Overview

Effective on the dates listed in the Product withdrawals section, IBM will withdraw from marketing and service the products and selected parts/features listed in the Product withdrawals section licensed under the IBM International Program License Agreement (IPLA).

The older versions of IBM Informix™ Client SDK, Informix Connect, JDBC Driver, and Informix Server Administrator are being withdrawn from service. Newer versions of products are available and fully compatible with their predecessors. We recommend upgrading to remain on support. There is no upgrade charge for newer versions of these products.

Effective on the dates listed in the Product withdrawals section, IBM will withdraw support from the product releases listed in the Product withdrawals and licensed under the IBM International Program License Agreement.

On or after these dates, you can no longer obtain the withdrawn products directly from IBM. They may be obtained on an as-available basis through IBM authorized remarketers.

Replacement information: For details, refer to the Replacement information section.

The Finance Foundation for Capital Markets solution bundles are being withdrawn from marketing, effective June 14, 2005, and from service, effective September 30, 2006, because several of the products that make up the bundles are now downlevel. In addition, since these bundles were announced in 2003, newer and/or different combinations of products may be more appropriate. Recommended stand-alone products as shown in the following table can be ordered independently in whatever combination is appropriate. This allows flexibility in combining the right set of products for each customer's requirements.
