Additional information

If you own these programs and whose maintenance terms extend beyond September 29, 2006, you will continue to have access to the program media and e-image part numbers. It is strongly recommended that if you use the XDE products, and plan to continue to use them after September 29, 2006, to purchase additional maintenance to carry them through the remainder of their planned XDE usage. This ensures that you will continue to have access to XDE product bits.

Note that XDE end of service will be September 30, 2007. By which time, it is recommended if you use IBM Rational Rose XDE products, you should adopt the various contemporary Model Driven Development offerings (for example, IBM Rational Systems Developer) to which you are entitled.

By default, beginning on September 29, 2006, entitlements to IBM Rational Rose XDE products, which come due for maintenance renewal, will be quoted renewal on the corresponding new IBM Rational Rose product.

Migration Guidance for Users of IBM Rational Rose XDE

  • Start planning now to migrate to RSx by September 30, 2007 (the end of service date for XDE).
  • If you expect to keep using XDE after September 29, 2006, then on September 28, 2006, purchase an additional year of maintenance on your currently held IBM Rational Rose XDE offerings. This will reset your next renewal date to roughly coincide with XDE end of service.
  • If you need to provision additional seats with XDE, you must complete your purchases on or before September 28, 2006.
  • Otherwise, you may use your current XDE products on a supported basis until the end of service date or the date you have completed your migration to RSx, whichever is earlier.

    During this period of time, accept all maintenance renewals based upon the products that are quoted by default. Your entitlements may be moved to the new Rose offerings for a period of time but eventually will be moved to the appropriate contemporary Model Driven Development product offering (for example, IBM Rational Systems Developer). Once your IBM Rational Rose XDE entitlements are migrated to IBM Rational Rose entitlements or to contemporary product entitlements, you will no longer have access to XDE media or downloads.

    IBM recommends that you purchase an additional year of maintenance on IBM Rational Rose XDE on September 28, 2006, (refer to the second bullet).

  • You can begin operational adoption of the contemporary Model Driven Development offerings to which you are entitled at any time you wish, without regard to whether your current maintenance is based upon a IBM Rational Rose XDE offering, a IBM Rational Rose-only offering, or the actual contemporary offering.

    This is referred to as "anticipatory access" to the contemporary offerings. It means you need not request migration of your entitlements from IBM Rational Rose XDE, or from IBM Rational Rose, to the contemporary offerings. Instead, you can simply wait for IBM to migrate your entitlements automatically at some point in the future.

  • As you adopt the contemporary offerings, you can request that your entitlements be moved to those offerings, but as just noted there is no requirement that you do so and eventually we will move the entitlements for you automatically. If you own either IBM Rational Rose XDE Developer for Visual Studio, IBM Rational Rose Developer for Visual Studio, IBM Rational Rose XDE Developer Plus, or IBM Rational Rose Enterprise, IBM asks that you not request migration of your entitlements to RSx, until such time as IBM makes further product announcements that will enrich the entitled migration paths for those four products.

Users of IBM Rational Rose

  • IBM will begin to convert IBM Rational Rose XDE entitlements into IBM Rational Rose entitlements on maintenance renewal dates beginning September 28, 2006.
  • You can begin to adopt IBM Rational Rose V7 even while your entitlements remain as IBM Rational Rose XDE. This is called "anticipatory access" to IBM Rational Rose V7. It means you need not request migration of your entitlements from IBM Rational Rose XDE offerings to IBM Rational Rose-only offerings. You can simply wait for us to migrate the entitlements automatically on the next maintenance renewal date.
  • You can begin operational adoption of the contemporary Model Driven Development offerings to which you are entitled at any time you wish, without regard to whether your current maintenance is based upon a IBM Rational Rose XDE offering, a IBM Rational Rose-only offering, or the actual contemporary offering. This is called "anticipatory access" to the contemporary offerings. You do not need to request migration of your entitlements from IBM Rational Rose XDE or from IBM Rational Rose to the contemporary offerings. You can simply wait for IBM to migrate your entitlements automatically at some point in the future.
  • As you adopt contemporary Model Driven Development offerings, you can request that your entitlements be moved to those offerings, but as just noted there is no requirement that you do so and eventually IBM will migrate the entitlements for you automatically.
