Additional announcement detail
The fully integrated IBM Express Runtime V2.1, V2.1.1, and V2.2 products are being replaced with a more flexible and open version called IBM Express Runtime V3.2. Unlike the previous versions that included all middleware and toolkits in a single installation, IBM Express Runtime V3.2 is a bundle of the existing media packs for WebSphere Application Server V7 - Express Edition, DB2 Express V9.5, and Informix Dynamic Server Express V11.50 products as well as the IBM Software Assembly Toolkit V3.2. The toolkit will provide the same powerful capabilities that partners and customers can use to package up complete solutions into a single deployable package. Now that the toolkit is separate from the middleware, Partners and customers will find it much easier to include other middleware products into their solutions in addition to the provided Express products.
IBM Express Runtime V3.2 will not include an integrated console to manage the basic administration of the middleware products. The administration capabilities of the individual products can be used directly to replace the function of the integrated console.
IBM Express Runtime Plus will no longer be offered as a separate growth path for IBM Express Runtime users. With the availability of IBM Software Assembly Toolkit as a stand-alone product, Partners and customers can easily create solutions with workgroup and enterprise-level middleware products to provide an even more complete growth path for Express Runtime solutions.
