|Abstract: IBM WebSphere Java Batch refers to the batch function offered in two products: IBM Compute Grid V8 and IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.5. The Java batch function is identical in both.|
IBM Compute Grid V8 requires a WebSphere Application Server foundation of either Version 7 or Version 8. Compute Grid is added to the WAS runtime through a process called "augmentation." Once added, the Java batch function described in this Techdoc is available to the WAS runtime environment.
IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 8.5 has the Compute Grid V8 function included. Customers who install and configure WAS V8.5 will have the Java batch function identical to Compute Grid V8. No augmentation is required.
The following documentation describes IBM WebSphere Java Batch function, starting from a high-level overview and working down to more detail.
There is a general focus on z/OS in this content, but much of the function is common across platforms.
Technical / Executive Overview Brochures
Note: these brochures, printed in color on glossy paper, results in a very nice brochure for briefings and meetings.

This WP102783 Techdoc previously contained information about Compute Grid V6.1.3 and the Batch Feature Pack.
Some of the documents that existed before are preserved here.

z/OS Scheduler and Distributed WCG
The purpose of this document is to describe how to schedule batch jobs from z/OS into a WXD CG environment on a distributed platform by means of the WSGRID native connector that is provided as part of the WebSphere Extended Deployment Compute Grid for z/OS.

Note: the WSGRID interface is consistent from past releases to the present, so this information is still applicable.
Note: the general concepts provided in these videos still apply.
