The names and version numbers of the installable components in the Jazz for Service Management installation packages can be a little confusing. This post attempts to provide some clarification on the JazzSM installable components.
What components make up the Jazz for Service Management installation package?
For versions of Jazz for Service Management that are older than version 1.1.3 the available components are:
For JazzSM 1.1.3 or newer the installable components are:
It is the "Jazz for Service Management extension for IBM WebSphere" component that often causes the most confusion for a couple reasons. First, it's the component name: "Jazz for Service Management extension for IBM WebSphere". Its name might suggest to some that installing that component is installing "Jazz for Service Management". In actuality, that component is just a package that enables the other components to deploy and run in WebSphere. The "extensions for IBM WebSphere" is the more pertinent part of that component's name.
In addition to the name of the Jazz for Service Management extension for IBM WebSphere component, its version number can also be confusing. There has been only one update to the extensions component in Jazz for Service Management since JazzSM was first released. The original version number was 126.96.36.199. When the component was eventually updated, its updated version number changed to 188.8.131.52. but it has not changed since that update. The following lists the component version by JazzSM release:
Jazz for Service Management 184.108.40.206 installation package includes the following installable components:
Administration Services 220.127.116.11
Jazz for Service Management 18.104.22.168 installation package includes the following installable components:
Administration Services 22.214.171.124
Jazz for Service Management 126.96.36.199 installation package includes the following installable components:
Reporting Services environment 3.1.3
The Administration, Security, and Registry services are deprecated in the JazzSM 188.8.131.52 installation package.
Jazz for Service Management 184.108.40.206 installation package includes the following installable components:
Reporting Services environment 220.127.116.11
Since the product "Jazz for Service Management" is really just a package of components and each of those components version number may not match the version of the JazzSM installation package it is often confusing. However, from a product compatibility or defect resolution standpoint, it is more important to know the version of the specific Jazz for Service Management component.
