Supported Software for CICS Universal Client (CICS UC) v7.0

Flash (Alert)


Abstract

This document lists the IBM and third party software supported for use with the CICS Universal Client (CICS UC) v7.0

Content

This page provides on-line information about the levels of third-party software that run with CICS UC and supersedes information in the relevant announcement letters and Administration Guide.

Minum service levels are listed below where appropriate. Where no specific level is listed, support will be provided for the General Availability (GA) release of the third-party product. CICS UC is not tested with every maintenance level of every product; we generally assume vendors do not cause regressions in their maintenance levels.

Products that do not appear below have not been tested with CICS UC v7.0.

Note: Because interaction between releases of operating systems, software products, and CICS UC is very complex, information on this page can possibly conflict with information that is provided by product vendors. If you notice such an inconsistency or if you experience unanticipated problems, consult your vendor's product support and notify your IBM support representative.

Footnotes can be found directly below the table to which they apply.

For End Of Service information, refer to the Product support lifecycle page.
