Overview
Bottom rule

Java is a very popular, general-purpose, highly portable, object-oriented language widely used for application software and web-based applications. It is designed to have as few hardware and platform dependencies as possible, and is an ideal programming language useful in developing new and extending traditional web-based applications, and/or porting other applications to your System z® platform. The 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition is also useful in helping developers who want to take advantage of the Java application programming interfaces (APIs) for z/OS, write or run Java applications across multiple platforms, or use Java to access System z data.

The 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition Version 7 is the latest version of this software development kit (SDK). It is designed to be compliant with the Java Standard Edition 7 (Java SE 7) APIs. With 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition V7 you may:

  • Test and deploy Java applications in a 31-bit environment
  • Use Java SE 7 APIs
  • Continue the "write once, run anywhere" Java paradigm
  • Leverage IBM System z Application Assist Processors (zAAPs) or IBM System z Integrated Information Processors (zIIPs), with the zAAP on zIIP capability introduced with z/OS V1.11, to run eligible Java work
  • Leverage traditional System z benefits: scalability, reliability, availability, and serviceability
  • Use valuable z/OS security and JZOS functionality
  • Enable your Java applications to exploit added z196 instructions

In addition, you may use the 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition V7 with the newly announced z/OS V1.13 Batch Runtime (a new base component of z/OS) to integrate and modernize your COBOL batch applications with Java. The z/OS Batch Runtime provides the framework for Java to COBOL interoperability, for transactional updates to DB2®, and for sharing database connections between Java and COBOL, enabling you to extend your COBOL batch applications with Java. This new function is intended to help you reduce costs while improving business agility and the operational efficiency of your batch environment (see Software Announcement 211-252, dated July 12, 2011).

The program will be available from the IBM System z Java website and on tape from IBM Software Delivery and Fulfillment (SDF). It is a no-charge product.

Compatibility

IBM 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition V7 (5655-W43) has similar functions to IBM 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition Version 6 Release 0 Modification 1 (5655-R31) with the following differences:

  • The X11 libraries are now dynamically linked, instead of being statically linked. z/OS V1.10 Communications Server and later releases of z/OS include the X11 libraries. Java applications do not have to be changed. Dynamic linking will make the z/OS Java SE 7 product consistent with the linking already used on other IBM platform SDKs.
  • For best performance for most clients, the default garbage collection policy remains GENCON, the new default in IBM 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition Version 6 Release 0 Modification 1. However, customers migrating directly from IBM SDK 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition V6.0.0 or earlier will be moving to a product with a different garbage collection policy default (GENCON) and may still require additional garbage collection tuning for optimal performance. For additional information, see the IBM User Guide for Java v7 on z/OS that will be available at general availability at
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/javasdk/v7r0/index.jsp

The following are independently orderable and serviced products that can coexist on the same z/OS system:

  • 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition Version 6 Release 0 Modification 1 (5655-R31).
  • 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition Version 6 Release 0 Modification 0 (5655-R31).
  • 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition, Version 6 Release 0 Modification 1 (5655-R32).
  • 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition Version 6 Release 0 Modification 0 (5655-R32).
  • 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java 2 Technology Edition V5 (5655-N99).
  • 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java 2 Technology Edition V5 (5655-N98).
  • SDK for z/OS, Java 2 Technology Edition V1.4 (5655-I56), withdrawn from marketing effective September 29, 2008. Note: Service is planned to be discontinued September 30, 2011.

Most Java applications executed on IBM 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition, V6 (5655-R31) are expected to run unchanged on 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition V7, provided that they do not use deprecated Java SE 6 APIs. Additionally, in some cases, because of a small number of incompatibilities introduced between Java SE 6 and Java SE 7, some applications may have to change.

Limitations

Input Method Framework (IMF) is not supported.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage® Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the Program, except for those servers from which the Program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the Program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies. Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.
