This IBM® Solution Guide introduces the IBM System z® New Application License Charge (zNALC) pricing structure and examples of zNALC workload scenarios, which is the focus of this book. This guide describes the products that can be run on a zNALC LPAR and reasons why one would consider such an implementation.
Java on System z has received significant and on-going investment from IBM, building the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) from the ground up, developing hardware that can be exploited by the JVM, and building core middleware technology using Java, making Java on the mainframe one of the world's most optimized Java environments.
IBM CICS® Transaction Server Value Unit Edition allows you to deploy new Java workloads at a fixed cost. zNALC provides a reduced price for IBM z/OS®. And for customers who have IBM System z Application Assist Processors (zAAP), Java workload can be transferred to the specialty processor, further reducing the cost of running new Java workloads under CICS Transaction Server.
