Top rule
Withdrawn programs
Bottom rule

Effective April 12, 2016, IBM® will withdraw from marketing several programs licensed under the IBM International Program License Agreement. The programs being withdrawn are multi-product bundles. With one exception, entitlements to the bundles will be replaced by entitlements to individual products that were included in the bundles or that otherwise provide identical functional capabilities.

The new license, trade-up, and reinstatement part numbers for these offerings will be withdrawn April 12, 2016. Renewal part numbers will be withdrawn May 13, 2016.

End of Service for the bundle offerings will occur at a later date. At that time, owners of the bundles will become entitled to the individual products that comprised those bundles and will inherit the service lifecycles of those individual products.

IBM Rational® Professional Bundle

At the time of withdrawal, entitlements to the bundle will be migrated to each of the following offerings (with the same charge metric, either "Authorized User" or "Floating User Single Install").

  • IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere® Software
  • IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager
  • IBM Rational Functional Tester
  • Rational Performance Tester
  • IBM Rational Service Tester for SOA Quality

IBM WebSphere Application Server Tools Edition

At the time of withdrawal, entitlements to the bundle will be migrated to the following replacement entitlements.

  • IBM WebSphere Application Server, at the rate of 1 PVU per 1 PVU of the bundle
  • IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software, at the rate of 1 Authorized User per 50 PVUs of the bundle

For some owners of the bundle, the 1 AU per 50 PVU formula for Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software (RAD) entitlements may include more user licenses than are needed. In such cases, the client may choose not to renew S&S for any excess quantities of RAD.

IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment Tools Edition

When this offering is withdrawn, bundle entitlements will be migrated to the following replacement entitlements.

  • IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, at the rate of 1 PVU per 1 PVU of the bundle
  • IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software, at the rate of 1 Authorized User per 50 PVUs of the bundle

For some owners of the bundle, the 1 AU per 50 PVU formula for Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software (RAD) entitlements may include more user licenses than are needed. In such cases, the client may choose not renew S&S for any excess quantities of RAD.

IBM WebSphere Application Server for Developers Tools Edition

At the time of withdrawal, entitlements will not be migrated because individually, both of the included products are available as free downloads that are limited by the License Agreements to development and local use only. The purpose of this bundle was to offer IBM Client Support to users of older version levels of those free restricted-use offerings. With the withdrawal of this bundle, the following options will allow you can maintain coverage of IBM Client Support for your development tools and test servers.

  • Use WebSphere Application Server (WAS) at version level 8.5, or later, as your production runtime. The terms of the WAS License Agreements at version levels 8.5 and above provide for the following:
    • You may deploy unlimited numbers of WAS (8.5 or later) instances for use as developers' local test environments. This usage will be on a fully supported basis and will not count as utilization against your production PVU licenses as long as S&S is up to date.
    • Similarly, the freely downloadable WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse is treated as an IBM-supported offering for clients who own WAS production licenses and use version level 8.5, or later as long as S&S is up to date.
  • If you must use older WAS versions (whose License Agreements do not make those provisions), you can purchase IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software instead of using WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse. This is a much more extensive set of fully supported development tools, and includes fully functional local test servers as fully supported parts of the product.

Otherwise, you can use the combination of WebSphere Application Server for Developers (at pre-8.5 version levels) and WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse, on an unsupported basis

Effective on the dates shown, IBM will withdraw from marketing part numbers from the following programs licensed under the IBM International Program License Agreement.
