What's New in Z Development and Test Environment (ZD&T)
What's New in V12.0.1
- Pre-deployment validation is added. When you deploy an application image to a Linux environment, the pre-deployment validation function will automatically check the target system environment and deployment directory to ensure that the deployment will be successful.
- Support for deleting a Linux target environment with deployed application image is added, you can choose to remove a ZD&T instance from the target system and revert network configuration, and remove application image volume files from the deployment directory.
- ADCD application image can be created with data sets from IBM Z systems.
- Support for compressing the volume files during the creation of an image from an existing ZD&T instance.
- If a deployment fails during the volume transfer, you can resume the deployment at the last volume file thatâ€™s being transferred rather than starting from the beginning.
- Support starting, IPL and stopping the emulator directly from Web UI
- Support SSH certificate login authentication to create an image from an existing ZD&T instance.
