Enterprise Service Tools

Enterprise Service Tools is an integrated perspective that assists a Web Service developer in the following tasks:

  • Creating a CICS web service that uses a new or existing CICS application as its application component
  • Creating a IMS Enterprise Suite SOAP Gateway web service that uses a new or existing IMS application as its application component
  • Creating a web service that is not runtime-specific from a new or existing application
  • Using the System z Database Application Generator to create a COBOL CICS application that accesses a z/OS DB2 database
  • Developing a comprehensive web service that collects and processes data from multiple sources, including CICS non-terminal applications, CICS terminal applications, and web services

CICS Service Flow feature

CICS TS V4.1 includes support for business services through the service flow runtime capability. This integrated capability of the CICS TS V4.1 runtime is fully compatible with the CICS Service Flow feature V3.2. Customers upgrading to CICS TS V4.1 may use the integrated support for business services in this release as a direct replacement for the CICS Service Flow feature V3.2.

CICS TS V4.1 is shipped with CICS Service Flow runtime, which previously was available only as a separately orderable feature. The runtime allows the deployment of CICS business services (or service flows) created by the Service Flow Modeller component of IBM Rational Developer for System z V7.1, or later.

The base capabilities provided by CICS TS to access CICS application interfaces extend to capabilities such as:

  • Web services
  • Link3270 Bridge
  • Distributed Program Link (DPL)
  • WebSphere MQ Adapter
  • Front End Programming Interface (FEPI)

The CICS Service Flow Runtime exploits these capabilities when generating the CICS business service function to provide the implementation needed to reuse the existing CICS applications as components in the CICS business service flow.

For more information on the CICS Service Flow Feature, refer to Software announcement 205-303, dated November 22, 2005.

For more information on the CICS Service Flow Feature, refer to Software announcement 209-135, dated April 28, 2009.

CICS Service Component Architecture

To make it easier to publish and use CICS applications in a service oriented application, CICS TS V4.1 provides infrastructure and run-time support for deploying and managing application components. These components provide a common programming interface for service invocation, and a service description that is compliant with the SCA. IBM Rational Developer for System z provides tooling to assist in modeling, generating, configuring, and deploying the components to the CICS V4.1 environment.

The SCA capability provided by CICS TS gives customers investigating their own component architecture solutions the opportunity to exploit the CICS infrastructure instead, reducing their maintenance costs and potentially providing a richer more flexible solution. For customers that have not yet embarked on a SCA strategy, this capability provides both a low cost of entry option to doing so and a benefit from the CICS tooling enhancements built on top of the component architecture.

For more information on the CICS SCA, refer to Software announcement 209-135, dated April 28, 2009, for CICS TS V4.1.

New in V8

A host of significant new functions and feature enhancements in V8 build on an already comprehensive set of features. They support the following themes:

  • More productive application development and maintenance
  • Improved manageability, installation, and rollout
  • Code modernization and restructuring

More productive application development and maintenance

Expanded real-time syntax check capabilities including:

  • Improved performance for initial parsing and parsing while typing, speeding program validation
  • Multithreaded copybook handling where copybooks are parsed in the background for improved responsiveness
  • More robust language support for COBOL and PL/I, including the COBOL REPLACE verb and PL/I constructs such as:
    • Macros
    • Entry variables
    • Generic attributes
    • cdecl, optlink, stdcall attributes of the linkage rule for procedure options
    • norescan attribute of activate directive
    • Built-in (intrinsic) functions and preprocessor functions
  • Better real-time validation of EXEC SQL statements including database objects such as tables, schemas, and column names

New content assist options for EXEC SQL statements in COBOL and PL/I including:

  • SQL statement names
  • SQL keywords
  • Database objects such as table, schema, and column names
  • The ability to use a live connection to DB2 on the mainframe or a cached schema for offline access

New compare editors for COBOL and PL/I offering a color highlighted structured view including an outline indicating where changes occur in the code, providing more productive navigation and an easier understanding of code during comparisons.

New Eclipse-like editors for COBOL and PL/I to compliment the existing LPEX editor. The new editors do not replace LPEX, which is targeted for ISPF-like development, but offer an alternative for users who seek a more eclipse-centric experience as offered by existing Eclipse editors such as the Java and local C++ editors.

The new Eclipse-like editors offer a customizable template content assist similar to the Java editor. Code templates, including variables, can be defined in the Developer for System z preferences and automatically provided during content assist operations. The templates help speed creation of code based on common patterns or shop rules during the code creation process.

Quick dataset and job access via new Retrieve Dataset and Retrieve Job actions and wizards. Using the Retrieve wizards developers can reduce the number of steps used to access assets on the host from nine steps to four steps or fewer. In lab tests, these wizards have been found to improve the time to access a dataset by 25% over previous releases and in some cases offer faster access than ISPF.

  • Retrieve Jobs can search on job name or job number and displays identifying criteria such as timestamp and return code
  • Retrieve Datasets offers wildcard searching and the ability to narrow on sub patterns easily

Vastly improved Endevor integration and usability including:

  • Display panels, which:
    • Validated search fields instead of a command line syntax
    • Display required fields indicators
    • Automatically capitalizate entry fields that are case sensitive
    • Filter on CCID criteria
  • New Endevor operation wizards, which:
    • Pre-populate of wizard fields based on element selected in the Endevor system
    • Provide drop-down lists for fields that have defined inputs with limited choices
    • Display checkboxes for Yes/No fields instead of Y/N character input
    • Pre-validate criteria to check inputs prior to submission to Endevor for processing
  • Views now sort member lists by type for each subsystem instead of large lists of intermixed members per system
  • Views hide empty subsystems or type lists to reduce visual clutter
  • Support for Endevor SIGNIN and MOVE actions
  • Integration between Endevor and the Developer for System z properties view offers a snapshot of Endevor element statistics
  • Improved performance of member list display and member browsing

Generally improved usability via reordering of menus, wizard simplification, and task simplification

The z/OS connection creation page has been simplified. It is no longer necessary to configure a separate port for Job submission as Developer for System z can multiplex on the base MVS™ port.

The SCLM integration has been enhanced offering

  • Property views containing all info for SCLM account records
  • New preferences pages allowing reordering and sorting of columns
  • Enhanced performance for SCLM projects

The BMS and MFS map editors has been enhanced to include:

  • Copying fields using CNTL+mouse drag and drop
  • Auxiliary hairlines creation for aligning fields and labels

Remote System Explorer now provides the ability to copy/paste or drag-and-drop binary load modules within a single LPAR instance. Previously only source/text was supported.

Fault Analyzer Integration allows users to dynamically access source code from an executing Fault Analysis session.

Improved manageability, installation, and rollout

  • The Host installation and configuration process is simplified to reduce the amount of time taken to install, configure, or upgrade the product after initial purchase. New installation ISPF panel have been provided to ease the typical installation and maintenance activities for the z/OS components
  • The client install now has the option to specify a default z/OS connection at client install time which will be automatically defined for every Developer for System z workspace.
  • The IBM Rational Developer for System z infocenter installation and setup has been simplified to reduce the number of steps required for local or remote installation
  • Menu Manager actions can now be applied to project and the Remote System Explorer, so developers have an additional location to customize depending on their preference
  • Developer organizations can now collect statistics on Developer for System z usage as part of the Measured Improvement framework, to help users determine if they are adhering to best practices and maximizing ROI. Developer for System z can be configured to collect these statistics for analysis using Rational Insight to provide real-time dashboards of the health of the development process and organization
  • Developer for System z now offers enterprise rollout support, providing a mechanism to centralize preferences, configuration data and application maintenance. Settings can be defined within a Developer for System z session and exported to the host for sharing. When other users connect to the mainframe settings and maintenance can be automatically pushed to client machines with no developer interaction. This helps keep client machines accessing a host in sync with host configuration updates avoiding costly import/export processes and management overhead. Users will be notified prior to any new settings being applied. Developer for System z currently supports the rollout of the following items:
    • Triggering of Installation Manager product updates via a remote repository
    • Eclipse preferences
    • Remote System mappings
    • Remote System definitions
    • Developer for System z Property Groups
  • Enterprise rollout is supported by an integrated export wizard with the Developer for System z environment. The export tool can export a predefined configuration directly to the mainframe without worrying about creating configuration files by hand. The settings can be automatically shared by authorized users who are limited by mainframe security rules to those authorized.

Code modernization and restructuring

Developer for System z offers the ability to automatically restructure code.

  • New refactoring wizards for COBOL offering the ability to define new paragraphs based on code selection. The wizard will create the necessary perform structures in the existing code location and move the highlighted code into a new paragraph structure in seconds resulting in completely valid code.
  • Structural refactorings such as the paragraph refactor can be used with IBM Rational Asset Analyzer and iLog to enhance refactoring of business rules in existing code to adapt a Business Rules Management System approach to sharing business logic across the organization.
  • Additional integration is available with IBM Rational Asset Analyzer to enhance the code understand and analysis phase of the development process. Analyzing code is now easier with direct access to analysis results from within a remote project.

SOA, web services, and RESTful services

Several Enterprise Service Tools usability enhancements have been added to simplify and improve the web service development experience. The single-service wizards have been updated to include top-down support for IMS PL/I code generation, including new wizards and walkthroughs to help developers with all service development scenarios.

Integrated CICS Explorer™ and Application Deployment Manager tooling

IBM Rational Developer for System z includes a newly upgraded and integrated copy of the CICS Explorer, based on the version made available in CICS TS V4.1 as described in Software Announcement 209-135, dated April 28, 2009. The CICS Explorer is enhanced with the IBM Rational Developer for System z Application Deployment Manager (ADM). The CICS Explorer and ADM allow you to query, define, and install needed CICS resources, Services, and SCA bundles. The combination of CICS Explorer and IBM Rational Developer for System z simplifies the CICS development process by removing or automating several manual steps in the service deployment and testing cycle. The developer no longer has to return to the green screen, or work with CICS systems programmers via manual interaction, to define many of the CICS application resources they need for testing application changes. IBM Rational Developer for System z also gives developers the ability, if permitted in the CICS environment, to define and manage their own CICS resource definitions to speed applications development. Combined with the IBM Rational Developer for System z Manifest Process Tool tech preview, developers and systems programmers can collaborate in an easier manner to improve and speed CICS application development workflow. These tools also ease the maintenance and development of CICS application in the IBM Rational Developer for System z Unit Test environment where developers may not have much CICS environment management experience.

The IBM Rational Developer for System z Enterprise Service Tools and z/OS project structures have been integrated with ADM to define and manage CICS application resources that need to be defined for CICS Web Services and Service Flows and transactional applications to be deployed and tested. The resource definitions can be tied to the artifacts generated and maintained by IBM Rational Developer for System z and managed as part of the software life cycle via a source code management system such as IBM ClearCase or IBM Rational Team Concert for System z.

The integrated CICS Explorer also provides the foundation within IBM Rational Developer for System z for integrating the suite of CICS Tools from IBM - Interdependency Analyzer, Performance Analyzer, and Configuration Manager. The eclipse interfaces for these tools are provided separately, but can be integrated into the IBM Rational Developer for System z shell to provide a single workbench for all CICS development activities.

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

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. This warrenty does not apply to the Supported programs of the IBM Rational Developer for System z Unit Test extension, which are provided unwarranted.

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 for the IBM Rational Developer for System z with Java, IBM Rational Developer for System z with EGL, IBM Rational Developer for zEnterprise and the System z Personal Development Toolkit component of the IBM Rational Developer for System z Unit Test program products version or release 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 (modifications or fixes), 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

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

Volume orders (IVO)

No

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage website at

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

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

Usage restriction

Yes. The IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.0.1 media package contains complimentary bundled offerings. Usage of and service support for these bundled offerings is subject to restrictions. These restrictions are described in the License Information documents. In order to use any of the bundled offerings outside of the usage restrictions and to receive full service support, you must obtain a separate license for the offering.

The Technology Previews are unwarranted software provided "as is" for evaluation and feedback purposes only. These Technology Previews are not covered under the same licensing, warranty, program technical support and software maintenance as the Rational Developer for System z product. For each Technology Preview, there is a separate license with unique terms and conditions covering licensing, warranty, program technical support and software maintenance. See the license for the Technology Preview you want to evaluate to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of that software.

Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance)

Yes. Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express. Product upgrades and technical support are provided by the Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software and Technical Support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with each program license 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.

While your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

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

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used 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 Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
