We have offered DB2 Web Query licenses at no charge to customers that own
Query/400 and are current on IBM i Group SW Maintenance since 2008 and
this is still true today. Having said that, it is true that most customers
have received those licenses over the last 7 years and most likely they
were at the Version 1 level because they got the Query/400 upgrade before
Version 2 was even available. But like most IBM products, if you are
current on SW Maintenance, Version to Version upgrades are also no charge.
So for all those customers that may own licenses to Version 1 - they can
upgrade at no charge to Version 2.1.1 assuming they are current on
Software Maintenance. For any customer that never upgraded Query/400 to
DB2 Web Query - they could still do this upgrade today and we'd ship them
the Version 2 licenses.
In other words, your statement isn't really correct as we still offer
Express Edition at no charge, or upgrades into Express Edition at no
charge if you meet the SW Maintenance requirements. You should know that
this "no charge" version does have a limited number of user licenses
associated with it, so it is very likely you might need to add additional
user licenses or upgrade into Standard Edition if you require functions
only available with that addition. For further information, please refer
to the Frequently Asked Question document at ibm.biz/db2webqueryi.
