  • New Release 10.2.2 of Rocket Terminal Emulator

    The Rocket Software team is pleased to announce that a new version of Rocket® Terminal Emulator (Web and Desktop Edition) is now available.

    Rocket® Terminal Emulator provides secure access to IBM Z®, IBM® i, and VT applications. The Web Edition is a browser-based emulation for any PC, tablet, or mobile device, whereas the Desktop Edition provides cost-efficient access to terminal-based applications from the desktop. Rocket® Terminal Emulation also runs within the Zowe® framework.

    Rocket® Terminal Emulator (Web Edition)

    The new version 10.2.2 of Rocket® Terminal Emulator (Web Edition) provides usability, printing and security improvements that are based on input we got from our customers. Here are some of these enhancements:

    ·        Nested scripting support – a script can now call another script without any limitation in nesting the scripts. This enables to create a toolset of scripts that can be reused.

    ·        Improved session list – for opening a new session the list of sessions can be viewed in the existing condensed view on the left side or can be shown using the new view covering the complete browser window. This allows to see more sessions and is providing a function to filter the list for customers that have a high number of sessions.

    ·        Direct printing – from the printer session there is an option to print directly to the default printer, no need to create a PDF and use the print functionality of the Browser. This feature is currently available on user devices running on Linux and will be available for Windows soon.

    ·        Print multiple screens – multiple screen copies can be collected and saved in a single PDF or printed in one step.

    Several additional enhancements based on customers’ feedback around user experience, security and administration can be reviewed in detail, together with the resolved issues in the Rocket TE Web Edition V10.2.2 release notes (rocketsoftware.com).

    Rocket® Terminal Emulator (Desktop Edition)

    In the new version 10.2.2 of Rocket® Terminal Emulator (Desktop Edition) we focused on improving the end user experience like:

    ·        Save open sessions and layout – all open sessions can be saved together with the layout like tab groups. This enables users to load their customization when they start the Terminal Emulator and get the same view as they need it.

    ·        Offline documentation access – some Terminal Emulator environments are highly secured and do not have Internet access. We are providing the end user help information now as Windows Help Files to enable offline access.

    Additional enhancements and the resolved issues can be found in the Rocket TE Desktop Edition V10.2.2 release notes (rocketsoftware.com).

    Detailed release notes can be found in the Rocket Terminal Emulator Desktop and Web Edition V10.2.2 release notes (rocketsoftware.com), and adjusted guides can be found for Rocket® Terminal Emulator (Web Edition) in the Library (rocketsoftware.com) and for Rocket® Terminal Emulator (Desktop Edition) in the Library (rocketsoftware.com).

  • Sentinel RMS Cloud Services stops working!

    Customers running one of these Platforms (WS2008 and WS2012) will NOT be able to download the License file from our EMS system automatically. The Cloud Plugin (SCP) will work, but does NOT download anything. 

    The SCP.log file will state communication error: [D]Error in communication: 12175

    This because the Security on the EMS system, that supplies the license file,  does NOT allow this communication to happen anymore.

    Initially, this change happened on April 1, 2024 and will lead to customers to have a License Expiration date of May 12, 2024.

    On our request,  we have installed a Temporary file on the EMS that will allow communication again UNTIL the end of July 2024.

    Meaning that Customers will be able to download through the SCP until end of July and will get their last downloaded license to expire at the end of August 2024.

    Customers will need to UPGRADE their Operating System to Windows Server 2016, 2019, 2022 or use a supported Linux / Unix version for their RMS service.

  • Rocket® UniData 8.3.2 with Rocket® MVX: Performance 1.10 elevates your HADR experience

    The Rocket MV team is pleased to announce the release of Rocket UniData 8.3.2 and Rocket MultiValue Performance Experience (MVX: Performance) 1.10 on April 25th, 2024.

    UniData 8.3.2 is the first UniData release certified with the Rocket MultiValue Performance Experience (MVX: Performance) 1.10, which is available for our customers on maintenance. MVX: Performance monitors the performance of your UniData server and provides DBAs or developers with a better way to track down issues. It determines the root cause of issues, including the server, the operating system, the hardware, or a combination. DBAs can easily receive alerts when over 40 performance monitoring events occur, so constant monitoring is not required.  In addition, UniData 8.3.2 and MVX: Performance 1.10 provide you with an enhanced replication experience, bolstering High Availability and Disaster Recovery (HA/DR) capabilities.

    UniData 8.3.2 extends the security features introduced in UniData 8.3.1, which included:

    • Enhancements and bug fixes that help you manage your replication environment more effectively — important for High Availability/Disaster Recovery.
    • Security upgrades and enhancements to help keep your applications and business safe and compliant. By upgrading to OpenSSL v3.0, UniData 8.3.1+ supports a wide array of protocol levels. OpenSSL 3.0 includes a major architectural change from OpenSSL 1.1 and brings with it enhanced security features.
    • The version of Python we include in 8.3.1+, Python 3.11, includes the Python OpenSSL extension, meaning it no longer depends on UniData’s built-in OpenSSL version. Like other third-party libraries, the Python OpenSSL extension now relies on the OpenSSL version provided by the operating system.

    Regarding HA/DR, MVX: Performance 1.10 provides a replication monitoring feature which greatly improves the display from XAdmin by providing:

    • a statistical summary display of multiple distributions
    • identification of LSNs causing subscribing group(s) to stop processing
    • trend information on pacing
    • time behind
    • time to catch up
    • replication events and notifications
    • replication responsive charts with historical data showing concurrency trends and estimated time to catch up

  • RELEASE ANNOUNCEMENT Rocket® DevOps v10.3.1 updates for RDOe|i|portal|test and VS Code

    RELEASE ANNOUNCEMENT

    Rocket® DevOps core for IBM i 10.3 (PTF1), Rocket® DevOps portal 10.3.1, Rocket® DevOps test 10.3.1, Rocket® DevOps extension for VS Code 10.3, Rocket® Jira Cloud Plugin, and Rocket® Eclipse Plugins 10.3.0.

    March 28th, 2024

    Rocket Software Product Management is excited to announce the release of Rocket DevOps 10.3.1.

    Rocket DevOps is a modernization platform that enables end-to-end CI/CD for IBM i+ environments. Businesses can build the structure and flexibility they need to extend holistic DevSecOps best practices to IBM i while enabling their teams to adapt to any change in process or technology.

    Special Note: Starting with version 10.0.0 Rocket Aldon Lifecycle Manager for IBM i (LMi) was renamed to “Rocket DevOps core for IBM i (RDOi),” and Rocket Aldon Lifecycle Manager for Enterprise (LMe) was renamed to “Rocket DevOps core for Enterprise (RDOe).”

    Rocket DevOps 10.3.1. continues to build upon the comprehensive modern pipeline features that support organizations wishing to introduce new CI/CD processes and toolsets to IBM i development. Customers can experiment and innovate by introducing new development technologies in a way and at a pace that makes sense to them. Continuity is a key feature of this enablement as traditional development methodologies continue to be fully supported.

    Tight integration with modern development tools such as Git, VS Code, Jira, and Jenkins is enhanced in the 10.3.1 release.

    Customers can manage source code using native RDOi features, Git, or a combination of both technologies. VS Code can be used to edit source code and, optionally, build processing can be initiated using Jenkins. Regardless of source code provider or build initiation method, developers can still take advantage of the same Rocket DevOps IBM i build processor that they have come to rely on for over 30 years.

    Git repositories can be populated automatically with IBM i source code previously managed by RDOi, and developers can use native Git functions to manage source code versions moving forward.

    VS Code for IBM i offers an alternative to IBM® Rational® Developer for i. This release also includes additional functions and improvements to the initial release, based upon customer feedback. Customers can use VS Code to manage source using native RDOi functions or take advantage of new RDOi Git integration. This version is available from the VS Code Marketplace.

    Highlights of this release include: 

    • Improved product installation routines providing additional automation and error recovery capabilities
    • Further centralization of troubleshooting data providing access to RDOt logs from within RDOp
    • Enhancements to the VS Code extension including the ability to select multiple objects to promote in RDOi and job status refresh improvements.
    • The ability to validate…*
      • An entire table or database against custom-defined validation rules (including test data extracted and anonymised by RDOt)
      • All database changes made during a Test Run against custom-defined validation rules
      • Captured 5250 screen displays against expected results and highlight where mismatched *

    * - may require additional license

    Compatibility Information:

    Host OS: IBM i version 7.3, 7.4, 7.5; Linux version Red Hat 7.9 and later, 8.1 - 8.6, Red Hat 9.0 - 9.2

  • Rocket Terminal Emulator (Web Edition) now supports Docker deployment using Rocket Registry

    We are pleased to announce that the Docker Container deployment of Rocket Terminal Emulator (Web Edition) 10.2.1 is now available using the Rocket Registry. The Rocket Registry is a repository of Containers that includes access control.

    Docker Containers provide several advantages for customers and prospects that want to deploy for testing or production purposes compared to standard installation procedures like:

    ·        Consistency - Docker provides a standardized environment for deploying applications. Containers package all the code and dependencies needed for an application, ensuring that it works consistently across different servers and operating systems. Say goodbye to the “Will this work on my machine?” dilemma.

    ·        Stability - Docker containers are based on Linux, with the Linux kernel included in every container. This stability extends to any system or device, even when running containers on Mac or Windows. No more unexpected compatibility issues or rollbacks due to updates.

    ·        Space Efficiency - Unlike traditional Virtual Machines (VMs), which consume significant server space and memory, Docker containers are lightweight. They only include the app code and dependencies, making them much smaller. Running entirely on the cloud, they eliminate the need for large physical servers.

    ·        Isolation - Containers work independently of each other, allowing various tasks to occur in isolation. This isolation enhances security and resource utilization.

    Additionally to the option to use Docker Containers which was introduced with Rocket Terminal Emulator (Web Edition) 10.2.1 the support of the Rocket Registry makes it much easier for customers to install. It enables Rocket to track who downloaded the containerized version of the product.

    Any customer with access to our Rocket Community Portal can download the containers from Rocket Registry by using his Rocket Community Portal credentials.

    The documentation of the Docker installation using the Rocket Registry can be found here:

  • Rocket® MultiValue Performance Experience v1.9.0- Now Available and provide even more insights into

    We are pleased to announce the release of MultiValue Performance Experience v 1.9.0.1516 on January 25, 2024.  This is the third MVX: Performance release focused on improving replication as part of a MultiValue HA/DR strategy.  We’ve added replication charts to provide you with more insights into the replication status and latency of your MV databases. You can now see four different charts showing you the subscriber latency trend, the estimated time to catch up, and the distribution of replication data for all groups or a selected group. This is a big improvement over using XAdmin, where you had to do the mental math to understand the estimated time to catch up. You can also use the Graphical Range drop-down menu in MVX: Performance to select a time range for viewing the data trends.

    Two of the replication charts now support aggregated group data, which means you can see the combined data for multiple groups in one chart. This can help you compare and contrast the replication performance of different groups.

    In order to prevent the perfhist data file from growing too large, we’ve optimized this with a default value of 1 day.  This has created system crashes in the past.

    The Memory Utilization table now provides information for the Cache Size in numeric measured units.

    In addition, the Universe Port is now named unirpc port to identify the port of the data server more precisely to be registered.  This should reduce confusion in the registration process.

    To learn more about these and other features, please refer to the documentation or contact us for a demo. We hope you enjoy using this powerful tool, which helps to optimize and enhance your MV performance.

    For more information, please consult the Release Notes. And be sure to check out our new MVX: Performance playlist on our YouTube channel. 

    The Rocket MultiValue Performance Experience is free to our customers on maintenance. Our team is eager to assist you with any questions or support you may need during the upgrade process. If you are currently on maintenance, you can download Rocket UniVerse 11.4.1 on Rocket Business Connect (RBC). If you do not have an active maintenance contract, please contact our sales team to get started!

    Recommendation

    Developing secure, high-quality software is a top priority at Rocket. To ensure we meet top standards in these categories, we adhere to standards set by some of the leading software scans such as Synopsys Black Duck, Polaris, and VeraCode with each release. Rocket acquired the Zumasys product portfolio on Oct 14, 2021. Starting with the jBASE (5.8.6) release these scans are now integrated into the release process. Zumasys did not conform to the same security and quality practices hence any release prior to 5.8.6 does not align with Rocket's standards. We highly recommend upgrading to the latest version of  jBASE at your earliest convenience to ensure your organization has the most secure software.

    Plan your upgrade

    If you have a current maintenance contract, visit Rocket Business Connect (RBC) today to download 6.1.1. If you don't have an active maintenance contract, please contact your Rocket salesperson or partner.
