Note that JTOpen contains all the function and fixes of the most recent Toolbox LPP release, plus additional enhancements.

The JTOpen support statement

JTOpen is the open source version of the IBM Toolbox for Java License Program Product (LPP). Aside for simply being "open source" it is our fast path mechanism to gets fixes and enhancements to customers without waiting for possible PTFs or release boundaries. Thus, the JTOpen offering is always at the most current level of fixes and functions and generally leads by six months the fixes available via the Toolbox for Java LPP.

Support for the current unmodified version of the IBM supplied JTOpen is identical to the IBM Toolbox for Java LPP. If a software defect is found, the fix will be provided in the next available public build. The level of support - voice, email or fax is dependant on the type of service contract. Although the terms and conditions require the statement of "as is" support for JTOpen, the JTOpen code is maintained by the same development team and with the same level of quality as the Toolbox LPP.

Code fixes for JTOpen will continue to be supplied via the web site. The JTOpen support is also possible via its own forum via the web site. The JTOpen code is available in both compiled and source code versions for customer downloads.

This agreement is applicable worldwide and has been agreed to by the IBM i Service Support team.
