By combining PHP with a Groovy and Java-based runtime environment, developers can compose applications and services that draw upon assets from both the Java and PHP communities. IBM Business Partners and clients can use the best of both worlds. WebSphere sMash V1.1.0 enhances sMash PHP support, including performance improvements, additional PHP functions supported, and support for additional PHP scripts.
  • WebSphere sMash also features easy-to-build RESTful applications. Application programming interfaces are optimized for producing REST-style services, iWidgets for mashups, and rich Web interfaces.

Simplified deployment of applications:

  • The lightweight foundation of WebSphere sMash is based on a "run and done" model in which the application acts as the server. WebSphere sMash allows developers to rapidly create and assemble services, data sources, and application functions and deploy with greater agility.
  • WebSphere sMash V1.1.0 applications can be more easily deployed within Microsoft® IT environments with added support for Microsoft Windows 2008, Windows XP Professional, Microsoft Active Directory, and better accessibility to data that resides in Microsoft data sources such as Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, and SQL Server 2005.
  • Another feature of this solution is its API for connections. This interface allows applications to connect to other resources through a number of protocols, including Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) or HTTPS, Java Message Service (JMS), and file (s/FTP client) and e-mail (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)), Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) client).

Increased client satisfaction and line-of-business productivity by streamlining user interaction with Web-based applications:

  • WebSphere sMash supports Web 2.0 architectures and protocols, including REST and Atom for the service invocation model, JSON and XML for the data interchange format, and Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) for the rich client model.
  • This solution also features a supported AJAX development toolkit (Dojo Toolkit) for enablement of rich user experiences without requiring additional browser plug-ins. WebSphere sMash provides a visual editor for user interface (UI) design in which you can drag and drop Dojo artifacts.
  • Data access is provided through a layer of abstraction between the actual data store and REST. Inline structured query language (SQL) capabilities come directly from scripts, allowing straight SQL while simplifying common query patterns.
  • And when it comes to security, WebSphere sMash has capabilities for authentication and for authorization by users, groups, and roles, as well as support for OpenID. Active Content Filtering (ACF) allows for validation of inbound request parameters, in addition to inbound and outbound JSON messages, to detect and remove malicious active content such as JavaScript.
  • Access to a growing online development community.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology, defined within the PVU Table by Processor Vendor, Brand, Type and Model Number at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html
and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

The Licensee can deploy the program using either Full Capacity licensing or Virtualization Capacity (Sub-Capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to Web site below). If using Full Capacity licensing, the Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores1 in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, the Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_ licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

1 An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Client device

Client device is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A client device is a computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server or is otherwise managed by the server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to appliances, automated teller machines, cash registers, disk drive, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistant, point-of-sale terminals, tape drive, and technical workstations. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every client device which runs, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the program and for every other computer or server on which the program is installed.

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

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

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 five 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.
