Description

WebSphere Adapters V6.1 on WebSphere Application Server connect packaged enterprise business applications from key independent software vendors with Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) applications designed to run on WebSphere Application Server. Manual coding of custom interfaces and ongoing maintenance can easily become a bottleneck impacting the delivery of new business requirements. WebSphere adapters allow new application code to focus on the business logic, and submit transaction requests to adapters using business objects. WebSphere adapters deliver graphical browsing and generation of adapter interfaces, with support from a tooling wizard that connects to third-party applications from the application server development environment to generate the business object definitions.

WebSphere Adapters V6.1 on WebSphere Application Server provide outbound connectivity or communication from business applications residing in WebSphere Application Server to enterprise information systems (for example, SAP).

WebSphere Adapters V6.1 on WebSphere Application Server are:

  • Siebel Business Applications
  • SAP Software
  • Oracle E-Business Suite
  • JD Edwards EnterpriseOne
  • PeopleSoft Enterprise

The program License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Limited warranty: IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Guide for further information at

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer: You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.
