DB2 7.1 for z/OS Text extender

DB2 7.1 for z/OS Text extender
Hello,

A colleague has passed to me a rumour that Text Extender for DB2 v7.1 on
z/OS will no longer be available under z/OS V1.7. Does anybody know if
this is true, or can point me to a place in the literature that might have
this announcement?

Regards

If you get an answer on this, please post here.
I would be very glad not to be in the
Text Extender business!

Re: DB2 7.1 for z/OS Text extender

Apparently what has happened with z/OS 1.7 is that z/OS Text Search, which
DB2 Text Extender needs to function, is no longer supplied as default. z/OS
Text Search is however available as a no-charge download from the IBM
website to allow DB2 Text Extender to function under z/OS 1.7.

However, the announcement letter for DB2 V9 Beta
( http://www.ibm.com/common/ssi/rep_ca/8/897/ENUS206-098/ENUS206-098.PDF )
is explicit: "Text Extender is removed."

So it is going to happen.

Re: DB2 7.1 for z/OS Text extender
(in response to James Campbell)
Among many papers, see Marna Walle's paper about z/OS 1.7 migration:

"With z/OS V1.6, Text Search is no longer made available as a base element
of z/OS. Instead, it will be made
available for Web download as z/OS and z/OS.e Text Search under a
restricted license. This is a change to the
statement of direction made in Software Announcement 203-266 (RFA38767),
dated October 7, 2003, which stated
that with z/OS V1.6, the Text Search base element would be removed and no
replacement would be provided. The
Text Search element has been removed from the z/OS product. However, the
Text Search function is still required
and licensed for use only for DB2(R) UDB Text Extender feature of DB2
Universal Database for z/OS, Program
Number 5625-DB2, as a Web deliverable named z/OS and z/OS.e Text Search.
Before you use the DB2 UDB Text
Extender feature, you must download and install the z/OS and z/OS.e Text
Search Web deliverable on z/OS V1.6.
Notable change: Starting with z/OS V1.7 and z/OS.e V1.7, the z/OS and
z/OS.e Text Search Web deliverable is no
longer available as a z/OS Web deliverable. Instead, the Text Search
function is provided by Web download from the
DB2 UDB Text Extender Web support site:
http://www.ibm.com/software/data/db2/extenders/text/te390/"
