WebSphere Application Server for z/OS
Abstract: WebSphere Application Server for z/OS Version 7 is the latest offering from IBM.
For V6 we published Techdoc PRS1331 to hold the "Planning Spreadsheets" for that version of WebSphere z/OS. That Techdoc still exists.
While WebSphere Application Server for z/OS V7 is in many ways like the earlier versions, it still called for a new spreadsheet because of some new design elements and some new ports. We decided to create a new Techdoc to hold the V7 spreadsheets.
The spreadsheets are attached here. There are three different spreadsheets. An explanation of what each offers is provided with each spreadsheet copy.
John Cowel (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the author of these spreadsheets.
Jeff Mierzejewski of IBM WebSphere Development and Test was a key contributor to the design and testing of the new V7 featuers of the spreadsheet.
Note: These spreadsheets work with OpenOffice as well.
Network Deployment Cell
This is the spreadsheet used to create the standard things we've become familiar with:
DMGR -- create a Deployment Manager node
Standalone -- create a Standalone Server node
Federate -- federate a Standalone Server into a DMGR
Empty Managed Node -- create a node that has no server defined initially
Cell -- create a DMGR+AppServer_Node in one set of jobs
Job Manager -- new in V7, it's part of the "Flexible Management" features.
