WebSphere Application Server for z/OS
Abstract: With the release of WebSphere Application Server Version 8.5 (all platforms), the IBM Compute Grid Java Batch product function has been incorporated into the WAS V8.5 product itself. Install WAS V8.5 and you have the Java Batch function available to you. The WP101783 Techdoc provides details on the function and configuration of the WebSphere Java Batch feature.
For those who have a IBM Compute Grid z/OS V6.1 installation and wish to migrate it to a WAS z/OS V8.5 environment, the following migration guide is offered. It provides a step-by-step process for planning and executing the migration scripts and jobs to achieve the migration. Three migration approaches are provided: (1) migrate in place; (2) add additional nodes along side existing CG V.6.1 nodes; and (3) built a completely new V8.5 cell and migrate the applications.
