Jazz for Service Management - Clarificatoin on JazzSM installable components

Body

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:

 Administration Services
 Administration Services UI
 Security Services
 Reporting Services environment
 Registry Services
 IBM Dashboard Application Services Hub
Jazz for Service Management extension for IBM WebSphere

For JazzSM 1.1.3 or newer the installable components are:
 Reporting Services environment
 IBM Dashboard Application Services Hub
Jazz for Service Management extension for IBM WebSphere

 

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 1.1.0.2.   When the component was eventually updated, its updated version number changed to 1.1.2.1. but it has not changed since that update.  The following lists the component version by JazzSM release:

Jazz for Service Management  1.1.2.0 installation package includes the following installable components:

Administration Services 1.1.2.0
 Administration Services UI 1.1.2.0
 Security Services 1.1.2.0
 Reporting Services environment 1.1.2.0
 Registry Services 3.1.2.0
 IBM Dashboard Application Services Hub 3.1.2
Jazz for Service Management extension for IBM WebSphere 1.1.2.1

 

Jazz for Service Management  1.1.2.1 installation package includes the following installable components:

Administration Services 1.1.2.1
 Administration Services UI 1.1.2.1
 Security Services 1.1.2.1
 Reporting Services environment 3.1.2
 Registry Services 1.1.2.1
 IBM Dashboard Application Services Hub 3.1.2.1
Jazz for Service Management extension for IBM WebSphere 1.1.2.1

Jazz for Service Management  1.1.3.0 installation package includes the following installable components:

 Reporting Services environment 3.1.3
 IBM Dashboard Application Services Hub 3.1.3
Jazz for Service Management extension for IBM WebSphere 1.1.2.1

The Administration, Security, and Registry services are deprecated in the JazzSM 1.1.3.0 installation package.

Jazz for Service Management  1.1.3.1 installation package includes the following installable components:

 Reporting Services environment 3.1.3.0
 IBM Dashboard Application Services Hub 3.1.3.1
Jazz for Service Management extension for IBM WebSphere 1.1.2.1

 

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.
