WebSphere Application Server for z/OS







Abstract: The acronym "SCA" stands for "Service Component Architecture." It is an open-standard application model for the development of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) programs.

"Feature Packs" are a way to introduce additional functionality into a WebSphere Application Server environment. They allow users of WebSphere Application Server to choose what additional function is added to their runtime environment. Feature Packs are optional by nature; you install and use if you need that function. Otherwise, you do not use it.

For WebSphere Application Server for z/OS Version 7, Feature Packs are introduced as part of the "Optional Materials" FMID (JIWO700). The Feature Pack for SCA was made available with PTF UK41977.

There are several things that must be done to bring the Feature Pack for SCA into a WebSphere Application Server for z/OS Version 7 environment. This White Paper covers those:

o Highlights of the SMP/E installation of JIWO700 and the Feature Pack for SCA files
o How to update the WebSphere Customization Tools (WCT) to the 7.0.0.1 level, as well as the application of a necessary patch to 7.0.0.1 so the Feature Pack for SCA extension to the WCT can be installed
o How to use the updated WCT to generate the jobs to perform a "stacked create" (runtime+SCA in one set of jobs) or "augmentation" (add SCA to an existing runtime)
