Abstract: Back in 2014, IBM made available z/OS Connect V1.0, which provided a basic REST-handling capability with integration to backend systems such as CICS and IMS.
In December of 2015 IBM announced z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition 2.0, which is a separately licensed and priced product with several key functional enhancements over V1.0. This Techdoc will be the zGrowth team's repository for collateral related to z/OS Connect EE V2.0.
