Replacement information

WebSphere® Developer Debugger for System z® (WDDz) has been removed from the marketplace with no entitled replacement. For current customers of WDDz who wish to maintain support, renewals will continue to be offered for sale. Current WDDz Customers are encouraged to look at a product in the IBM Rational Developer for System z (RDz) family (IBM Rational Developer for System z with EGL or IBM Rational Developer for System z with Javatm) which contains the same remote debugging function along with a variety of other tools for System z development and analysis. A discounted tradeup for existing WDDz customers is offered to RDz. If there are questions, please contact your IBM Sales representative.

All prior releases of IBM Rational Developer for System z (RDz) have been removed from the marketplace. RDz V7.1 is replaced by one of two offerings: IBM Rational Developer for System z with Java (RDz with Java) or IBM Rational Developer for System z with EGL (RDz with EGL). RDz with Java integrates the RDz tools with IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software V7.5 (RAD), maintaining the same packaging structure as RDz V7.1, to provide end-to-end application development tools for Java Enterprise Edition and System z applications. RDz with EGL integrates the RDz tools with IBM Rational Business Developer V7.5 (RBD), altering the RDz V7.1 structure and replacing RAD with RBD, to offer end-to-end application development for EGL, System z, and light-weight Web 2.0 applications. Details on the changes to product structure can be found in the RDz V7.5 Software Announcement 208-375, dated October 07, 2008.

Current customers are entitled to either RDz V7.5 offering, but not both. The default entitlement is to RDz with Java to maintain the same entitlement structure. If customers wish to exchange the RDz with Java entitlement for RDz with EGL this can be performed for no charge. Please contact your IBM Sales representative and RDz product management to initiate the exchange.
