z/OS Connect

This feature provides a gateway between mobile, cloud, and web clients and z/OS back-end systems such as CICS Transaction Server, IMS, and batch applications. It provides RESTful APIs and accepts and returns JSON payloads. The feature enables communication with back-end systems by providing a data transformation service that converts JSON payloads to/from byte arrays consumable by z/OS native-language applications written in Cobol, PL/I, and C.

Command Line Install

bin/installUtility install zosConnect-1.0
If you are installing into 8.5.5.5 or earlier and the feature supports that version, use the featureManager command, for example:
