IBM CICS and the Coupling Facility: Beyond the Basics
Application Platform

Redbooks, published 21 Feb 2018

It's easy to look at the title of a book and think "that's old news" or "I already know all there is to know on that subject." But before you dismiss this publication, consider just how far the IBM® Parallel Sysplex® architecture has come. From the early days the mainframe has embraced a shared everything approach. The original designers coded IBM z/OS® (called IBM MVS™ or IBM OS/390® back then) with the functionality necessary for the operating system to create the repositories, manage the data flow, and ensure the integrity of the systems involved. From there, the middleware systems ... [more]

Liberty in IBM CICS: Deploying and Managing Java EE Applications
Application Platform

Redbooks, published 18 Jan 2018, last updated 20 Feb 2018

This IBM® Redbooks® publication is intended for IBM CICS® system programmers and IBM Z architects. It describes how to deploy and manage Java EE 7 web-based applications in an IBM CICS Liberty JVM server and access data on IBM Db2® for IBM z/OS® and IBM MQ for z/OS sub systems. In this book, we describe the key steps to create and install a Liberty JVM server within a CICS region. We then describe how to best use the different deployment techniques for Java EE applications and the specific considerations when deploying applications that use JDBC, JMS, and the new CICS link to Liberty API. ...

IBM CICS Asynchronous API: Concurrent Processing Made Simple
Application Integration

Redbooks, published 22 Dec 2017

This IBM® Redbooks® publication covers the background and implementation of the IBM CICS® asynchronous API, which is a simple, accessible API that is designed to enable CICS application developers to create efficient asynchronous programs in all CICS-supported languages. Using the API, application developers can eliminate the overhead that is involved in coding and managing homegrown asynchronous solutions, instead using a set of CICS-supported API commands to underpin CICS applications, which are more responsive and robust than ever. Initially, the book reviews the history and motivations ... [more]

IBM zPDT Guide and Reference
Application Platform

Redbooks, published 20 Dec 2017

This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides both introductory information and technical details about the IBM System z® Personal Development Tool (IBM zPDT®), which produces a small System z environment suitable for application development. zPDT is a PC Linux application. When zPDT is installed (on Linux), normal System z operating systems (such as IBM z/OS®) can be run on it. zPDT provides the basic System z architecture and emulated IBM 3390 disk drives, 3270 interfaces, OSA interfaces, and so on. The systems that are discussed in this document are complex. They have elements of Linux (for ... [more]

Digital Transformation with IBM Application Discovery
Application Platform

Redpaper, published 28 Sep 2017

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication describes how IBM Application Discovery (AD) complements IBM z/OS® Connect Enterprise Edition and IBM Developer for z Systems® in making older mainframe applications available to the digital world. By using a sample scenario, this publication primarily focuses on how the functionality of AD can be used to discover application programming interface (API) candidates and how z/OS Connect can easily create an API out of the mainframe program. It also describes how IBM Developer for z Systems acts as the tool that links the entire ... [more]
