I haven't researched it as of yet, and so I am assuming all fixpaks for
4.1.2 (7 of them I think) have been incorporated.

(in response to Daniel Luksetich)
When I went there and researched it a little, it was saying that this version may not work and if it abends, then you have to clear everything out and totally install 4.1.2 fresh. the implication was it might not be that solid and not work on a number of users machines.


That worried me a bit as to it's stability and has kept me from running it.


Thanks Myron W. Miller

I tried updating via IBM Installation Manager and it failed at the very end
with a failure to get eclipse updates. It left 4.1.2 unusable so I
installed it to a new location and that install completed successfully.

Data Studio 4.1.3
(in response to Myron Miller)
I've been running 4.1.3 since just after it was released on both Windows
and Linux boxes.

It has been totally stable.

You'll not notice a lot of difference in functionality if you've been
keeping your 4.1.2 fixpacks up to date. If you've not been applying 4.1.2
fixpacks (lots of people are not even aware these things exist) then you
will notice a lot of new functionality, particularly in support of DB2 for
z/OS features.

However the big thing about it is that the underlying Eclipse version has
been brought up to date. This has two main benefits for us. Firstly it
allows shell sharing with a lot of other IBM products (such as the latest
IMS Explorer and IDz). But more importantly for us, it brings the Eclipse
to a version where lots of the plugins we want to use are going to continue
working - we were starting to struggle with a lot of plugins, particularly
those for the various source control packages we use since the versions for
the Eclipse in 4.1.2 were either not being maintained or were in some cases
even disappearing from repositories. This new version has fixed these
problems.

Incidentally, I only discovered after I'd upgraded my first installation in
situ (one sometimes gets carried away and reads the release notes
afterwards) that you are supposed to do a clean install rather than
installing over 4.1.2. I've done both and not had a problem with either
approach. There will be an update to Installation Manager first in either
case. I guess if you have problems then you'll probably be asked by
support to do a clean install, but that is not really a big deal.

Key point is that I've never experienced any stability issues with DS 4.1.3
so far, and I use it every day (working in the App Dev space I virtually
live in Data Studio).

Mark,

Good info. Do you also use QWT with DS? If so, any issues there with a Z/OS DB2 DB? Thanks.

(in response to Philip Nelson)
I installed 4.1.3 after removing 4.1.2 and all is well. It still has major functionality problems (failures) with SSL/TLS when connected to DB2 for z/OS. I’m not very hopeful for a fix anytime soon. I noticed it’s faster.

Cheers,

Dan
