1249374 Impact of Changes to Daylight Savings Time (DST) in U.S. and Canada In March 2007, the effective dates of DST in the U.S. and Canada will change. Sun has announced that older versions of its Java Runtime Environment (JRE) need to be modified to correctly handle these changes. IBM U2 Web DE and IBM U2 data server Clients currently ship with older versions of the JRE . No issues exist with the U2 Clients or U2 Web DE as they do not call time functions. However, user-created Java� applications that use an older JRE may be affected. This document describes the changes, the impact and what actions may be taken to address any concerns. IBM U2 data servers (UniData and UniVerse) and other tools and components, including SystemBuilder and wIntegrate, are not affected as they do not ship a JRE nor do they make calls to any time functions from a JRE.

1199631 Speeding Up Traversing of the UniVerse Lock Table Reducing the page rate of the HPUX when Traversing the UniVerse Lock Table
1177927 Changes to the way licenses are consumed when running phantoms Due to the increasing use of APIs which allow PHANTOMS to interactively solicit user input, we have implemented changes to the way licenses are consumed. The original intent of PHANTOM licenses as for background processing such as batch file updates, report generation and other similar forms of processing where user intervention was not required. In fact, PHANTOMs will abort if they encounter an INPUT statement. However, with the introduction of the CallHTTP and Sockets interfaces as well as support for secure Sockets, XML, MQ and SOAP in recent versions of UniVerse and UniData, PHANTOMs now have the ability to interactively obtain user input without consuming a database license. This negatively impacts the U2 business and is not consistent with our competitors as they either impose limits or charge for PHANTOM licenses.
1110850 How to increase and/or decrease UniData user license counts without stopping and starting UniData on Unix systems In certain instances, the UniData administrator may need to increase or decrease UniData user license counts without the inconvenience of getting all UniData users cleanly off the system and stopping and restarting UniData
