WebSphere® Studio Asset Analyzer V4.2 software requirements on an AIX® operating system.


WebSphere® Studio Asset Analyzer V4.2 (AIX)

This page describes the minimum product levels that need to be installed before opening a problem report with the WebSphere Studio Asset Analyzer Support team. Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, testing every configuration is not possible. In general, you can install and run with updates to supported products if those updates are forward compatible.

WebSphere Studio Asset Analyzer V4.2 requires the following software:

MVS z/OS® V1.3.0 (5694-A01) or later

  1. You must install the optional feature Security Server or an equivalent security product before using WebSphere Studio Asset Analyzer.
  2. IBM® HTTP Server is the base component of z/OS, so you do not need to install it separately, but it must be configured with companion prerequisite software. (HTTP Server support site)


One of the following: (DB2 support site)
  • IBM DB2 UDB for z/OS and OS/390, V7 with PTF UQ96293 (MVS 5675-DB2 )
  • IBM DB2 UDB for z/OS V8.0.1 with PTF UK00265 (MVS 5625-DB2)

  • IBM DB2 Utilities Suite V7.1 - RUNSTATS utility (MVS 5697-E98)
  • IBM DB2 Utilities Suite V8.1 - RUNSTATS utility (MVS 5655-K61)
You must install and configure the JDBC V2.0 application support.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or later

WebSphere Studio Asset Analyzer takes advantage of Adobe technology to render graphics in Scable Vector Grapphics (SVG) format. Currently, the Adobe Web browser plug-in for SVG exists in its most robust form only for Internet Explorer. However, when similar support exists for other Web browsers, the WebShpere Studio Asset Analyzer will extend its support to these other browsers.

WebSphere Studio Asset Analyzer V4.2, configured using WebSphere Application Server on AIX®, requires the following additional software. Note that this software is also needed for the distributed functionality of WebSphere Studio Asset Analyzer on AIX.

AIX AIX 5.1 or later (AIX 5L product site)

DB2® IBM® DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition V7.02 (5648-D42) or V8.1 (5765-F30)
