If you are upgrading to IBM i 7.2, please load the following    
PTFs, and then follow the directions in SAP note 2011710,      
especially noting the pre-requisite kernel patch levels.        
When installing additional 5770-SS1 options or other Licensed  
Program Products(LPPs), reload and reapply group and cumulative
PTFs.                                                          
To order the most recent cumulative or group, request the      
SFxxxxx number shown below.  CL command WRKPTFGRP displays the  
current level and status of cumulative and Group PTFs that are  
installed on the partition.  CL command DSPPTF displays, by LPP,
the individual PTFs have been installed on this partition.      
Also keep in mind, that the HIPER GROUP is much more important,
than the Cumulative package.                                    
As HIPER PTFs are High Impact Pervasive PTFs !!!

****************************************************************
DRIVER INFORMATION FOR SAP JAVA BASED APPLICATIONS              
A Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) driver is required for SAP  
workloads that are based on Java.  There are different options  
available to you and your choice will depend on several factors.
See SAP note 654800 to determine which driver will meet your    
requirements.  The notes will also indicate from where you may  
obtain that driver and in which IFS directory it should be      
placed.                                                        
In IBM i 7.2, the IBM Toolbox for Java LPP is shipped as part of
5770-SS1 (option 3) - Extended Base Directory Support and the  
latest version will be included in the PTF lists for SS1 above.
If you are upgrading from an older IBM i release, the LPP      
5761-JC1 should be removed.                                    
If you are using the JTOpen toolbox driver, the recommended    
version is 7.0 and can be obtained from following the links at  
http://www.ibm.com/systems/i/software/toolbox/downloads.html    
****************************************************************
DATABASE CLIENT CODE FOR WINDOWS BASED SAP APPLICATION SERVERS  
SAP note 1431956 states SAP systems using Windows application  
servers with IBM i 7.1 will use SAP DBSL Direct Drive (XDN) as a
database client.  XDN is shipped within the SAP kernel.  IBM i  
Access is no longer required for Windows-based SAP application  
servers.
