z Systems Development and Test Environment Beta


The IBM z Systems Development and Test Environment (zD&T) Tools beta allows an authorized user the ability to quickly create application images from full z/OS volumes or from existing zD&T instances. This Beta includes the Web UI that allows you to create assets, monitor and automatically configure, install and deploy to target systems. The only requirement is that a Linux OS is installed. After the deploy, you will have a running z/OS image where you can complete your activities in a non-shared emulated zD&T environment. This self-service tool will automate image creation and operation, and save time for system programmers, developers and testers.
