IBM is to extend its range of subscription levels, along with new support options, for its developerWorks Toolbox subscription, which offers access to 1,000 IBM products and technologies programmers can use to create Web services and applications.

Under the new licensing which, IBM hoped would accelerate the development of Web services, developers will be able to build applications using WebSphere Studio and build, test, demonstrate, and evaluate them at a significantly reduced price.

Among the enhancements include licensing that will allow developers to use WebSphere Studio products and middleware for development and testing. Until now, developers could only use these products for evaluation and testing.

IBM will also offer separately purchasable technical support incidents for selected WebSphere Studio products through the developerWorks Toolbox subscription. The subscription levels are tailored for specific development needs for core middleware, including WebSphere VS.

The Toolbox subscription offers developers a choice of access including issuing CDs or a new custom CD option. Developers can also access an online downloadable catalogue, automatic notification of new items through a customisable COntentNotification options, and the printed developerWorks journal.

Developers can receive four shipments in the course of their 12-month subscription.
