    Mainframe computers play a central role in the daily operations of many of the world's largest corporations. Batch processing is still a fundamental, mission-critical component of the workloads that run on the mainframe. A large portion of the workload on IBM® z/OS® systems is processed in batch mode.

    This IBM Redbooks® publication is the fourth volume in a series of four. They address new technologies introduced by IBM to facilitate the use of hybrid batch applications that combine the best aspects of Java and procedural programming languages such as COBOL. This volume focuses on the latest enhancements in IBM IMS™ batch support. IMS has been available to clients for 45 years as IMS Transaction Manager, IMS Database Manager, or both.

    The audience for this book includes IT architects and application developers with a focus on batch processing on the z/OS platform.
