM files will have the new large format that supports files larger than 2 GB, or the small format and the 2 GB maximum size that is compatible with STL and VSAM files created by V2 programs.

Additional Unicode features

Support for national (Unicode UTF-16) data has been enhanced. Several additional kinds of data items can now be described implicitly or explicitly as USAGE NATIONAL, as follows:

  • External decimal (national decimal)
  • External floating-point (national floating-point)
  • Numeric-edited items
  • National-edited items
  • Group (national group) items, supported by the GROUP-USAGE NATIONAL clause

Many COBOL language elements in support of new national UTF-16 data

  • Numeric data with USAGE NATIONAL (national decimal and national floating point) can be used in arithmetic operations and in any language constructs that support numeric operands.
  • Edited data with USAGE NATIONAL is supported in the same language constructs as any existing edited type, including editing and de-editing operations associated with the MOVE statements.
  • Group items that contain all national data can be defined with the GROUP-USAGE NATIONAL clause, which results in the group behaving as an elementary item in most language constructs. This support facilitates use of national groups in statements such as STRING, UNSTRING, and INSPECT.
  • The NUMVAL and NUMVAL-C intrinsic functions can take a national literal or national data item as an argument.

Using these new national data capabilities, it is now practical to develop COBOL programs that exclusively use Unicode for all application data.

XML GENERATE statement enhancements

The XML GENERATE statement is extended with new syntax that gives you more flexibility and control over the form of the XML document that is generated:

  • The WITH ATTRIBUTES phrase allows the user to specify that eligible items in the XML document be generated as XML attributes instead of as elements.
  • The WITH ENCODING phrase allows the user to specify the encoding of the generated document.
  • The NAMESPACE and NAMESPACE-PREFIX phrases allow generation of XML documents that use XML namespaces.
  • The WITH XML-DECLARATION phrase includes the version and the encoding information in the document.
  • The XML-GENERATE statement now supports generation of XML documents encoded in UTF-8 Unicode.

XML PARSE statement enhancements

Direct support is provided for parsing XML documents that are encoded in UTF-8 Unicode.

Additional enhancements

  • Compiler listings now cross-reference copybooks to the library names and file names from which the copybooks are obtained.
  • Support for new features of DB2 V9 is enabled when you use the integrated DB2 coprocessor (SQL compiler option).
  • Usability enhancements to COBOL-DB2 applications are available when you use the integrated DB2 coprocessor, for example, an explicitly coded LOCAL-STORAGE SECTION or WORKING-STORAGE SECTION is no longer required.
  • A new callable service, iwzGetSortErrno, makes it possible to obtain the sort or merge error number after each sort or merge operation.
  • The REDEFINES clause has been enhanced such that for data that are not level 01, the subject of the entry can be larger than the data item being redefined.
  • A new compiler option, MDECK, causes the output from library-processing statements to be written to a file.
  • The literal in a VALUE clause for a data item of class national can be alphanumeric.

New and improved distributed debugger

The IBM Debugger for AIX is an interactive source-level debugger. It works on an AIX-based client that is connected locally or remotely through a network connection to a debugger engine running on AIX or on a Windows-based client that is connected remotely to a debugger engine running on AIX. The Debugger for AIX enables you to debug programs that are written in C, C++, and COBOL in 32-bit or 64-bit mode from the convenience of your workstation.

The debugger displays application source files and the elements in those source files. You can single-step, step through, step over, or stop execution at a specified line or condition. While controlling execution, you can monitor variables, registers, memory, call stacks, and other elements.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) agreement applies for subscription and support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

License Information form number

L-JYIP-7KMRWC

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as 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 Subscription and Support (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.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time.

Volume orders (IVO)

Yes. Contact your IBM representative.
