The IBM 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition, Version 7 Release 1 requires:

Software:

This product requires z/OS V1.12 (5694-A01), or later. Specific functions may require specific software levels or features not included in the z/OS base.

For more product details, read the formal announcement.

Compatibility:

In general, any application that ran with a previous version of the SDK should run correctly with IBM 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition, Version 7 Release 1 (5655-W44) Classes that are compiled with this release are not guaranteed to work on previous releases.

The com.ibm.jzos.fields package of the IBM JZOS Batch Toolkit for z/OS is updated to support Data Access Accelerator (DAA) for high performance data marshalling and conversion. DAA support is enabled by default. To disable DAA support, explicitly set the system property com.ibm.jzos.fields.use-daa to false. In addition, the com.ibm.jzos.fields.BinaryAsIntField::setSigned(boolean) and com.ibm.jzos.fields.BinaryAsLongField::setSigned(boolean) APIs have been deprecated. When DAA is enabled, both methods will throw an UnsupportedOperationException. When DAA is disabled, their behavior remain unchanged.
