HP OpenVMS Alpha Software Products Library

01 June 2008


Welcome to this quarter's OpenVMS Alpha Software Products Library Package.  

Application, Modernization and Integration Products (formerly e-Business) 

Beginning with this release of the Alpha Software Products LibraryT, products previously 

delivered on the OpenVMS Alpha e-Business CDs are available on the library consolidated CDs.  

The most current version of each e-Business product will now ship on all library releases 

until the product is retired or replaced.  The quarterly release schedules will deliver timely 

updates.  These products may also be downloaded from SUM.

ASTAware Search Engine Fixed to Work with Microsoft® Windows® Vista

The ASTAware search engine, used with the Online Documentation Library (ODL), has been 

fixed to support Windows Vista for searches.

When the ODL CD is used with Windows Vista, a window briefly opens which starts the search 

engine. When the window goes away, the user may then do searches on the ODL CD.
