WebSphere Service Registry and Repository V7.5 delivers the following new features and benefits:

  • New and enhanced Business Space widgets simplify the publication and governance of your services and increase visibility.
    • The new Service Registry Navigator widget allows gives users the ability to quickly browse registry content visually, giving a one-upstream and one-downstream view of related content.
    • The Collection View widget is enhanced to allow the creation of new views that you configure with a wizard. You specify a single query or an aggregation of multiple queries to create different Watch Lists, which can appear on your space as separate widgets or in the view menu of a single Collection View widget.
    • The Collection View widget now has an icon mode that enables you to browse the collection result by icons, enabling quicker recognition of the content type for which you are looking.
    • The Service Registry Actions widget now enables you to configure your own actions, allowing your governance process to be more prescriptive for your users.
    • The Details Widgets has many enhancements. You can now use this to configure use visibility of properties for each registry type and to group those properties into custom sections. You can determine which classification taxonomies should be displayed to the user. You can also determine if a property is visible on creation. The visibility of relationships can also be configured, and custom queries can be included as relationships. This allows you to have focused content for each user role.
    • The new Service Registry Graphical Explorer widget gives impact analysis of the registry content in visual form with icons that represent the different types of content that exist in the registry repository. This allows for rapid understanding of all the relationships.
    • The new Activity widget offers an efficient way to keep track of the changes that have been made and those responsible for making the changes.
  • Extensive enhancements have been made in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository's report hosting capabilities. A new reporting servlet enables reports to be hosted in the Business Space Web Site widget, allowing you to quickly view your reports in the context of your WebSphere Service Registry and Repository Business Space. You are also able to view reports outside the context Business Space.
  • The new space templates for Business Space give a preconfigured, roles-based starting point for your governance process. You can use these space templates as is, extend, or modify them to suit your end users' needs.
  • WebSphere Service Registry and Repository V7.5 extends its search capabilities to include full text search with the ability to enhance the precision of the search with such things as conditional terms and ranges.
  • Governance processes are unique to a company's structure and the processes change over time as a company changes. Because of this, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository is flexible and configurable to handle these changes. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository V7.5 has focused on the ease to which companies can tailor their service governance with improvements to WebSphere Service Registry and Repository Studio.
    • The new Access Control Editor in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository Studio makes it easier to define roles and permissions for those roles.

Charge metrics definitions

Authorized User Single Install

Authorized User Single Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. An Install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, but if the Authorized User has accessed or has access to more than one Install of the program, the Authorized User requires a separate entitlement for each such Install. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program on each Install in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

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 Value, 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

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 the website below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* 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, 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

* 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.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program AND what is being managed. In that case, the following applies: In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis ONLY. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies: Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.
  • Express® and Workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies: The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM Express and Middleware Programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.
