Description

This Web-to-host offering addresses the full business cycle with industry-leading host access solutions and unmatched flexibility for any environment. IBM Rational HIS gives you a single point of contact, service, and support to help meet your network needs.

IBM Rational HATS V7.1

The IBM Rational HATS Toolkit is a set of plug-ins for the Eclipse-based IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform (Rational SDP). The toolkit lets you develop a new application that generates a GUI for you 3270 and 5250 applications. Develop your new applications a step at a time, previewing and saving each change you make. Over time, or as quickly as desired, your IBM Rational HATS application can be streamlined, making it easier to use than the host applications whose data it presents, and possibly moving functions from the host applications into your IBM Rational HATS applications. Your new application can be accessed from a browser, portlet, rich client, or even a mobile device.

The development process for building IBM Rational HATS applications that are accessed from a browser, portal, rich client, and mobile device is similar. IBM Rational HATS lets you create a GUI suited to your business needs and standards. You can hide unnecessary information, organize data into tables, or display only required input fields. You can provide a drop-down list of valid values for an input field, change the size and location of some of the text, and provide navigation buttons.

After you have developed an IBM Rational HATS application, deploy it to a production environment. The IBM Rational HATS run-time code runs as part of an IBM Rational HATS application deployed in a production run-time environment:

  • WebSphere Application Server
  • WebSphere Portal
  • Rich-client platform

Users interact with the IBM Rational HATS application through the IBM Rational HATS GUI and data is sent back and forth between the user and the host application.

Regardless of the kind of IBM Rational HATS application that you are creating, you may decide that basic customization is enough, but with IBM Rational HATS you can do much more. Examples include:

  • Use IBM Rational HATS macro support to provide streamlined navigation through multiple host screens
  • Take your users directly to the first screen that you want them to use, bypassing other screens
  • Use macros or the screen combination function to combine data from several host screens into one IBM Rational HATS GUI screen
  • Use business logic and global variables to integrate your host applications with other back-end systems in your enterprise, as well as with your business partners' systems
  • From IBM Rational HATS macros, you can generate IBM Rational HATS Integration Objects, which are Java beans that encapsulate interactions with a host application, and use them to create Web pages and Web services. You can also use IBM Rational HATS Integration Objects in Enterprise JavaBeans.

The WebFacing tool is now an optional component of IBM Rational HATS. You can continue to use these tools independently to generate applications that reface 5250 applications.

Both WebFacing and IBM Rational HATS developers can work seamlessly with their existing projects, create new independent project, or create combined projects.

For additional product information IBM Rational HATS, refer to Software Announcement 208-049 , dated March 11, 2008.

Charge metrics definitions

Concurrent user

A concurrent user is one and only one individual within or outside your enterprise. The number of PoEs required is for the highest number of users simultaneously accessing the program or any program components either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Authorized user

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside your enterprise. A PoE must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under an authorized user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

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

Limited warranty applies: Yes

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 Handbook 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 programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer: The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.
