1 Apache Derby is included with the default installation to allow quick installations for simple trials or small teams. However, when using Apache Derby, the server limits the number of users to a maximum of 10. To avoid this limitation, install using one of the DB2 editions or another supported database.

2 Each valid client license includes a license to run one instance of DB2 Workgroup Server Edition (excludes z/OS) and one instance of WebSphere Application Server to support Rational Quality Manager. Trials of DB2 and WebSphere Application Server are also available. Express editions of WebSphere Application Server are also available for IBM i at no additional charge by ordering Web Enablement for IBM i. See system requirements for details.

3 A basic requirements template is included. A Rational Requirements Composer Analyst license is required to create custom requirements.

4 A basic defect template is included. A Rational Team Concert Developer license is required to create a custom defect type.

5 Configuration Management is an add on for some tiers of the SaaS offering. Please contact your IBM Sales representative for further details.
