WebSphere® Message Broker V8 makes available WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus Transfer License, a cost-effective licensing option for clients who only require a subset of enterprise service bus (ESB) capability in a fully scalable deployment.
New with this announcement
The WebSphere Message Broker Transfer License for WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus enables you to exchange some or all of your WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus license entitlements for WebSphere Message Broker license entitlements.
Following the license transfer, your entitlement to use WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus will be reduced or cease. This reflects the WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus license entitlements being relinquished during the exchange.
In addition, the exchange will be documented contractually on terms and conditions. As one of several conditions, you agree, with effect from the date of the exchange, promptly to destroy all copies of the WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus program that are replaced by license entitlements to WebSphere Message Broker.
WebSphere Message Broker Transfer License for WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus licensees are entitled to a new mode of operation for WebSphere Message Broker. This provides comparable functionality and performance to that available in WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus. This mode of operation is only available by the application of APAR IC88466 on top of WebSphere Message Broker V188.8.131.52. The APAR must be applied in order to access the appropriate mode. The V184.108.40.206 Fix Pack and APAR IC88466 can be downloaded from the IBM® Support website
The V220.127.116.11 Fix Pack may be used to upgrade any WebSphere Message Broker V8 installation.
WebSphere Message Broker packages WebSphere Adapters for SAP Software, Siebel Business Applications, PeopleSoft Enterprise, and JD Edwards Enterprise One. Following the license transfer from WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, use of these adapters with WebSphere Message Broker is limited to development and functional testing only. Any production use of the adapters remains separately chargeable.
Software Announcement 212-233, dated June 12, 2012, does not apply to the WebSphere Message Broker Transfer License for WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus.

PID Charge unit Program name number description IBM WebSphere Message Broker V8.0 5724-J05 Processor Value Unit
Processor Value Unit (PVU)
PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at
Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below).If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at
* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program.

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program.

|Statement of good security practices|
IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
