Description

Planned availability

  • October 31, 2003, DB2 Everyplace V8.1.4 (electronic software delivery).
  • December 5, 2003, CPU Option of DB2 UDB Express V8.1 (electronic software delivery).
  • November 21, 2003, DB2 Everyplace V8.1.4 (media).
  • January 9, 2004, CPU Option of DB2 UDB Express Edition V8.1 (media).

DB2 Everyplace V8.1.4 adds new features to the DB2 Everyplace database and the DB2 Everyplace Synchronization Server. These new features support on demand requirements including integration, automation, and virtualization of resources.

DB2 Everyplace Synchronization Server V8.1.4 fully supports DB2 UDB V8.1. Although previous versions of DB2 Everyplace required DB2 UDB V7.2 for the administration database (but supported DB2 UDB V8.1 as a JDBC datasource), DB2 Everyplace V8.1.4 uses DB2 UDB V8.1 for the administration and mirror databases and as a JDBC or DataPropagator™ datasource (configured via XML Scripting). In addition, JDBC adapter may enforce referential integrity at the data source. The ability to reorder subscriptions and subscription sets facilitates maintaining referential integrity at the data source.

Other data source enhancements include the ability to control datatype mapping from the mirror database to the target database and support for IBM Cloudscape as both a data source and a mobile database.

DB2 Everyplace V8.1.4 support for IBM Cloudscape data sources is implemented with a pure Java synchronization client. This enables the Cloudscape database to act as a client for the DB2 Everyplace Synchronization Server with full synchronization with any supported datasource of the DB2 Everyplace Sync Server. IBM Cloudscape is also supported as a data source enabling DB2 Everyplace database or Cloudscape database clients to synchronize data with a Cloudscape server. This allows DB2 Everyplace Synchronization Server to be used for:

  • Cloudscape to Cloudscape synchronization
  • DB2 Everyplace to Cloudscape Synchronization
  • Cloudscape to any supported DB2 Everyplace data source synchronization (replaces the IBM Cloudsync capability previously available)

Usability improvements:

  • Administration is improved with a new Sync Server Administration API.
  • The existing XML scripting API is improved with the ability to alter existing items through the XML scripting interface and configuring DataPropagator V8 data sources.
  • Support for HTTP proxies in the Synchronization Client improves the ability for mobile users to get connected.
  • The default Application Server included with DB2 Everyplace V8.1.4 on Windows platforms now runs as a Windows Service to enable tighter integration with the Windows platform.

The DB2 Everyplace database includes a significant new feature for ad-hoc queries on mobile devices. Case-insensitive search queries enable application developers to easily perform generic searches across a DB2 Everyplace database to find user data quickly.

Mobile databases provide users with a fast, powerful search mechanism. Case-insensitive search enables users to search without requiring matching case or custom routines that modify data or search queries to improve the chances of desired results. In addition, the Integer and Decimal datatype autoincrement capability, and cursor hold have been added.

DB2 Everyplace V8.1.4 also significantly reworks the Binary Large Object (BLOB) support of the DB2 Everyplace database to support piece-meal retrieval of BLOB data.

Application development:

Application development is a significant area of investment for DB2 Everyplace. DB2 Everyplace V8.1.4 supports Microsoft™.NET development and major enhancements to Java development. DB2 Everyplace now provides a .NET Framework and a .NET Compact Framework interface for both the DB2 Everyplace database and the DB2 Everyplace Sync Client. Support for both the base and compact frameworks enables .NET development on either Windows workstations and servers or Windows mobile devices and PocketPCs. The DB2 Everyplace database is also exposed as an ADO.NET Data Provider for easier .NET database integration.

DB2 Everyplace Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) support is improved with support for several new methods including getFloat() and setFloat(). DB2 Everyplace V8.1.4 adds JSR169 compatibility and support for the DB2 Everyplace remote stored procedure adapter through JDBC. Several performance improvements have been made across the JDBC interface. The IBM J9 Java Virtual Machine is bundled with the DB2 Everyplace application development tools to enable easier mobile device Java development.

Other application development enhancements include improvements to the free Mobile Application Builder tool for both Palm OS and Java application development. Significant investment to enable DB2 Everyplace as a datasource and integrate mobile development in WebSphere Studio-based development environments also improves with a new release of the DB2 Everyplace plug-in for WebSphere Studio.

No matter which DB2 Everyplace offering meets your enterprise mobility on demand requirements, each edition comes with the free DB2 Everyplace Software Development Kit (SDK) to enable easy application development using industry-standard tools and open APIs. V8.1.4 supports Microsoft Server 2003 APIs and tight integration with WebSphere Studio Device Developer Edition.

The DB2 Everyplace Software Development Kit (SDK) is included as part of DB2 Universal Developer's Edition and is also available free for download from the DB2 Everyplace Web site at:

DB2 Everyplace is also part of IBM's pervasive computing software portfolio, which delivers a broad set of mobile software features beyond database synchronization. WebSphere Everyplace Access includes the DB2 Everyplace product, and adds additional features such as server-based synchronization of e-mail and calendar data, offline Web content, notification and location services, and a rich set of tools for developing mobile applications and accessing core order entry, field service, repair, inventory, insurance claims processing, and supply chain systems.

Mobility on demand feature

DB2 UDB customers can easily extend their solutions to include mobile data by leveraging the new mobility on demand capability available with DB2 UDB V8.1 fixpack 4. The mobility on demand capability includes the high-performance, robust DB2 Everyplace database as well as a powerful synchronization solution for use with existing DB2 UDB deployments.

Existing customers of DB2 UDB Express Edition, DB2 UDB Workgroup Server Edition, DB2 UDB Workgroup Server Unlimited Edition, DB2 UDB Enterprise Server Edition, and DB2 Universal Developer's Edition as well as Business Partners can download the mobility on demand feature directly from the DB2 Everyplace Web site. To download, simply go to:

  • Choose the language
  • Continue through the registration process
  • Download the mobility on demand feature

DB2 UDB Express Edition

DB2 UDB Express Edition, the newest member of the DB2 UDB product family, offers flexible licensing options to meet your needs. The new processor-based deployment option (CPU Option) is designed for SMBs with Internet users or enough named users to make the processor-based licensing model more attractive. The existing named user deployment model is authorized for use by intranet users only.

DB2 UDB Express Edition is the lowest-priced full-function relational database. It features the self-tuning Optimizer, the self-configuring Configuration Advisor, and the self-managing Health Center, which increase reliability while reducing complexity and required skills. Available on Linux and Microsoft Windows platforms, it supports easy integration through a full range of APIs including Java and .NET, and is fully compatible with other versions of the scalable DB2 UDB family. DB2 UDB Express is configurable by customers for transparent installation within their application and is designed to reduce the total costs of ownership for SMBs.

DB2 Everyplace Express V8.1.4 license terms

This product is licensed for installation on a single server. You must acquire a separate user license for each named user of the product as described below.

Use-based charges — Named users

A named user is a person, application, or device entitled to establish one or more connections to any authorized server installation of a DB2 Everyplace Express Edition product in the customer's enterprise, either directly or through a multiplexing program or application server. You must acquire a separate user license for each named user of the product. DB2 Everyplace User entitlements are not transferable between products.

Resource restriction

The following restrictions apply to the program:

  • Use of this program is restricted to servers with up to two processors per server.
  • Connections made to this product through the intranet (connections from within your Enterprise) or the Internet (connections outside your enterprise) must be counted as DB2 Everyplace users.

Failover licensing-users

In idle standby or active standby, you must acquire correct number of server installs and the correct number of users:

  • In idle standby, you must license the program for one server install. No additional user entitlements need to be acquired in the idle standby server. An idle standby server has a DB2 Everyplace Sync Server database installed on it, but DB2 Everyplace Sync Server is not processing any end-user transactions or synchronizations query workloads. The DB2 Everyplace Sync Server is considered "idle" if it is used exclusively for administrative actions that assist in failover scenarios.
  • In active standby, you must license the program in the active standby server for one server install and the number of users accessing the server before the failover. During the failover, the user licenses on the failed server are transferred to the active standby. For example, if the active server is licensed for 50 users and the standby server is licensed for 80 users, after failover, the active standby server is licensed for 130 users. An active standby server has an independent, operational DB2 Everyplace Sync Server that services user transactions and synchronizations. Because the active standby machine is used for user transactions and synchronization before or after a failure, it must be fully licensed. In active standby, you must license the program for the number of processors on the active standby server. For example, if the standby machine has four processors then you must obtain four processor entitlements.

Usage restriction — Development use

If a program is acquired through DB2 Personal Developer's Edition, then this program is licensed for installation and use by an individual user on a single machine within your enterprise. You may only use the program for the purposes of evaluating, demonstrating, testing, and developing application programs.

If a program is acquired through DB2 Universal Developer's Edition, it can be installed on a shared server for use by all users with valid DB2 UDE licenses. You may only use the program for the purposes of evaluating, demonstrating, testing, and developing application programs.

Usage restriction — Limited platform support

If the program is acquired under the terms of an IBM offering for limited platform support (that is, the program is acquired for use on a single platform or less than all available platforms), then that program is licensed only for installation and use on the specific platforms or operating systems as designated by the offering terms and conditions.

Program components

The program contains components which are provided to support your authorized use of the program on server machines within your enterprise. If you want to perform multiple installations or distribution of these components, you must contact IBM or your software reseller to obtain the appropriate licenses. The following are the exceptions:

  • The program may be accompanied by an embedded version of WebSphere Application Server — Express ("embedded Application Server — Express"). Your use of the embedded Application Server — Express components is limited to use in support of your licensed use of the program. The embedded Application Server — Express components may not be used for any other purpose. All users must abide by the terms of the embedded Application Server — Express.
  • DB2 Components: The program includes portions of DB2 UDB Express. You are authorized to install and use these components only in association with your licensed use of the DB2 Everyplace Sync Server component of the program for the storage and management of data used or generated by DB2 Everyplace Sync Server, and not for other data management purposes. For example, this license does not permit inbound connections to the DB2 components from other applications for queries or report generation. You are authorized to install and use these components only with and on the same machine as the DB2 Everyplace Sync Server component of the program.

DB2 Everyplace Enterprise Edition V8.1.4 license terms

The program includes one processor entitlement.

Use-based charges — Resources

Charges for this program are based on the processors that are attached or available to the DB2 Server on which it is licensed. The total number of processors attached or available may not exceed the number authorized by the applicable PoE or authorized by each product authorization acquired under Passport Advantage. If the total number exceeds the quantity in your PoE or exceeds your product authorizations acquired under Passport Advantage, you must notify IBM or its reseller as stated in the IPLA.

Usage restriction — Development use

If a program is acquired through DB2 Personal Developer's Edition, then this program is licensed for installation and use by an individual user on a single machine within your enterprise. You may only use the program for the purposes of evaluating, demonstrating, testing, and developing application programs.

If a program is acquired through DB2 Universal Developer's Edition, it can be installed on a shared server for use by all users with valid DB2 UDE licenses. You may only use the program for the purposes of evaluating, demonstrating, testing, and developing application programs.

Usage restriction — Limited platform support

If the program is acquired under the terms of an IBM offering for limited platform support (that is, the program is acquired for use on a single platform or less than all available platforms), then that program is licensed only for installation and use on the specific platforms or operating systems as designated by the offering terms and conditions.

High availability/failover licensing

In idle standby or active standby, you must acquire correct number of processors:

  • An idle standby server has a DB2 database installed on it, but DB2 is not processing any end-user transactions or query workloads. The DB2 server is considered "idle" if it is used exclusively for administrative actions that assist in failover scenarios, such as having a database in rollforward pending state to support log shipping, or in making a flash copy of a DB2 database and then performing a database backup of this copy on another server. In idle standby, you must license the program for one processor.
  • An active standby server has an independent, operational DB2 database that services user transactions and queries. Because the active standby machine is used for user transactions and queries before or after a failure, it must be fully licensed. In active standby, you must license the program for the number of processors on the active standby server. For example, if the standby machine has four processors then you must obtain four processor entitlements.

Program components

The program contains components which are provided to support your authorized use of the program on server machines within your enterprise. If you want to perform multiple installations or distribution of these components, you must contact IBM or your software reseller to obtain the appropriate licenses. The following are the exceptions:

  • DB2 Everyplace Clients. Multiple DB2 Everyplace Clients are provided with this program. You may make copies of these clients and documentation in support of your authorized use of the program within your enterprise.
  • The program may be accompanied by an embedded version of WebSphere Application Server ("embedded Application Server"). Your use of the embedded Application Server components is limited to use in support of your licensed use of the program. The embedded Application Server components may not be used for any other purpose. All users must abide by the terms of the embedded Application Server.
  • DB2 Components: The program includes portions of DB2 Universal Database, including, but not limited to, a DB2 Connect component. You are authorized to install and use these components only in association with your licensed use of the DB2 Everyplace Sync Server component of the program for the storage and management of data used or generated by DB2 Everyplace Sync Server, and not for other data management purposes. For example, this license does not permit inbound connections to the DB2 components from other applications for queries or report generation. Further, use of the DB2 Connect component is limited to five registered users per server, allowing connectivity, only in support of the storage and management of data used or generated by DB2 ESS, to DB2 for z/OS® and OS/390, DB2 Server for VSE and VM, and DB2 for iSeries. If additional users need to connect to any of the above mentioned database servers, a separate DB2 Connect program must be acquired. You are authorized to install and use these DB2 components only with and on the same machine as the DB2 Everyplace Sync Server component of the program.

DB2 Everyplace Database Edition V8.1.4 license terms

Usage restriction — Development use

If a program is acquired through DB2 Personal Developer's Edition, then this program is licensed for installation and use by an individual user on a single machine within your enterprise. You may only use the program for the purposes of evaluating, demonstrating, testing, and developing application programs.

If a program is acquired through DB2 Universal Developer's Edition, it can be installed on a shared server for use by all users with valid DB2 UDB licenses. You may only use the program for the purposes of evaluating, demonstrating, testing, and developing application programs.

Usage restriction — Limited platform support

If the program is acquired under the terms of an IBM offering for limited platform support (that is, the program is acquired for use on a single platform or less than all available platforms), then that program is licensed only for installation and use on the specific platforms or operating systems as designated by the offering terms and conditions.

DB2 UDB Mobility on Demand

The Mobility on Demand capability is licensed under the terms of the DB2 UDB edition it is obtained with. For example, if a customer is using DB2 UDB Enterprise Edition licensed for two processors, the Mobility on Demand capability can also be run on those two processors with unlimited users. Alternatively if a customer is using DB2 Universal Database Workgroup Edition licensed for one processor with 50 registered users, the Mobility on Demand feature can also be run on the one processor with 50 registered users.

DB2 UDB Express Edition V8.1 license terms

CPU option: This program includes one processor entitlement with unlimited users.

Use-based charges

Charges for this program are based on processors that are attached to the DB2 server. The total number of processors available may not exceed the number authorized by the applicable PoE or authorized for each product authorization acquired under Passport Advantage. If the total number exceeds the quantity identified in your PoE or exceeds your product authorizations acquired under Passport Advantage, you must notify IBM or its reseller as stated in the IPLA.

Resource restriction

The following restrictions apply to the program:

  • Use of this program is restricted to servers with up to two processors per server.
  • Use of the Connection Concentrator is not permitted.

High availability/failover licensing-users

In idle standby or active standby, you must acquire the correct number of processors: In idle standby, you must license the program for one processor. In active standby, you must license the program for the number of processors on the active standby server.

An active standby server has an independent, operational DB2 database that services user transactions and queries. Because the active standby machine is used for user transactions and queries before or after a failure, it must be fully licensed.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer®. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service 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. Using 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 system to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic customer-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
