In z/OS Provisioning Toolkit V1.1.2 we announced support for Node.js in CICS enabling a systems programmer to provision a CICS region running the Node.js application. The ivp_sample.profile in the cics_55_nodejs_ivp sample has been updated in V1.1.5 of the toolkit with a new path in the %INCLUDE statement.

Provision CICS with Node.js


The cics_getting_started template contains optional properties for mounting zFS and configuring the IBM SDK for Node.js – z/OS. These allow you to provision a CICS region ready to run a Node.js application. Try this configuration once you have successfully provisioned CICS with the basic getting started scenario.

The path of the %INCLUDE statement that references a zFS file containing system-wide Node.js configuration data has been updated in in V1.1.5 of the toolkit. All you need to do is configure the port to be used.
