Overview

The new IBM® Rational® Programming Patterns for System z® extension, part of the IBM Rational Developer for System z family of products, opens the doors of the IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform to Pacbase developers. Using a modern, comprehensive and collaborative IDE that extends IBM Rational Developer for System z and IBM Rational Team Concert™, IBM Rational Programming Patterns for System z V8 allows Pacbase developers to maintain their high level of individual productivity, while unifying their development processes and tools with System z and Java™ developers.

IBM Rational Programming Patterns for System z modernizes the Pacbase Model Driven Development (MDD) approach. It extends IBM Rational Developer for System z with new Pacbase compatible models for Data, Texts, Macro-Structures, Batch and Transactional applications with their editors and generators, targeting System z.

IBM Rational Programming Patterns for System z V8 uses IBM Rational Team Concert to share the same software configuration principles, change management, build tools, development process control, and collaborative features between System z, Java and Pacbase developers. This new environment has capabilities that surpass the current Pacbase features, thus improving team productivity and IT governance.

IBM Rational Programming Patterns for System z includes IBM Rational Team Concert integrations creating a central Jazz™ based repository for Pacbase development assets, thereby increasing the productivity of application maintenance with impact analysis and multi-criteria search services as well as classification aids for development assets. This Jazz-based repository is shared with native COBOL developers who use their own impact-analysis services based on their development paradigm.

IBM Rational Programming Patterns for System z offers a low-cost migration, minimizing the amount of regression test needed post-migration. This is achieved by generating COBOL code syntactically equivalent to the code generated by Pacbase, and by providing tools to automate and check the transfer of Pacbase assets in the new IDE.

Charge metrics definitions

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the Program. The Program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the Program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the Program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case the following applies: Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the Program or that is otherwise managed by the Program is considered a separate User of the Program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Floating User

Floating User is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. A Floating User is a person who is accessing the Program at any particular point in time. An Install is an installed copy of the Program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. The Program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, but if the Floating User simultaneously accesses more than one Install of the Program, the Floating User requires a separate entitlement for each such Install. Licensee must obtain separate entitlements for each Floating User simultaneously accessing the Program on each Install in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Note : Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case the following applies: Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the Program or that is otherwise managed by the Program is considered a separate User of the Program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services 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. 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 server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
