Support for additional desktop operating system distributions is also added. Refer to each detailed product system requirements report using the Software Product Compatibility Reports tool at

http://www-969.ibm.com/software/reports/compatibility/clarity/index.html

Capabilities that are deprecated:

Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software

Tool support for Struts 1.1 runtime. The Apache Struts v1.1 runtime reached end of life (as an OSS distribution) as of April 23, 2013, and as a web development framework this leaves high risk of security vulnerabilities being discovered that will not be fixed by the community. Guidance from the Apache Struts community can be found at

http://struts.apache.org/struts1eol-announcement.html

As alternatives to Struts 1.1, consider using:

  • Universal Test Client (for testing legacy EJB 1.x and 2.x)
  • Table and Datasource Creator
  • Apache Tiles
  • The legacy preference management capabilities provided by the workspacePreferenceGet, workspacePreferenceSet, and workspacePreferenceFile Ant tasks. Replacement: always use the Eclipse preference store management.
  • The antImportProjectSet' provider type for the projectSetImport Ant task. Replacement: Use your Source Code Management (SCM) provider type, such as CVS or Git.
  • The USERID and PASSWORD attributes for the projectSetImport Ant task. Replacement: define an authentication child element to the task for each repository that requires username and password credentials.

Rational Developer for System z

  • Creation of new COBOL and PL/I DB2® Stored Procedures. Replacement: do this through SQL or Java
  • Push to Host
  • Offline Projects

All IDEs

  • Support for installing into an existing non-IBM Eclipse instance. Note: Installation into an existing IBM Package Group, which is the process used to install multiple IBM products into the same Eclipse instance, which is sometimes called "shell sharing") is not deprecated
  • Tool support for IBM Workload Deployer and IBM PureApplication® System.
  • Test component (for unit test reporting) in TPTP.

Capabilities that are removed in Rational Developer for System z include:

  • TxSeries 7.1 is no longer be included as part of Rational Developer for System z physical packaging .

Note: Some of these products may include, as part of their bills of materials (installable images), third-party open source software components that owners of the products commonly use in combination with the products. This is done purely as a convenience to the customer. These components are provided "as is" and IBM does not assume any responsibility for technical support of these components. Technical support of these components is the responsibility of the open source software communities that produce them. Customers are responsible to seek technical support directly from those communities.

Also, such third-party components might not conform to IBM internal standards for software accessibility and internationalization (for example, such components might be English-only). To the extent that IBM provides internally produced software that implements specific points of integration with such third-party components, or software that provides support for installing such third-party components, IBM does assume responsibility for technical support of the integration and/or installation software. At this time, in the products that are the subject of this Announcement, these third-party components are included "as is" in the products' bills of material:

  • (Eclipse) eGit (updated to eGit 3.4.1 in this delivery)
  • (Apache) Cordova (updated to Cordova 3.5.0 in this delivery)
  • Eclipse Marketplace Client
  • Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

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.
