DESCRIPTION
       Installation tools support installing an individually selected
mixture of Communications Manager and Database Manager functions.
The installation tools feature full-screen, interactive, installation
menus with online helps.  Once the chosen mixture is installed on the
fixed disk, program segments are loaded into memory as required to
perform the functions.  All the facilities of IBM OS/2 Standard
Edition Version 1.0 are available in IBM OS/2 Extended Edition
Version 1.0.
       The Communications Manager provides communications services
for applications written for the OS/2 protect mode environment
between IBM personal computer and IBM Personal System/2 and host
systems.  These services provide communication to personal computers
and systems over a wide range of local and remote connectivities
including SDLC, Distributed Function Terminal (DFT) mode to an IBM
3174 or 3274 and asynchronous links.  These connectivities utilize
LU6.2, 3270 data stream (LU2), and asynchronous protocols.  Emulation
for multiple terminal types operating concurrently is provided.  File
transfer and a keyboard remap facility are supported.  Several
programming interfaces (PIs) allow programs to take advantage of the
power of the IBM personal computers and IBM Personal System/2 and to
facilitate programmer productivity in applications development.
       The Database Manager, operating in an OS/2 protect mode
environment, supports the relational data model, consistent with IBM
DB2 and IBM SQL/DS.  The Database Manager makes extensive use of IBM
database technology used in SQL/DS and DB2 host products; in
particular, the Database Manager is designed to preserve database
consistency, integrity, and performance.  Data definition, retrieval,
update and control applications are supported by the Structured Query
Language (SQL).  End-user facilities are available for data entry,
data edit, query and report writing.  The user interfaces for data
entry and data retrieval operations can be tailored to the end user's
requirements without the need for programming using the Query
Manager's support for customized panels and menus.
       The Database Manager supports the relational model of data, in
which data is externally structured in the form of simple and easy to
understand tables.  Data is organized in rows (records) and columns
(fields).  The user defines and accesses data in terms of tables and
operations on these tables.  This simple data format, along with
high-level application creation tools, means that the user (and the
application programmer) does not have to understand complex physical
data structures and access methods.  Implementation of the relational
model is designed to provide application program portability and
ease-of-use characteristics for database design, creation and access.
       The SQL supported by the Database Manager is the OS/2
participant of the Database Interface element of the IBM SAA.  SQL is
a powerful, high-level data definition and manipulation language in
which users specify what they want to do, not how to do it.  SQL is
used for data definition, retrieval, insertion, deletion and
updating.  SQL supports arithmetic operations on retrieved values.
The query functions support selective retrieval from single or
multiple tables and dynamic sorting of the set of resulting rows.
Built-in functions include summation, grouping, ordering and basic
statistics (for example, calculate an average of the values in a
column).  SQL statements can be entered interactively or embedded in
an IBM C/2 source application program.  A precompiler processes the
source program to prepare embedded SQL statements for subsequent
application program compilation and execution.
       The Query Manager component of the Database Manager provides
end user facilities for database definition, query, update and report
preparation.  A prompted interface is provided.  It is designed to
give easy-to-use access to the database for users with little or no
data processing experience.  This interface supports Data Definition,
Data Entry/Edit, Query and Report functions.  The Query and Report
functions are extensive subsets of those in the IBM Query Management
Facility (QMF) on IBM host systems.  Experienced users are provided a
command interface and tools to develop complete database
entry/retrieval facilities customized for the end user.
       IBM OS/2 is a participant in IBM SAA, a collection of selected
software interfaces, conventions, and protocols for which initial
specifications have been published.  IBM SAA is to be the framework
for development of consistent applications across the future
offerings of the major IBM computing environments -- System/370,
AS/400 (TM) System/3X, and the IBM personal computers.  IBM SAA
consists of four related elements, two of which are new (Common User
Access and Common Programming Interface), plus extensions to today's
existing communication architectures (Common Communications Support).
IBM SAA establishes the basis for Common Applications developed by
IBM to be consistent across IBM systems.  Details about the functions
described in the preceding paragraphs are documented in the manuals
now available.
       IBM is providing service and limited warranty for OS/2
Extended Edition.  In addition to the media warranty, IBM is
providing a three-month program warranty, from date of delivery, that
includes replacement, correction or refund.  Central service,
including an IBM Support Center, will be available until the service
expiration date of July 29, 1989.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE FOR FAMILY APPLICATIONS:  The application
developer can write a family application portable from OS/2 to Disk
Operating System (DOS).  A family application is an executable module
that can run in all three environments: an OS/2 protect mode that
runs OS/2 applications, an OS/2 mode that runs a DOS application, or
the DOS Version 3.3 environment.  A family application has the same
or similar capabilities as a DOS Version 3.3 application and cannot
use the new IBM OS/2 capabilities, such as larger memory
addressability and multitasking.  Assuming there is sufficient
memory, display, and other appropriate hardware, a family application
can run on the following system units:
o   Any system unit supported by IBM OS/2
o   Other system units
    -   IBM Personal Computer XT:  All models
    -   IBM Personal Computer
    -   IBM PC Convertible
    -   IBM Portable Personal Computer (withdrawn from marketing)
    -   IBM Personal System/2 (Model 30).

LIMITATIONS
GENERAL:
o   System capacity
           Users needing large data bases, large numbers of programs
    and files, or execution of several concurrent applications
    (requires segment swap areas) should assure they have the
    capability to expand their hardfile above 20Mb, and their memory
    above 3.0Mb.  For additional information, refer to the IBM
    Operating System/2 Information and Planning Guide (G360-2650) and
    the PERFORMANCE section of this announcement.
o   Base operating system family API
           The family API does not include Communications Manager or
    Database Manager functions.
           The Communications Manager must be installed on C: drive
    only.
IBM OS/2 EXTENDED EDITION VERSION 1.0 COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER:
o   Line speeds
           Line speeds may be configured up to 9600 bps for either
    ASCII terminal emulation, or for programs written to the
    Asynchronous Communications Device Interface (ACDI).  However,
    line speed configurability does not guarantee error-free
    operation under all system loading conditions.  Line speeds
    slower than the maximum rate may be required for asynchronous
    communications links.
           Data transmitted from a personal computer running IBM OS/2
    Extended Edition Version 1.0 can operate at a maximum rate if not
    limited by such factors as the modem speed on a switched line.
    Data received to the personal computer running IBM OS/2 Extended
    Edition Version 1.0 may have to operate at less than the maximum
    rate in order to avoid hardware input buffer overrun errors.  The
    achievable rate depends on other processes in the personal
    computer, such as disk activity and operator keying activity.
    The errors on received data are the result of a line speed
    selection that is too high for the particular IBM OS/2 Extended
    Edition Version 1.0 system configuration and loading activity.
    Errors are reported to the operator of ASCII terminal emulation,
    or are reported through the ACDI to the application program.  If
    errors are received, a slower line speed must be selected.
           A multitasking example is a user of an ASCII terminal
    emulation session receiving data using the data capture operation
    while at the same time keying in another partition, for example
    using a text editor.  This OS/2 protect mode only system
    including a single asynchronous port, receiving data, with disk
    activity and keying activity will typically run at 2400 bits per
    second.
           A second multitasking example similar to the one just
    described, except that the keying activity is done in an IBM DOS
    compatibility mode, would typically run at 1200 bps.
           SDLC supports an aggregate line speed of 19,200 bps.
COMMUNICATIONS CONCURRENCY:
o   A maximum of one IBM 3270 Connection (DFT) adapter per IBM
    Personal System/2
o   An SDLC adapter cannot be used concurrently with an asynchronous
    adapter on the IBM Personal Computer AT or the IBM Personal
    Computer XT Model 286.
o   A maximum of one SDLC adapter (IBM Personal Computer XT Model
    286, IBM Personal Computer AT)
o   A maximum of two IBM Personal System/2 Multiprotocol Adapters
    (initialized for SDLC) per IBM Personal System/2
o   One asynchronous emulation session may be used at one time using
    the Communications Manager's IBM 3101 or a DEC VT100 terminal
    emulators.  However, its use may be concurrent with other
    non-asynchronous emulators.
ASYNCHRONOUS COMMUNICATIONS:
o   Asynchronous emulation does not support different receive and
    transmit speeds.
o   Half-duplex modems and attachments are not supported.
o   The CCITT Version 25bis recommendations are supported as
    implemented in IBM OS/2 Extended Edition Version 1.0.
IBM 3101 EMULATION:  The Communications Manager supports emulation of

       In addition to the previously mentioned restrictions, when
using DFT communications attachment, the following features and
capabilities of the IBM 3274/3174 control units are not supported:
o   Data base operations
o   IBM 3270 diagnostic reset dump
o   Dump facility
o   Patch facility.
       Other:
o   Code page switching is accomplished through base operating system
    services.
PERFORMANCE CONSIDERATIONS:  IBM OS/2 Extended Edition Version 1.0
has been designed with two main performance goals.  The first goal
pertains to the performance of multiple tasks.  In this case,
performance is measured in terms of productivity, which is the
ability to perform multiple concurrent tasks and move among them,

while maintaining responsiveness.  The second goal pertains to the
performance or responsiveness of specific tasks.  Here, the
performance is measured as the elapsed time between the pressing of a
key and being able to perform the next operation.
MULTIPLE TASK PERFORMANCE::  IBM OS/2 Extended Edition Version 1.0
multiple concurrent application performance depends on available
system resources such as:
o   Physical memory size
o   Number of concurrently executing programs
o   System priorities and timeslice designations
o   File placement of system/application data.
       Performance is also affected by the segment swapping
characteristics, storage reference patterns, and the characteristics
of the particular data being processed.  In general, users should
expect that elapsed time on a series of concurrent applications
should be less than the sum of the individual component times under
similar operating environments.
       However, users will notice some degradation of specific task
performance when running several applications concurrently.  The user
will generally notice degradation to the current foreground (on the
screen) task when running multiple concurrent applications.
SPECIFIC TASK PERFORMANCE:  When using the Communications Manager of
IBM OS/2 Extended Edition Version 1.0, users will typically find that
the performance of the 3270 communications facility is comparable to
that of IBM 3270 Workstation Program Version 1.1.  Users will also
find that when running APPC applications with IBM OS/2 Extended
Edition Version 1.0 over an SDLC line, that the performance is
characterized by the SDLC line speed.  Asynchronous communications
performance will be primarily dictated by the Asynchronous line
speed.  IBM OS/2 Extended Edition Version 1.0 allows users to perform
a foreground task with minimal performance degradation, while
communications tasks execute concurrently in the background.
       It is important to note that with communications facilities,
many factors affect performance.  In many cases these factors are not
part of the IBM OS/2 Extended Edition Version 1.0 system.  Examples
include, but are not limited to:
o   Line speed
o   Host delay
o   Network delay
o   Communications parameters.
       Performance considerations of the Database Manager can be
found in the IBM Operating System/2 Information and Planning Guide
(G360-2650).
       The wide range of function provided by IBM OS/2 Extended
Edition Version 1.0 requires planning to assure that sufficient
memory and hardfile resources are available for balanced performance.
The following worksheets are designed to aid in estimating the
hardware configuration.
       The first worksheet provides suggested steps to estimate the
memory for major IBM OS/2 Extended Edition Version 1.0 function.  The
second worksheet provides the steps necessary to estimate hardfile
size for major IBM OS/2 Extended Edition Version 1.0 function.
       The memory estimates given are for the concurrent operation of
the customer selected IBM OS/2 Extended Edition Version 1.0 tasks and
are designed to provide a balance between performance and memory.
All estimates are additive.  By following the worksheet format and
adding your applications and user data requirements, memory and
hardfile estimates can be determined.
       Customers assume responsibility for determining and installing
the proper memory and hardfile capacities in their machines; for the
selection of the program(s) to achieve the intended results; and for
the installation, use and results obtained from the machines and
program(s).  IBM does not warrant or otherwise guarantee any
performance or usability results implied by this data.  Customers
should assure that adequate hardware configuration flexibility exists
to accommodate change, future enhancements, new customer applications
and increased user data requirements.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
LICENSING:  Programs in this announcement are licensed under the
terms and conditions of the IBM Program License Agreement.  A copy of
the agreement is included in the program package.
LIMITED WARRANTY:  Program:  Yes.  Media:  Three months.
       Additional Licenses:  Yes.  Media:  Not applicable.
PROGRAM SERVICES:  Central Service will be provided to customers via
a registered service coordinator.  The service coordinator will be
designated at the time of acquisition as an assigned member of the
customer staff and registered by IBM's North Central Marketing
Division or South West Marketing Division or the Authorized Dealer.
Any questions regarding the registration of service coordinators
should be directed to the place of acquisition.
       The registered service coordinator is the first level of
customer assistance.
       Refer to the product documentation for information about
reporting suspected defects to the registered service coordinator.
       The registered service coordinator is responsible for
assisting the customer with:
o   Determining whether a problem has been caused by hardware or
    software
o   Identifying which software being used is causing the problem
o   Reporting suspected defects of IBM software to IBM
o   Assisting the customer in applying preventive and corrective
    service, and
o   Performing other activities recommended by IBM support
    organization(s) to define and/or resolve the problem.
       IBM Central Service will respond, upon request from a
registered service coordinator, to a defect in the unaltered portion
of a supported release of the licensed program by issuing:

corrective service information such as correction documentation,
corrected code, notice of availability of corrected code, a
restriction or a bypass as determined by IBM.  This defect support is
only applicable if the defect is found to occur in the operating
environment in which the product was intended to be used.
       The IBM Support Center will provide the registered Service
Coordinator with telephone assistance in problem diagnosis and
resolution.  The registered service coordinator may call the IBM
Support Center at any time and will receive a return call within
eight (8) business hours (Monday -- Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
local customer time).
       In addition, and as an alternative, registered service
coordinators who have asynchronous communications capability will be
provided access to an online database which will provide information
about known defects, if any, and the ability to report suspected
problems electronically.  The online database is available 24 hours a
day, seven days a week.
       One copy of the Problem Determination Guide for the Service
Coordinator (S90X-7946) and the ServiceLine diskette will be ordered
at registration by IBM for each service coordinator registered.  A
charge applies for ordering additional copies of the problem
determination guide for the service coordinator, or for ordering it
for those who are not service coordinators.  The following
ServiceLine diskettes are available from Mechanicsburg:
o   ZV38-0350 ServiceLine Access Diskette (5.25-inch)
o   ZV38-0351 ServiceLine Access Diskette (3.5-inch)
       Central Service, including the IBM Support Center, will be
available until July 29, 1989.  The statement of service included in
the program package describes this service.
