So what (from IBM & other major software vendors)
requires PASE?
Websphere server?
What else?

The other major piece of software not mentioned much but is an adapted
bit of non-IBM software - Apache webserver... and it is mentioned often in
the CERT Advisories over the years.

Perhaps some of you are too young to remember the earlier DNS (not sure if this same as Pat mentioned) that had IBM calling customers to load the critical fix...
or the Common security group and their "demonstrations"...

Perhaps there's some trouble in this. A question that would need to
be clarified by IBM is the appropriate definition of "PASE".

As far as I can recall, I haven't seen an authoritative statement of
whether or not (a) PASE is totally contained within 5722SS1 option
33 "PASE" or (b) that option is primarily an interface to an
internal "PASE" that exists whether option 33 is installed or not.

I mean, obviously the 'Portable App Solutions Environment' installs
a bunch of programs and files. But maybe those are mostly shells,
utilities and other supporting objects. It might be like 5722ST1
doesn't install SQL nor the capability to create and use QM queries
and forms; it's more that it installs a bunch of handy interfaces
that make them far easier for people to use.

So, how much of PASE (AIX?) is part of i5/OS if "PASE" isn't
installed. Semantics? Perhaps. But it seems relevant to know.
