This IBM® Redbooks® publication describes the IBM System z® Personal Development Tool (IBM zPDT®) 2017 Sysplex Extensions, which is a package that consists of sample files and supporting documentation to help you get a functioning, data sharing sysplex up and running with minimal time and effort. This book is a significant revision of zPDT 2016 Sysplex Extensions, SG24-8315, which is still available online for readers who need the IBM z/OS® 2.1 level of this package.

This package is designed and tested to be installed on top of a standard Application Developers Controlled Distribution (ADCD) environment. It provides the extra files that you need to create a two-way data sharing IBM z/OS 2.2 sysplex that runs under IBM z/VM® in a zPDT environment.
