Pinned topic Help - IBM Open Class Library license.

‏2012-12-18T12:09:18Z |
I support an area where there is a large amount of legacy C code running on AIX which uses the IBM Open Class Library.

We have recently become aware of this issue and are surprised that we are still able to compile all of it, but are concerned if we will still will be able after future aix and or xlc upgrades.

Migrating the code to STL or any other library is not a viable option for us because the extensive amount of code and limited resources. We are very interested in a piece of information in the migration code which states that a broader license from IBM for the Open class library source code can be obtained so that we can integrate it into our code.

Problem is we don't know who to contact on this. The document refers to this link which is no longer valid -> www.ibm.com/sofware/ad/vacpp/support/ioclicense.html.

Perhaps someone has an idea who to contact or had a similar experience. If so please let me know.

Thanks a lot & Best Regards,
Kristiany Zamai.

    Hi,

    The last AIX compiler to support IOC was VisualAge C++ for AIX, V5.0 which went out of service in 2003.

    To inquire about the broader license, send an email to vacppioc@ca.ibm.com with the request.

    IMO, IBM should open source the IOC. There is some useful stuff in there.
