Calories don’t count if festivals are around the corner, right? And the end of the year is time for feasting. Here is your first Continuous Delivery (CD) update for Application Delivery Foundation for z/OS (ADFz). In September, we released ADFz 3.2, starting the 3.2 release stream with our signature dish of Day One support for z15 accompanied by integrated DevOps toolchain enhancements. We continue with ADFz 3.2.1, released December 6. 2019, where the main feature is shift left testing, accompanied by ongoing delivery of customer requirements.

We dedicate this special treat to all the developers across the globe. This will be our last release for this year until we are back in 2020, as always with a bang.

Here are some highlights from ADFz 3.2.1

• IBM Developer for z/OS Enterprise Edition is a superset of IBM Developer for z/OS and Debug for z/OS with value add capabilities like Dependency Based Build (DBB).

IBM Developer for z/OS V14.2.1 provides new automated unit testing capabilities for CICS Db2 programs that can help alleviate the burdens of manual testing and allow for testing early and often. Because this offering is tightly integrated into developer environments, unit testing can become a daily practice for z/OS application developers.
