IBM Rational Developer for System z with Java helps to increase developer productivity by delivering integrated, high-quality code while working within the organizations development processes, tools, and philosophy.

IBM Rational Developer for System z with Java also helps to make learning the mainframe environment easier for developers new to the platform by offering easily accessible tools and wizards to assist in difficult and complex operations.

Each of the product choices mentioned above includes the same set of System z application development tools previously offered in IBM Rational Developer for System z V7.1 but enhanced with additional new functionality as described below. The core System z application development tools include key capabilities for improving the productivity of your System z application developers, including

CICS, IMS, DB2, Batch, and UNIX System Services development

  • Development and maintenance tools for z/OS (COBOL, PL/I, C, C++, Java, High-Level Assembler) applications and Microsoft Windows (COBOL, PL/I) applications, as well as access to AIX® file systems, z/OS and UNIX System Services file systems, submitting z/OS jobs, monitoring z/OS Job execution queues, and debugging artifacts after access
  • Visually configurable editor and statement assisted creation, and verification of syntax for COBOL, PL/I, C, C++, High-Level Assembler, and Java languages
  • Tooling to develop, test, and deploy Web Services to CICS, and IMS environments

Integrated life-cycle development

  • Tooling to collaborate and share both distributed and System z assets across the team using built-in IBM Rational ClearCase® version control, IBM Software Configuration and Library Management (SCLM) Toolkit, or supplied frameworks for integrating with other source code management systems
  • Access to customized JCL or TSO commands from the workstation to take advantage of existing System z tools in use on the mainframe
  • Ability to browse and update VSAM dataset content on System z using IBM File Manager Integration
  • Integration with IBM Fault Analyzer provides accesses to problem reports for diagnosing mainframe application faults

    • Support Host Access Transformation Services (HATS) development. Note. Customers must purchase independent HATS licenses for deployment
    • Provide integrated, rich client access for Rational Developer for System z licensed developers with TSO/ISPF access through a powerful GUI front-end.

Enterprise Service Tools

Enterprise Service Tools is an integrated perspective that assists a Web Service developer in the following tasks:

  • Creating a CICS Web service that uses a new or existing CICS application as its application component
  • Creating a IMS SOAP Gateway Web service that uses a new or existing IMS application as its application component
  • Creating a Web service that is not runtime-specific from a new or existing application
  • Using the System z Database Application Generator to create a COBOL CICS application that accesses a z/OS DB2 database
  • Developing a comprehensive Web service that collects and processes data from multiple sources, including CICS non-terminal applications, CICS terminal applications, and Web services

Enterprise Service Tools combines capabilities that were formerly available in the XML Services for the enterprise plug-in and in the Service Flow Modeler plug-in. Enterprise Service Tools features an enhanced user interface that increases usability and simplifies the overall service flow development process.

CICS Service Flow Feature

The CICS Service Flow feature allows you to develop a comprehensive Web service that collects and processes data from multiple sources, such as programs, screens, databases, and Web service invokable processing. A specific Service Flow project is included in the Enterprise Service tooling to facilitate service flow creation.

The CICS Service Flow runtime option (included in CICS Service Flow Feature) must be installed to run a Service Flow project in CICS Transaction Server (CICS TS) V3.1 or V3.2. Certain functionality, for example channel and container access, requires Service Flow Runtime V3.2.

The CICS Service Flow feature provides components that extend CICS TS by delivering adapters that exploit CICS interfaces to invoke the CICS terminal-oriented transactions, COMMAREA programs, and Channel programs required by the Web service generated from the service flow project.

The CICS Service Flow Runtime option delivers adapters for access to existing CICS transaction and application interfaces using non-invasive techniques, so that the CICS application assets orchestrated by the service flow do not have to be altered to support the CICS business service flow. This helps enable the fast reuse of existing assets while helping to minimize the risk of the new implementation. If required, the CICS business service can persist state data related to the business service between multiple invocations of the CICS application interfaces.

Where there is a requirement to integrate information from non-CICS applications into the CICS business service, the CICS Service Flow Runtime option delivers a Web services adapter and a WebSphere MQ adapter that enable the CICS business service flow to access any application supporting these interfaces, wherever the application may reside in the enterprise solution architecture.

The base capabilities provided by CICS Transaction Server to access CICS application interfaces extend to capabilities such as:

  • Web services
  • Link3270 Bridge
  • Distributed Program Link (DPL)
  • WebSphere MQ Adapter
  • Front End Programming Interface (FEPI)

The CICS Service Flow Runtime exploits these capabilities when generating the CICS business service function to provide the implementation needed to reuse the existing CICS applications as components in the CICS business service flow.

For more information on the CICS Service Flow Feature, refer to Software announcement 205-303, dated November 22, 2005.

New in V7.5

A host of significant new functions and feature enhancements in V7.5 build on an already comprehensive set of features. They support the following capabilities:

System configuration, performance, and consumability

  • The host code has been re-engineered for scalability, decreasing resource requirements by over 50%. The client installation has been reworked to eliminate many un-needed components resulting in a 50% decrease in typical customer install size. This results in much smaller hardware requirements for users both on and off the host lowering hardware costs for customers.
  • The Host installation and configuration process is simplified to reduce the amount of time taken to install, configure, or upgrade the product after initial purchase.
  • The IBM Rational Developer for System z installation panels have been reworked to allow users to choose just the portions of the package they feel are needed to reduce install size and visual clutter on the developer interface
  • The CARMA SCM integration framework is enhanced to reduce resource needs and increase scalability. The CARMA framework now offers an alternative invocation method which launches the SCM integration as a light-weight process instead of an initiator-based invocation.
  • The File Manager integration host-resource requirements are reduced when used in combination with IBM File Manager V9.1, to allow greater scalability where more users can access data on the host concurrently.

Core z/OS development

  • Manageable property groups of build/syntax check properties can be easily created and applied to separate zOS projects. This simplifies the tedious process of setting up and determining which properties apply to which zOS application projects.
  • We now alternative include syntax in COBOL and PL/I, specifically, the support -INC and ++INCLUDE verbs as if they were copy statements.
  • A new API is included for customers who have developed custom pre-processors. Pre-processors can now be called from a local syntax check operation so that customized development processes can be handled in the local environment as well as the remote environment.
  • The function that allows online zOS project assets to be downloaded when disconnecting from the mainframe has been improved for performance, understandability, and usability.
  • The Show dependencies function now is available from local projects as well as remote projects.
  • The compare view now allows updates to the content being compared. This is an improvement over the read-only compare editor previously offered.
  • New code generation options are included to generate data access logic to structured data in QSAM/VSAM files. This speeds application development by allowing users to focus on business logic programming rather than data access.
  • Several smaller enhancements are added to the COBOL editing environment such as:
    • Support for copy-replace verbs
    • HEX editing support
    • Simplified ISPF command support
    • Visual indicators in the column margin area

Next-generation development environment for COBOL

The COBOL editor has been enhanced to add capabilities such as:

  • Syntax-Check as you type -- This increases productivity by notifying developers immediately when syntax errors occur, eliminating the need for developers to submit syntax check options as often.
  • A refactoring engine offering intelligent wizards to perform code changes, including the ability to preview and approve changes, such as:
    • Data-element renaming. Data-Element renaming saves time and offers better reliability over simplistic find-replace
    • Remove Noise Words -- Cleans the COBOL program syntax to remove un-need and outdated verbs.
  • Editor link-ability that assists with easily finding and jumping to other elements in your applications. For example, while working on a COBOL data item you may click the "open declaration" action to jump to the working storage definition of the item, even opening a copybook in an editor if necessary.
  • New data-rich code analysis views that include searchable displays series of perform statements

COBOL design and development using UML

UML profiles for COBOL applications have been included in the IBM Rational Developer for System z media. UML designers can

  • Use the COBOL profiles in IBM Rational Software Architect to take generic UML class diagrams and activity diagrams and transform them to COBOL-specific application specifications.
  • Feed UML models into IBM Rational Developer for System z where they can be transformed into COBOL programs, copybooks, data definitions, and application logic.

This capability helps speed application design to initial implementation as well as providing application documentation for better communications between teams.

SOA and Web services

Several Enterprise Service Tools usability enhancements have been added to simplify and improve the Web service development experience. The Service Flow modeler has included over a dozen usability enhancements spanning from simplified screen-flow recording to integrated deployment. The single-service wizards have been updated to include first-class meet-in-the-middle support, including new wizards and walkthroughs to help developers with all service development scenarios.

There are also Web service creation enhancements including:

  • Support for Multi-segment messages in IMS Web Services
  • Meet-in-the-middle support for IMS PL/I Web Services
  • Support for multi-dimensional arrays in PL/I web services
  • XML System Service generation options to offload XML processing to zOS specialty processing engines
  • The ability to generate Web Service artifacts directly to remote systems via Remote Systems Explorer

Integrated CICS Explorer and Application Deployment Manager tooling

IBM Rational Developer for System z includes an integrated copy of the CICS Explorer.

The CICS Explorer is enhanced with the IBM Rational Developer for System z Application Deployment Manager (ADM). The CICS Explorer and ADM allow you to query, define, and install needed CICS resources. The combination of CICS Explorer and IBM Rational Developer for System z simplifies the CICS development process by removing or automating several manual steps in the service deployment and testing cycle. The developer no longer has to return to the green screen to define many of the CICS application resources they need for testing. IBM Rational Developer for System z also gives developers the ability, if permitted in the CICS environment, to define and manage their own CICS resource definitions to speed applications development. Combined with the IBM Rational Developer for System z Manifest Process Tool tech preview, developers and systems programmers can collaborate in an easier manner to improve and speed CICS application development workflow.

The IBM Rational Developer for System z Enterprise Service Tools have been integrated with ADM to define and manage CICS application resources that need to be defined for CICS Web Services and Service Flows to be deployed and tested. The resource definitions can be tied to the service artifacts generated by IBM Rational Developer for System z and managed as part of the software life cycle.

Integrated application life cycle

Enhanced support for managing zOS projects with IBM Rational ClearCase including:

  • Local workstation projects can be managed by ClearCase and then associated with a specific host for remote development and testing
  • Resources stored in the local project can easy be automatically moved to or retrieved from to System z allowing synchronization between host and workstation
  • Remote syntax check can be performed on local projects associated with System z

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository support via the WebSphere Service Registry and Repository Eclipse plugins to allow integration with Web Service test and production governance systems

Enhanced System z Debugger support including:

  • Integration with the LPEX editor facilitating better flow from editing to debugging
  • Use of the outline view while debugging
  • Content assist while entering debug commands
  • New Debug Console commands that can also be entered in a command file are added to allow for unattended debugging.

Enhanced File Manager Integration enables access to Keyed Sequence Data Set (KSDS) files from the IBM Rational Developer for System z workbench including:

  • Browsing and updating datasets from the workbench
  • Supporting template-driven display of VSAM, PDS Member, and Sequential File data
  • Supporting large dataset display and edit
  • New support for File Manager template editing from the workstation
  • New VSAM utility operations such as copy and allocate-like available from the Remote System Explorer browser

Fault Analyzer Integration allows users to:

  • Browse Fault Analyzer ABEND reports on CICS, IMS, Batch, Java, WebSphere, and other runtimes.
  • View dump selections relating to ABENDs.
  • Annotate reports to share comments with other users who browse the same reports.
  • Allows new split-screen mode in the dump analyzer, allowing users to view disparate parts of the same dump contents to compare data in different parts of the dump easily.
  • Includes reference the same editor sessions used for code editing instead of module sidefiles. This offers a more integrated experience using the same data for all problem determination tool integrations and developer sessions leading from editing to fault analysis more seamlessly.

Manifest Processing Tool technology preview

This technology preview provides a systems programmer compliment to the developer Application Deployment Manager. The developer can send requests for groups of CICS resources (a manifest) to be defined, installed, or altered to the system programmer via CICS. By using the Manifest Processing Tool, systems programmers can view requests from developers and easily approve, define, and install required resources with a single click. Systems programmers also have the option to approve only portions of the request and edit requested resource definitions when required.

IBM Rational Developer for System z with EGL

IBM Rational Developer for System z with EGL integrates the capabilities of IBM Rational Developer for System z as described previously with IBM Rational Business Developer V7.5 to facilitate development of EGL driven Web and Web 2.0 Rich UI applications for System z.

IBM Rational Business Developer delivers the latest technology tools to support the definition and testing and debugging of EGL applications and services. It also offers a generation engine that transforms the EGL source into Java or COBOL code optimized for deployment to a broad variety of application hosting environments including J2EE servers (such as WebSphere, and Apache Tomcat) and traditional transactional systems (such as IBM System z CICS and IMS).

EGL hides the details of the target execution platforms and associated middleware, freeing developers to focus on the business problem rather than on the underlying implementation technologies. Developers who have little or no experience with Java and Web technologies can use EGL to create enterprise-class services and applications quickly and easily. Developers with little or no experience with mainframe programming can quickly create highly optimized System z services and applications.

IBM Rational Developer for System z with EGL provides strong platform coverage, the support for an SOA and for business integration solutions, the usability and versatility of the EGL language, and provide a conversion path for IBM VisualAge® Generator users.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

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

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
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

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.

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.

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage Web site at

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

This product is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Usage restriction

Yes. The IBM Rational Developer for System z V7.5 media package contains complimentary bundled offerings. Usage of and service support for these bundled offerings is subject to restrictions. These restrictions are described in the License Information documents. In order to use any of the bundled offerings outside of the usage restrictions and to receive full service support, you must obtain a separate license for the offering.

The Technology Previews are unwarranted software provided "as is" for evaluation and feedback purposes only. These Technology Previews are not covered under the same licensing, warranty, program technical support and software maintenance as the Rational Developer for System z product. For each Technology Preview, there is a separate license with unique terms and conditions covering licensing, warranty, program technical support and software maintenance. See the license for the Technology Preview you want to evaluate to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of that software.

Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) applies

Yes. Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express. Product upgrades and technical support are provided by the Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as 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 Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as 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 Handbook at

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

Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under the applicable agreements.
