Overview

z/OS®.e is a specially priced offering of z/OS that provides select functions at an attractive price. It is designed to help you exploit the fast-growing world of next-generation business applications by making the deployment of new application workloads on the IBM eServer zSeries® 800 (z800) and zSeries 890 (z890) servers competitively priced. This offering brings new levels of affordability to enterprise and Web-based applications while capitalizing on the capabilities of zSeries technology.

z/OS.e V1.6 is the fourth release of z/OS.e. z/OS.e V1.6 uses the same code base (customized with new system parameters) as z/OS V1.6 and its follow-on releases. It invokes an operating environment that is comparable with z/OS in qualities of service, management, and reporting. Also, z/OS.e invokes the same z800 and z890 hardware functionality that you would get with full-function z/OS.

More details on z/OS.e can be found at

z/OS.e V1.6 continues to provide leadership in innovation and enhances the value of zSeries. In addition to z/OS.e V1.6 improvements previously announced in Software Announcement 204-016 , dated February 10, 2004, z/OS.e V1.6 offers:

  • Support for IBM eServer zSeries Application Assist Processor (zAAP)

Description

Delivers select function of z/OS at an attractive price

z/OS.e has the same code base as z/OS, customized with new system parameters. To learn about what z/OS V1.6 offers, refer to Software Announcement 204-180 , dated August 10, 2004.

z/OS.e can help you exploit the fast-growing world of new next-generation workloads and deploy your e-business applications on one of the most robust platforms in the world at a competitive cost. This program is ideal if you like the qualities of service of the mainframe and have considered running more applications on the z/OS platform. This cost-effectiveness lets you harness some of the functional robustness of z/OS and use it to enhance e-business solutions.

When IPLed, z/OS.e V1.6 invokes an operating environment for new workloads only such as e-business transaction processing or database serving workloads. z/OS.e will not execute CICS®, IMS™, COBOL, or FORTRAN applications. However, precompiled COBOL DB2® stored procedures, and other precompiled applications using the Language Environment® preinitialization interface (CEEPIPI) are supported. You may not use the following compilers: COBOL, PL/I, VisualAge® PL/I, and FORTRAN. However, z/OS.e supports execution of precompiled PL/I and VisualAge PL/I applications. For z/OS.e, and for IBM programs in general, only supported IBM programs are licensed to run on z/OS.e. Refer to the minimum releases of IBM software products that run with z/OS.e in z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation (GA22-7504) for actual IBM products supported. Note that the list of supported products is regularly updated and may change over time without notice.

z/OS.e will execute applications written in Java™ and C/C++. In short, z/OS.e is an ideal way to enter, exploit, and profit from the world of next-generation applications.

New next-generation workloads that exploit the qualities of service of the mainframe and run unencumbered under z/OS.e V1.6 include, but are not limited to:

  • WebSphere® Application Server for z/OS (WAS V5.1) with DB2 for z/OS V8
  • Software Development Kit (SDK) with Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition
  • C/C++
  • Lotus® Domino™ V5
  • SAP R/3
  • Siebel

For the latest z/OS.e product catalog for ServerPac and SystemPac, visit the following Web site and select z/OS.e.

Products that are unavailable via ServerPac or SystemPac, such as Lotus Domino (5655-B86), can also be separately ordered for use with z/OS.e.

Not for traditional workloads

If you choose z/OS.e, you are not licensed to run the following traditional workloads on z/OS.e:

  • CICS
  • IMS
  • COBOL (except for precompiled COBOL DB2 stored procedures or other precompiled applications using the Language Environment preinitialization interface (CEEPIPI))
  • FORTRAN

Regarding IBM programs in general, only supported IBM programs are licensed to run on z/OS.e. Refer to the minimum releases of IBM software products that run with z/OS.e in z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation for actual IBM products supported. Note that the list of supported products may change without notice.

Product positioning

z/OS.e offers many of the same technical functions coupled with the superb qualities of service as z/OS — targeted specifically for new workloads such as enterprise, Web-based, and data management applications.

In Software Withdrawal Announcement 903-149 , dated August 5, 2003, IBM announced the end of service for z/OS V1.4 and z/OS.e V1.4 will be extended to March 31, 2007. This date is the same as the end of service date planned for z/OS.e V1.5.

On February 10, 2004, IBM announced that z/OS V1.4 and z/OS.e V1.4 will remain orderable until September 9, 2004. To allow for adequate order processing time, it is recommended that z/OS.e V1.4 orders be submitted by August 31, 2004. This end-of-marketing date for z/OS.e V1.4 is the same as the end-of-marketing date planned for z/OS.e V1.5.

The z/OS.e V1.4 z990 Coexistence Update Feature and the z/OS.e V1.4 Consoles Enhancements feature will remain orderable until December, 2006, three months prior to end of service.

These statements represent current intentions of IBM. IBM development plans are subject to change or withdrawal without further notice.

In z/OS.e V1.6, System SSL Java class support is being removed. Applications wanting to use SSL function through Java classes must use Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE). Information about JSSE can be found at

Note: The WebSphere Application Server V4.0.1 for z/OS and OS/390® will not be supported on z/OS.e V1.6. In addition, service for WebSphere Application Server V4.0.1 for z/OS and OS/390 will be discontinued on April 30, 2005, as announced in Software Withdrawal Announcement 904-021 , dated February 3, 2004. Customers currently running WebSphere Application Server V4.0.1 for z/OS and OS/390 are strongly encouraged to migrate to WebSphere Application Server V5 for z/OS now in order to avoid the need to simultaneously upgrade the WebSphere Application Server and z/OS.e levels when z/OS.e V1.6 becomes available.

Refer to Software Announcement 204-017 , dated August 10, 2004, for all descriptions of z/OS V1.6 Preview text.

Statement of direction

IBM statement of direction update on SNA support in 2004.

  • It is the intent of IBM to support VTAM® in z/OS Communications Server for the foreseeable future. Customers have a substantial investment in 3270 and SNA applications. We continue to support and enhance VTAM's capabilities while integrating it with new technologies. IBM has no plans at this time to discontinue SNA support in z/OS Communications Server. As of June 2004, customers can, for selected SNA workloads, use Communications Server products for Linux™, Linux on IBM eServer® zSeries, Microsoft™ Windows , and AIX® to replace some of the old SNA infrastructure components, such as the IBM 3745/46 or other channel-attached SNA controllers. z/OS Communications Server can replace some SNA Network Interconnect (SNI) workloads using Enterprise Extender and Extended Border Node functions.

    It is the intent of IBM to introduce an additional solution in 2005 that uses NCP (Network Control Program) software running within Linux on zSeries. The intent is to provide a migration path for customers who use traditional SNA (including SNA Network Interconnect (SNI)) to communicate with their business partners. This solution can allow them to continue using traditional SNA without a dependency on IBM 3745 and 3746 Communications Controller hardware.

IBM plans to take the following actions effective in 2005:

  • IBM intends to provide a VSAM Java database connectivity (JDBC) Connector. A JDBC Connector implements a Java application programming interface that is designed to allow you to write Java-based applications that read and write VSAM data without having to do VSAM programming or use copies of existing data. These applications can access VSAM data, at the same time as other applications, when deployed in WebSphere, DB2, and UNIX® Systems Services environments. When used with the optional DFSMStvs (Transactional VSAM Services) feature, the VSAM JDBC Connector can allow WebSphere applications to participate in coordinated commit processing.

Notable change:

  • With z/OS.e V1.6, Text Search is no longer made available as a base element of z/OS.e. Instead, it will be made available for Web download as z/OS and z/OS.e Text Search under a restricted license. This is a change to the statement of direction made in Software Announcement 203-266 , dated October 7, 2003, which stated that with z/OS.e V1.6, the Text Search base element would be removed and no replacement would be provided. The Text Search element has been removed from the z/OS.e product. However, the Text Search function is still required and licensed for use only for DB2 UDB Text Extender feature of DB2 Universal Database® for z/OS, Program Number 5625-DB2, as a Web deliverable named z/OS and z/OS.e Text Search.

    Before you use the DB2 UDB Text Extender feature, you must download and install the z/OS and z/OS.e Text Search Web deliverable on z/OS.e V1.6.

IBM plans to take the following actions effective with z/OS.e V1.7:

  • With z/OS V1.7, the C/C++ Compiler and Language Environment plan to support the ISO C99 standard. This support includes new language features and library functions designed to improve the usability of the programming environment and portability of programs across different platforms
  • Support for ISAM data sets will be withdrawn. When this support is withdrawn, you will no longer be able to process ISAM data sets other than to delete them. The ISAM Compatibility Interface will remain available to help you migrate applications to VSAM without application changes.
  • Support for JES2 compatibility mode will be withdrawn. As of z/OS.e V1.7, JES2 will no longer support compatibility with pre-z/OS V1.2 systems. The $ACTIVATE command, which converts the JES2 checkpoint from z2 mode to R4 mode (compatibility mode), will be removed. Before installing z/OS.e V1.7, you will need to do one of the following:
    • Use the $ACTIVATE command to convert the JES2 checkpoint to z2 mode
    • Offload the SPOOL, cold start JES2 z/OS.e V1.7, and reload the jobs on the new SPOOL
  • The z/OS.e Optional Source Code media features will not be offered in z/OS.e V1.7. The last release offering these materials will be z/OS V1.6 and z/OS.e V1.6. These features contain macros and source code for some programs in the z/OS.e BCP, BDT base, BDT SNA NJE, DFSMS, BCP JPN, and Security Server RACF® elements.
  • Support for the STEPCAT and JOBCAT JCL statements will be withdrawn. There are other facilities in DFSMSdfp™ that allow catalog requests to be directed to specific catalogs, and the utility of these two JCL statements has been drastically reduced by the implementation of System-Managed Storage and the placement of Unit Control Blocks (UCBs) above the 16 MB line. When this support is withdrawn, any remaining JCL that uses these two statements will have to be changed.
  • The OS/390 V2.10 C/C++ compiler is planned to be removed from the C/C++ without Debug Tool feature, leaving only the ISO C/C++ compiler. Since z/OS V1.2, the OS/390 V2.10 C/C++ compiler has been shipped in addition to the strategic ISO C/C++ compiler that is also provided with z/OS and z/OS.e. This OS/390 V2.10 C/C++ compiler serves as a migration aid to the newest ISO C/C++ compiler.

IBM plans to take the following actions in a future release:

  • Support for the VSAM IMBED, REPLICATE, and KEYRANGE attributes will be withdrawn. No supported release of z/OS, z/OS.e, or OS/390 allows you to define new VSAM data sets with these attributes. Using them for existing data sets can waste DASD space and can often degrade performance. When this support is withdrawn, you will not be able to process data sets with these attributes.
  • The English and Japanese ISPF panels will be removed from DFSORT™. This limited function interactive facility will no longer be provided, and there will be no replacement. All other previously supported methods for invoking DFSORT will still be supported, such as batch invocation, invocation from a program, etc.

These statements represent current intentions of IBM.

Any reliance on these Statements of Direction are at the relying party's sole risk and will not create any liability or obligation for IBM.

All statements regarding IBM's plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice.

Technical information

Hardware requirements

z/OS.e V1.6 runs exclusively on the IBM eServer® zSeries z800 and zSeries z890 family of servers or comparable non-IBM servers.

Note: The z800 and z890 do not support parallel channels, but do provide an option for you to purchase a parallel channel converter box.

The zSeries 800 and zSeries 890 are for customers who require a cost-competitive server that can process multiple workloads, running concurrently under any of the following operating systems:

  • Linux™
  • VM/ESA®
  • VSE/ESA™
  • TPF
  • z/VM®
  • z/OS
  • z/OS.e

The zSeries 800 and zSeries 890 provide Parallel Sysplex® support. They also support HiperSockets and offer other improved I/O capabilities and capacity compared to the Multiprise® 3000.

For additional information, refer to Hardware Announcement 102-052 , dated February 19, 2002, and Hardware Announcement 104-117 , dated April 7, 2004.

Software requirements

The z/OS.e base is an IPL-able system. Specific functions may require additional products not included in z/OS.e base, or in the optional features of z/OS.e. Refer to z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation (GA22-7504) for a listing of specific software requirements. It is available on the Web

z/OS.e can IPL in LPAR mode only, not basic mode. Therefore, z/OS.e can run in its own LPAR, in multiple LPARs, or as a guest under z/VM running in an LPAR. If one guest is z/OS.e, then other guests can be z/OS.e or Linux. The z/OS.e LPARs must add up to the number of MSUs, that is, the number of engines licensed for z/OS.e.

Customers need to predefine the LPAR name the z/OS.e system is to run in, to "ZOSExxxx." Also, at IPL time you must either enter "LICENSE=Z/OSE" as part of the system parameter or specify LICENSE=Z/OSE in your IEASYSxx member of SYS1.PARMLIB. A z/OS.e system will be delivered with the IEASYS00 member containing the LICENSE=Z/OSE specification.

Coexistence, release migrations, and fallback

z/OS and z/OS.e gives you compatibility and flexibility as you migrate systems in a multisystem configuration by allowing several releases of z/OS or z/OS.e to coexist. This includes non-Parallel Sysplex and Parallel Sysplex multisystem configurations.

Coexistence allows systems within a multisystem configuration to be upgraded to a new release level of z/OS.e one system at a time. This is contingent on the fact that the release you are migrating to can coexist with the lowest release running in your multisystem configuration.

z/OS.e is coexistence-supported with its equivalent z/OS release (as well as any z/OS releases equivalent to any coexistence-supported z/OS.e release) As such, z/OS.e supports the same migration policy as z/OS.

Starting with z/OS.e V1.6, the Coexistence-Migration-Fallback policy aligns with the Service policy. The intention of this policy is to simplify and provide greater predictability to aid in release migrations. IBM intends to continue with the practice of providing service support for each release of z/OS or z/OS.e for three years following its general availability (GA) date. IBM, at its sole discretion, may choose to leave a release supported for more than three years. This Coexistence-Migration-Fallback policy is effective starting with the first release of the new annual release cycle, z/OS and z/OS.e V1.6. In some cases, more than three releases may be coexistence, migration, and fallback supported, if IBM at its sole discretion chooses to provide service support for greater than three years for a release. However, any z/OS or z/OS.e release having three or fewer months of service remaining at the time of GA of a new release will not be coexistence, migration, and fallback supported.

Note: These statements represent current intention of IBM. IBM reserves the right to change or alter the coexistence/migration/fallback policy in the future or to exclude certain releases beyond those stated. IBM development plans are subject to change or withdrawal without further notice. Any reliance on this statement of direction is at the relying party's sole risk and does not create any liability or obligation for IBM.

Migration forward as well as fallback should be made within the same z/OS.e releases supported by the coexistence policy.

The following table shows the releases that are coexistence-supported with z/OS.e V1.6.

Notes

  1. OS/390 V2.9 End of Service was March, 2003.
  2. OS/390 V2.10 End of Service is September, 2004.
  3. z/OS V1.1 End of Service was March, 2004.
  4. z/OS V1.2 End of Service is October, 2004.
  5. Operating system levels beyond z/OS and z/OS.e V1.6 represent current intentions of IBM.

This consistent coexistence, migration, and fallback policy applies to release migrations for all configurations, whether they are:

  • Single system configurations
  • Individual systems within a multisystem configuration
  • Cases where a simultaneous IPL is used to migrate all systems in a multisystem configuration at the same time

Since each release of z/OS.e can normally be ordered only until the next release of z/OS.e becomes orderable, it is very important that you order the required z/OS.e release you need for migration and coexistence while still available.

For additional information on z/OS coexistence and release migration information, refer to z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation (GA22-7504) at

For migrations inside the IBM migration and coexistence policy, IBM Global Services (IGS) has fee-based offerings that provide a PTF on demand service for toleration and coexistence maintenance based upon a customer's SMP/E Consolidated Software Inventory (CSI). With these offerings, you specify the release of z/OS, z/OS.e, or other products, or hardware (for example, 2066) to which you are migrating, and all configured toleration/coexistence maintenance for your current system (as specified by your CSI) will be delivered to you as a customized package in electronic or physical format. This is provided through the S/390® SoftwareXcel offering, via the Service Request and Delivery (SRD) function.

IGS also provides hands-on fee-based services to assess whether a migration outside the migration and coexistence policy might be possible. For more information on the migration services that IGS provides for both inside and outside the migration and coexistence policy, contact your local IBM sales specialist.

JES coexistence, release migrations, and fallback

You can migrate to the next version of JES2 or JES3 at the same time you migrate to the rest of z/OS. In this way, you benefit directly from the new function provided by the most current JES and enable other elements and features to benefit from this level.

Fallback for z/OS.e is at a system level, rather than an element or feature level. Since you migrate to JES2 or JES3 at the same time you migrate to z/OS.e you cannot back out JES2 or JES3 separately; you can only back out the entire z/OS.e product.

Although you must run the level of JES that comes with z/OS.e, that JES can communicate with certain lower levels of JES running on other z/OS and z/OS.e systems in the same MAS or multisystem complex.

For additional information on z/OS.e JES release migration and coexistence, refer to z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation (GA22-7504) by visiting:

Performance considerations

Performance of z/OS.e V1.6 is expected to be equivalent to the performance of z/OS V1.6 running on equivalent hardware. Information on z/OS V1.6 performance will be available at general availability. You should consult your marketing representative at or after general availability.

  • Fewer installation jobs.

Internet delivery is available for orders placed through ShopzSeries:

ShopzSeries is available in the United States and many other countries.

There are additional driving system requirements for Internet delivery. They are described in z/OS and z/OS.e Planning for Installation .

General availability of ServerPac Internet Delivery is planned for January 10, 2005.

SMP/E enhancements: z/OS V1.6 SMP/E includes the same functions as SMP/E V3.3. SMP/E V3.3 (5655-G44) has been enhanced, with:

  • RECEIVE command support for assigning SOURCEID values to already-received SYSMODs
  • RECEIVE FROMNETWORK support of SOCKS firewalls and secure FTP operations, using the z/OS Communications Server FTP Client
  • Automatic use of IEBCOPY's COPYMOD function for load modules
  • CHECK operand support for the REJECT command
  • Wildcard support in the CSI Query dialog
  • Internet packaging enhancements in GIMZIP and GIMUNZIP, which now support VSAM and non-VSAM data sets as well as UNIX® files and directories, and to allow archives to be extracted into existing data sets
  • A new service routine, GIMGTPKG, to transfer GIMZIP packages without using the RECEIVE FROMNETWORK command

For additional information, refer to Software Announcement 204-176 , dated August 10, 2004.

Customized Offerings Driver: The Customized Offerings Driver (5655-M12) has been updated to support the installation of z/OS.e V1.6 with SMP/E V3.3, the additional driving system PTFs required to install z/OS.e V1.6, and electronic delivery for ServerPac. The Customized Offerings Driver is now at level V2.1.1.

Recommended Service Upgrade (RSU): IBM recommends that you use the Recommended Service Upgrade (RSU) strategy to maintain z/OS.e after installation. RSU is based on Consolidated Service Testing (CS), which uses customer-like workloads in a high-stress sysplex environment to verify key z/OS, WebSphere®, DB2®, CICS®, and other functions. For more information about RSU, refer to

Direct customer support: Direct customer support is provided by IBM Operational Support Services — SoftwareXcel Enterprise Edition or SoftwareXcel Basic. These fee services can help enhance your productivity by providing voice and electronic access into the IBM support organization. IBM Operational Support Services — SoftwareXcel Enterprise Edition or SoftwareXcel Basic Edition will help answer questions pertaining to usage, how to and suspected software defects for eligible products.

Installation and technical support is provided by IBM Global Services. For more information on services, call 888-IBM-4343 (426-4343).

Packaging: When you order z/OS.e V1.6, IBM recommends that you also order all the unpriced optional (export controlled) features that you may need in the future. That is because these features may not be orderable later when you decide you need them. For example, to obtain stronger encryption support (security) for the z/OS.e Integrated Security Services Base Element, the customer must specify the security feature named z/OS.e Security Level 3.

System integrity

IBM will accept APARs where the installation of z/OS.e introduces an exposure to system integrity.

Program services

Central service for suspected defects in z/OS.e code is provided by the IBM Support Center within your geography. On-site (local) support, although available in many geographies, is provided as part of the IBM portfolio of fee-based services.

Service policy

IBM plans to provide service support for each release of z/OS.e for three years following its general availability date. IBM, at its discretion, may choose to leave a release supported for more than three years.

At least twelve months' written notice will be given for z/OS.e prior to the withdrawal of service for a version or release.

z/OS.e no longer supports service for client operating systems whose service is withdrawn by the operating system manufacturer. As an example of the actual implementation of this policy, we will no longer support service for clients running Microsoft™ Windows™ 95.

Coexistence and migration rules apply and should be taken into account in planning future migrations. Refer to the Coexistence, release migrations, and fallback section for additional information.

Security, auditability, and control

Data security and auditability in the z/OS.e environment are enhanced by the functions available in the optional Security Server for z/OS.e feature. The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

Integrated Cryptographic Service Facility (ICSF) provides application programs with callable service interfaces to support the encryption and decryption of data using the cryptographic hardware in the zSeries servers. ICSF adds support for callers running in 64-bit addressing mode. ICSF support for AMODE(64) callers will be available in the ICSF 64-bit Virtual Support for z/OS V1R6 and z/OS.e V1R6 Web deliverable in December 2004. This support is planned to be included in z/OS.e V1.7. A limited set of callable services for AMODE(64) callers will be supported on z990, z900, z800, and z890 processors. They are intended to support System SSL, WebSphere, and Java™. The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.
