Overview
Bottom rule

IBM DB2 Connect 9.7 delivers new capabilities that can help you manage your costs and simplify application development. DB2 Connect 9.7 is designed to leverage your enterprise information -- no matter where it is stored. For those enterprises that have made DB2® for z/OS® and DB2 for i servers, the cornerstone of their On Demand Business solution, DB2 Connect provides application enablement and a robust, highly scalable communications infrastructure for connecting Web, Windows®, UNIX®, Linux®, and mobile applications to data.

Using the pureQuery technology that is included in these new editions of DB2 Connect allows you to boost the SQL performance of your data server while helping to protect your data from SQL injection attacks and other types of database application security risks. In addition, key performance metrics and correlation metadata can be captured and displayed within Optim Development Studio.

IBM DB2 Connect Application Server Advanced Edition 9.7 and IBM DB2 Connect Unlimited Advanced Edition for System z 9.7 (the new DB2 Connect 9.7 editions) enhance your IT staff 's ability to depend on the stability and reliability of your existing DB2 server investment, leverage the flexibility and ease of new programming languages and tools, and support efforts to increase the performance and security of your database applications.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM DB2 Connect 9.7 enables client applications to create, update, control, and manage DB2 databases and host systems using:

  • Structured Query Language (SQL)
  • DB2 Application Programming Interfaces (APIs )
  • Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)
  • Java™ Database Connectivity (JDBC)
  • SQLJ (embedded SQL for Java)
  • DB2 Call Level Interface (CLI)
  • Ruby on Rails
  • pureQuery
  • .NET
  • PHP
  • Python
  • Perl

Adding IBM's pureQuery technology that is provided in these new DB2 Connect editions can help enterprises boost SQL performance and support their efforts to mitigate the risk of SQL injection for their DB2 applications. In addition, key performance metrics and correlation metadata can be captured using these editions of DB2 Connect and then displayed within Optim Development Studio. Thus, pureQuery technology enables users to:

  • Capture, review, share, and optimize SQL, including the ability to replace poorly performing SQL with optimized SQL without changing the application
  • Convert DB2 dynamic SQL to static SQL to reduce CPU consumption, provide better manageability, and enforce tighter security
  • Prevent SQL injection by restricting the SQL executed by a specific application to an approved set of SQL statements
  • Display performance metrics within Optim Development Studio to identify SQL hot spots
  • Trace problem SQL back to its source code for faster problem isolation
  • Visualize the impact of database changes using Optim Development Studio

The pureQuery technology from IBM provides conversion and consolidation of literals within SQL statements. SQL statements including literals are unique, helping to reduce the likelihood of the database server finding them in the dynamic cache, which can affect performance. Additionally, SQL statements with literals become difficult for the database administrator (DBA) to convert to static SQL. By converting literals to parameters or variables and then consolidating those with common structure into a single statement, you can use pureQuery to help:

  • Improve application performance because the resultant SQL statement, when executed dynamically, is more likely to be cached, avoiding the overhead of parsing the statement and computing an access plan
  • Simplify management of static packages by reducing the number of statements to be captured and bound
  • Support your efforts to improve security by increasing the manageability and performance of the pureQuery SQL restriction capability

IBM's pureQuery technology allows incremental SQL capture and merge, simplifying use of pureQuery over the application lifecycle. Now test suites running on separate systems can capture SQL independently and merge the SQL into a common file for visualization, optimization, and binding more easily. Furthermore, incremental application enhancements can be captured incrementally and merged without recapturing previously captured statements.

IBM's pureQuery technology also provides the ability to configure data source parameters on the application server online, helping to increase the flexibility of managing a pureQuery deployment. Previously, changing data source parameters, such as setting capture mode on or execution mode to static, required rebooting the application server. Now these configuration parameters can be set without impacting the availability of the application server. Furthermore, multiple applications sharing a common data source can each have unique values assigned, increasing deployment flexibility.

To read more about DB2 Connect 9.7, refer to Software Announcement 209-139, dated May 19, 2009.

To read more about pureQuery technology and Optim Development Studio, refer to Software Announcement 209-131, dated June 02, 2009.

Product positioning
Bottom rule

Both of these new DB2 Connect editions integrate with Optim Development Studio to enable database application developers to more rapidly develop higher quality code by providing a feature-rich database application development environment. This environment helps simplify development by providing procedure building and debugging features along with database object management, project management, and optimization tools.

DB2 Connect Application Server Advanced Edition 9.7

DB2 Connect Application Server Advanced Edition is designed for large-scale, demanding environments. Its licensing terms and conditions are meant to address specific needs of multitier client/server applications as well as applications that utilize Web technologies. DB2 Connect Application Server Advanced Edition license charges are based on the size or the number of Processor Value Units available to the application servers where the application is running. License charges are not affected by the number of users of the application, the size of the DB2 Connect server itself, nor the size of the System z or System i® database server.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Advanced Edition for System z 9.7

DB2 Connect Unlimited Advanced Edition is ideal for organizations with extensive usage of DB2 Connect, especially where multiple applications are involved. This product provides program code of the DB2 Connect Personal Edition as well as program code identical to the DB2 Connect Application Server Advanced Edition for unlimited deployment throughout an organization.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Advanced Edition license fees are based one host license for the DB2 for z/OS server, plus the size of the DB2 for z/OS server (as measured in MSUs). License fees are not affected by the number of processors available to the DB2 Connect servers nor the number of processors available on the machines where the application is running. This makes DB2 Connect Unlimited Advanced Edition an ideal choice for organizations where multiple applications are utilizing DB2 Connect, or organizations with a mix of two-tier, multitier client/server, Web-based, and mobile applications.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which this software product can be licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor technology (defined within the PVU table* by processor vendor, brand, type and model number). IBM continues to define a processor, for purposes of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. Each software product has a unique price per PVU. To determine the total cost of deploying an individual software product in a specific hardware environment, you must take the following steps:

  1. For each processor core in the hardware environment on which the software product is to be licensed, determine the PVU requirement based on its processor technology per the PVU table*.
  2. Add the PVU requirements for all processor cores in the hardware environment.
  3. Multiply the software product's price per PVU by the total number of PVUs required as determined in step 2 above.

PVU entitlements are specific to a software product and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another software product.

Unless you have deployed eligible sub-capacity products according to the sub-capacity* terms, you must obtain PVU Proof of Entitlements (PoEs) for the maximum number of activated** physical processor cores in the hardware environment made available to or managed by the software product. This is also referred to as full capacity licensing.

(**) Activated processor cores are physical processor cores that are available for use in a server. They include processor cores:

  • That are activated (available for use) when the server is shipped by the manufacturer
  • That are activated subsequently through activation codes purchased from the server manufacturer by the customer
  • Whose capacity can be limited by the customer through Virtualization technologies, Operating System commands and BIOS settings.

(*) For information regarding PVU and sub-capacity licensing, including the latest PVU table, visit

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

Host server

A host server license must be obtained for each independent production DB2 for z/OS data server being accessed with DB2 Connect Unlimited Advanced Edition for System z. Each production DB2 for z/OS subsystem is considered to be a data server and as such, a host server license must be obtained for each production DB2 subsystem that will be accessed with DB2 Connect Unlimited Advanced Edition for System z. Where the production DB2 subsystem is part of a DB2 Data Sharing Group, only one host server entitlement is required for all DB2 subsystems that are a part of the DB2 Data Sharing Group. When multiple independent production DB2 subsystems or multiple production DB2 Data Sharing Groups are used, one host server license must be obtained for each independent production DB2 subsystem or DB2 Data Sharing Group. Non production DB2 subsystems or DB2 Data Sharing Groups are included in the associated production DB2 subsystems or DB2 Data Sharing Groups host server license.

Million Service Units (MSU)

In addition to the host server license, usage charges are based on the MSUs per hour entitlements of the DB2 for z/OS server or DB2 Server for VSE and VM server. DB2 Connect usage-based charges for MSUs apply to any single DB2 for z/OS subsystem or DB2 Server for VSE and VM database server that users will be connecting to. Charges for this program are based on the total MSU capacity of the attached DB2 for z/OS, or DB2 Server for VSE and VM host system, and is not limited to the number of MSUs that are actually used by the DB2 for z/OS, or DB2 Server for VSE and VM products on that host. Where the DB2 subsystem is part of a DB2 Data Sharing Group, MSUs are based on the MSU entitlements of the entire DB2 Data Sharing Group. DB2 Connect MSUs are based on capacity of sum of all licensed sub-systems or data sharing groups.

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. Consult the IBM Software Support Handbook for further information at

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 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.

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

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. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.
