To do What
Can easily write and deploy Java applications that make use of services that are unique to z/OS.
Why is it important
We are providing a set of helper classes called the JZOS toolkit. This API toolkit helps Java developers make use of unique mainframe services right inside their Java applications. services like: accessing traditional mainframe data sets, submitting jobs, communicating with the system console, interop with COBOL or Assembler transaction data.
This guide will go through some examples and highlight some of the steps that are needed to deploy Java applications on the mainframe.
Real-life scenario – User Story
As a Java developer for an insurance company, I am tasked with creating a batch processing application that read, write, and maintain a list of claims using z/OS mainframe system and storage.
