    About Release Notes:

    These release notes are intended to document what has been added, changed and fixed in Valence Framework 5.0 since the last 4.2 release and provide general information about the Valence Framework.

    Licensing:

    By obtaining and using the Valence Framework, it is your responsibility to ensure that you and your company are following the proper licensing terms of the product. Be sure to review the licensing options on the Valence Editions & Pricing page and also review the Licensing & Support FAQs page before downloading and using the Valence Framework.

    Installing This Release:
    • Go to the downloads page to see what releases are available. If this release is superseded by another release it may no longer be available.
    • If this release is available for download then click the link to the download installation file. Be sure to download the correct version of the installer for your PC operating system and for your IBM i OS (V6R1 or V7R1+).
    • It is highly recommend that you perform the installation from a PC or Mac that is on the same internal network as your IBM i. Performing the installation through a slow WAN connection or via a VPN connection may work but can take many hours to install.
    • The download is a zip file. To launch the installer extract the zip file and double click on the ValenceInstall.exe file on your Windows PC, or launch the ValenceInstall.app file on your Mac. Follow the prompts to install Valence Framework 5.0 onto your IBM i. Note that you may need administrative rights on your PC or Mac to launch the installer.
    • It is highly recommended that you use QSECOFR to perform the installation to avoid permissions issues.
    • This release will install to library VALENCE50 and ifs path /valence-5.0. It will also install an Apache server instance named VALENCE50.
    • If you installed a previous beta version of Valence 5.0 you must first completely uninstall the previous version using the instructions in the section below entitled "Uninstalling Valence Framework 5.0." Once the previous version of Valence Framework 5.0 beta is uninstalled you can then run the installer to install the newer version.
    • If you have Valence Framework versions 4.2 and prior installed on your system you may install this release without affecting those earlier versions.
    • Once installed you can access the Valence Portal with the link http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:7050 where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of your IBM i. Port 7050 is the default installation port for Valence Framework 5.0. You can use Advanced Settings to change the port number at installation time.
    • The default user for administrative login to the portal after installation is vvadmin with password vvadmin. However you may also log in with any valid IBM i profile.
    • If using the vvadmin profile, it is highly recommended that you go into the Portal Admin app in the Valence Portal and add an IBM i user cross reference to vvadmin with security officer authority (like QSECOFR) so you will not have permissions issues.
    • To convert portal data from Valence 4.X see Migrating from Valence 4.* in the Valence Guides.
