WebSphere Application Server for z/OS

Abstract: WebSphere Application Server is a key IBM product and many IBMers have experience with using it on Windows and Unix systems. z/OS is an IBM operating system used by many of IBM largest customers. WebSphere administrators who have only worked with WebSphere on Windows and/or Unix often view WebSphere on z/OS as being too different and too hard to learn. This Techdoc aims to allay those concerns and show that administration of WebSphere on z/OS is largely similar to Windows and Unix but also explain the key differences. Additionally this Techdoc will highlight the advantages of running WebSphere on z/OS including features of WebSphere V7 only available on z/OS and the benefits that z/OS operating systems features such as Parallel Sysplex provide.
