Enable technology which would provide access to update, view, delete, etc data in a DB2 data store without requiring a major rewrite of the U2 BASIC application. Deliver technology based on an open driver framework allowing for eventual third party development and deployment to other data stores. EDA – Business Benefits:  EDA – Business Benefits Flexibility to deploy some or all of the data to non-U2 data stores No requirement to migrate all or nothing Migrate what you need, when you need it, where you want it Run your existing applications with minimal changes! New application modules can be developed to leverage specific functionality of the non-U2 data store Take advantage of DB2 UDB Federated capabilities Deploy a new Content Management strategy on DB2 UDB IBM Customer Assurance :  IBM Customer Assurance IBM U2 plus EDA plus DB2 U2 functions as Application Server U2 can continue to serve as data store DB2 can function as the data store IBM Values All of Its Partners and Customers IBM Fosters a Long Term Relationship RedBack and SB+ Engineering:  RedBack and SB+ Engineering May – December 2003: Transfer of development to Denver Transfer of knowledge of internals, build and testing procedures Release RB 4.3.3 and SB 5.3.4 to beta using existing processes 2004: Q1: General release of RB 4.3.3 and SB 5.3.4 Starting in Q2: Bring RB and SB into compliance with IBM U2 development, QA and release processes Goal: improved Quality, Stability, Maintainability Build automated QA suites and stress tests Produce maintenance releases (aka patch releases) at predefined intervals, with higher quality and fewer regressions SB+/SBClient Roadmap:  SB+/SBClient Roadmap 2003 2004 2005 5.3.3 SB+: Interoperability, Usability SSL Support Multi-language Improvements Security and Administration Developer tool enhancements Usability Features 1H05 Web-enablement GUI Enhancements Server-side SBClient Licensing Unattended Installation Client Platform support Customer requests .next Security Admin Improvements CUI/GUI Developer Enhancements SAMBA Support GUI Grid Performance 5.3.4 5.3.6 5.4.x Usability Enhancements Developer Tool Improvements GUI Grid Issues Resolved Text Translation GA 04/04 Imperative Fixes 2006 SB+ Server v5.3.3 – New Features:  SB+ Server v5.3.3 – New Features New SBExplorer (SBX) Capabilities Multiple System ID Navigation… Proc Before/After Opt Slots Execute when option selected, not a branch SBPARM(18) continues to provide menu/option selected Updating of Combos via SB+ Expression Similar to V: validation code Allows for dynamic population GUI re-evaluates upon GetFocus SB+ Server v5.3.3 – Enhancements:  SB+ Server v5.3.3 – Enhancements ListView Look-up List Items Returned In Order Selected “Download All” option Alleviates the need to prompt the user for “more” Grid Performance and Capabilities Data Population Protocol Changed Up to 50% performance improvement Grid and Non-grid toggles aligned “True” must now be 1st value when V: used CIADE Controlling Field Sortable by click on heading May have focus allowing keyboard navigation Called processes determine row via @CNT New GUI and sbmvclass Object Properties… Resequence Fields option Overrides default screen sequence of fields Supports interleaved GRID rows SB+ Server v5.3.3 – Enhancements:  SB+ Server v5.3.3 – Enhancements SB Remote Process New status information returned Status Code, Error Message, SB+ return code Background mode process No longer pause on fatal error (eg.

Requires Windows 2000 / 2003 / XP to run as a service Java client backward-compatibility:  Java client backward-compatibility Not all Windows functionality can be reproduced in Java No dynamic screen resizing Copy menu doesn’t have smart interaction with Windows applications, eg Copy Table to Excel/Word Use of Windows API not supported in first release, so auto-run of Excel after QB import not supported Printing may not be consistent with Windows version Font is Courier as fonts can’t easily be downloaded Java client backward-compatibility:  Java client backward-compatibility Some facilities absent when running in sandbox Interaction with local machine, e.g. writing local files Some developer features different Changes to scripts and host programs required - SendMessage, RunProgram, WindowsDir, imaging… OLE/DDE for Windows (and Mac equivalent) require machine-specific code. Not present in first release Email and FTP not supported in first release Character screen – same as before:  Character screen – same as before Char-based applications on the web look and feel exactly as before. Rollover menus:  Rollover menus Menus appear automatically when the mouse rolls over Cool look for dialogs – Query Builder:  Cool look for dialogs – Query Builder All scripted dialogs such as Query Builder are shown with a flat style. Will support different display styles and background images. MITS:  MITS Current release v5.1.1 Enhancements to MitsView, MitsWeb & MitsMaker Multiple copies of MitsWeb gateway can now be run on the same computer, with different configurations. This allows a single server to host multiple MitsWeb interfaces to different MitsServers. MitsWeb can now run as a Windows service. MitsWeb provides new PDF export capabilities.
