Dear Valued Customer:

 

SAP is pleased to announce SAP Sybase RAP 5.0, the next major release of SAP Sybase RAP, with significantly enhanced capabilities.

 

Some of the key enhancements and updates include newly added event processing functionality, support for the latest versions of SAP Sybase® IQ, SAP HANA and SAP Sybase Adaptive Server® Enterprise, integrated management and monitoring through Sybase Control Center, new adapters, and support for creating custom adapters in C/C++, Java, and .NET.

 

Summary

 

Feature

Description

 

New Event processing functionality

RAP includes built-in event processing through Sybase Event

Stream Processor (ESP). Customers can use this to filter and selectively store streaming data in RAPStore or HANA for further analytics, constantly monitor incoming streams and process exceptions with minimal latency, and develop analytics applications on streaming data.

 

RAP ships with a sample RAP project that you can open, edit, and run in Event Stream Processor.

Updated releases of Sybase IQ

and Adaptive Server Enterprise

Updated from Sybase IQ 15.2 to 15.4 and Adaptive Server 15.5 to

15.7.

 

See the Sybase IQ 15.4 New Features Summary (http://infocenter.sybase.com/help/index.jsp?docset=/com.sybase.infocenter.help.iq.15.4/title.htm&docSetID=1817)

 

and New Features Summary Adaptive Server Enterprise 15.7 (http://infocenter.sybase.com/help/index.jsp?docset=/com.sybase.infocenter.help.ase.15.7/title.htm&docSetID=1797) for more information.

 

New Sybase IQ and Adaptive

Server Enterprise options available

for RAPStore and RAPCache,

respectively

You can separately license the Sybase IQ unstructured data analytics option, as well as the Sybase IQ advanced security option for use with the

RAPStore.

 

You can separately license the Adaptive Server Enterprise Security and Directory Services option for use with the RAPCache.

Out-of-the-box adapters

Access to input and output adapters for a variety of data sources,

including databases, file systems, message bus, sockets, etc. are provided with Sybase Event Stream Processor. Specifically, adapters for SAP Sybase ASE, SAP Sybase IQ and SAP HANA are provided. Some

adapters are installed with RAP through Event Stream Processor,

and others such as Reuters Marketfeed, Reuters OMM, NYSE

MAMA, and FIX are licensed and can be purchased separately.

 

Custom adapters for Sybase Event Stream Processor

You can create custom adapters in C/C++, Java, and .NET using

the Sybase Event Stream Processor SDK.

Monitoring

The Sybase Control Center, widely used across the Sybase product portfolio, replaces the existing RAP Operations Console as the administrative user interface for RAP.  Examples of monitoring/administration capabilities include: a) Monitor ESP node activity, including projects and adapters on the node, b) Monitor RAPStore (Sybase IQ) activity and view statistics for the ASE and Sybase IQ Output adapters, and c) View the topology. See the RAP documentation for further details.

 

Existing Sybase RAP Standard Edition 4.x and Sybase RAP Enterprise Edition 4.x customers are encouraged to migrate to Sybase RAP 5.0 as soon as possible and take advantage of these new features.  Details on what versions of RAP, customers can migrate to are provided in the tables below. Table 1 lists the catalog numbers and migration path for the non-localized version of RAP and Table 2 lists the catalog numbers and migration path for the localized version of RAP.

 

Additionally, this letter provides notification of the forthcoming end of engineering support for the current 4.x versions of RAP – The Trading Edition products along with the migration path.

Sybase wishes to call your attention to the following aspects of your migration to Sybase RAP 5.0:

(1)  Sybase RAP 5.0 is not available on IBM AIX.  If you have licensed RAP products on AIX and are current on your support/maintenance, you may migrate your licenses to any Sybase RAP 5.0 currently supported platform at no additional fee.

(2)  Sybase RAP 5.0 is not localized.  If you have previously licensed a localized RAP product and are current on your support/maintenance, you may migrate your licenses to the (non-localized) Sybase RAP 5.0 software at no additional fee.  In the event Sybase releases a localized version of Sybase RAP at a later date (with the decision as to whether it will or will not release a localized version of RAP in the future being at Sybase’s sole discretion), you may migrate from your non-localized Sybase RAP 5.0 license(s) (if you migrated from a localized version to a non-localized version), or from your pre-5.0 localized version of RAP (if you did not  upgrade to RAP 5.0), to the new localized version of RAP at no additional fee.

 

Sybase encourages you to begin migration plans as soon as possible to upgrade your software before the end of engineering support to the supported version identified in the "Migration Path" column as shown in the table above.

 

Please consult the “Migration Information” section of the latest Sybase RAP 5.0 Release Bulletin for additional information that may be pertinent to your migration.  Additionally, please review the “Additional Languages for RAPCache” Technote on the Sybase Technical Documents site.

 

For customers having a current Support Agreement who have elected not to migrate to a supported release by the end of engineering support, continued limited technical support assistance will be made available, subject to the availability of resources.  This limited assistance after the end of engineering support consists of providing existing interim releases (i.e., updates, if any, developed for the product prior to the end of engineering support), telephone and electronic assistance, and migration advice to customers upgrading to Sybase supported products.  It does not include engineering support, new bug fixes or integration of any bug fixes into previous updates.

 

If you have any questions, please call your local Sybase Technical Support Center.  One of our Customer Service representatives will respond to your questions or direct your call to someone who can.  For the number of your closest Technical Support Center, please go to: www.sybase.com/contactus/support.

 

Thank you for your cooperation in this product transition.  We are very excited about the new product releases and look forward to helping you to deploy and get the most out of them.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Product Management and Solution Management, SAP Sybase RAP

SAP
