Overview

Software architects, senior developers on a development team, and project managers play a pivotal role in bringing technical professionals together. They need a powerful and configurable environment to help them create and maintain the architecture, despite challenges like heterogeneous applications and globally distributed development teams. Other members of the development team need to do their part as they all collaborate-regardless of application complexity and geographic location-to complete and deliver the software project.

IBM Rational® Modeling Extension for Microsoft™ .NET V7.0 software, as hosted by the IBM Rational Software Modeler product or one of its siblings, is a powerful, integrated design and construction environment that helps with understanding, designing, managing, and evolving enterprise solutions and services across the team, across the world, and across different areas of technical expertise. Together, these products provide extensive support for the Object Management Group's (OMG) industry-standard Unified Modeling Language, Version 2.1.1 (UML 2), as well as many powerful domain-specific visual modeling capabilities.

The IBM Rational Modeling Extension for Microsoft .NET product is designed to work with other development tools in a variety of process environments to improve productivity, enhance architectural control, and ease the design-to-code experience across a project portfolio that might include Microsoft .NET / C#, Java™/Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE), Web services, service-oriented architecture (SOA), and (Linux™/Unix/ANSI) C/C++ applications.

UML 2 serves as the common architectural language to bridge all projects regardless of the implementation technologies targeted. The UML 2 modeling capabilities available for use with IBM Rational Modeling Extension for Microsoft .NET software include object diagram support (new in V7) and extended capabilities for modeling activities, composite structures, components, interactions (sequence and communication diagrams) and state machines-in addition provide use-case, class and deployment diagramming capabilities.

Optional migrations and anticipatory access are available. For details, refer to the Description section.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

Rational Modeling Extension for Microsoft .NET is capable as of March 2, 2007, when used in accordance with associated IBM documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it. A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), containing details on the products accessibility compliance, can be requested at

IPLA and subscription and support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single proof of entitlement (PoE). It is your responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Availability of national languages: March 2, 2007

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 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, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund.

Product upgrades and Technical Support are provided by the Software Maintenance offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software and Technical Support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at
