Downloadable files


Abstract

Note: This page is no longer being updated. Contemporary builds of the Plug-in are only available via the standard mechanisms such as Passport Advantage and Fix Central.

Download Description

WebSphere Application Server for z/OS V6.1 and V7.0 Plug-ins are available for download by WebSphere Application Server licensed customers. The downloads are not Interim Fixes but are copies of the z/OS Plug-ins that are contained in the most recent maintenance PTFs.

Prerequisites

An IBM WebSphere Application Server V6.1 and V7.0 for z/OS Plug-in must be associated with an IBM HTTP Server that runs on z/OS. There are two HTTP Servers for z/OS that are readily available:

  1. IBM HTTP Server for z/OS V5.3: a 31 bit HTTP Server that is an element of z/OS and is shipped with z/OS. This HTTP Server will run both V6.1 and V7.0 of the WebSphere Application Server for z/OS Plug-in (31 bit plug-in).

  2. IBM HTTP Server V6.1: a 64 bit HTTP Server (powered by Apache) that ships with WebSphere Application Server v6.1 for z/OS. This HTTP Server will only run the WebSphere Application Server V6.1 for z/OS Plug-in (64 bit plug-in).

  3. IBM HTTP Server V7.0: a 64 bit HTTP Server (powered by Apache) that ships with WebSphere Application Server and is also available on the IBM Ported Tools for z/OS Web site. This HTTP Server will only run the WebSphere Application Server V7.0 for z/OS Plug-in (64 bit plug-in).

Use the Download package section, listed below, to determine which WebSphere Application Server for z/OS Plug-in best fits your needs.

Installation Instructions

  1. Click on the z/OS Plug-in that best fits your needs to start the download.

  2. Use FTP, or a similar tool, to move the downloaded file to the /tmp directory on the z/OS machine on which you plan to install the Plug-in.

    All file movement must be in the BINARY mode.

  3. Un-pax the downloaded file into temporary storage by issuing the following command:

    pax  -rzvf <downloaded file>

  4. Consult the "Instructions for installation and configuration" section below to select an Information Center article regarding the Plug-in version and HTTP Server that you are using for instructions on how to install and configure the z/OS Plug-in.

    Within those instructions, the location of the plug-in is listed as the WebSphere Application Server app_server_root/bin/ directory. You must replace app_server_root/bin/ with the location of the temporary directory that holds the unpaxed downloaded file (from step 3).

For example:

On the download machine:
For this example the software to be used is HTTP Server for z/OS V5.3 and WebSphere Application Server for z/OS V7.0. Therefore the plug-in module to select is ihs390WAS70Plugin_http.so.z. For this example the down-load machine is a PC running some variation of Microsoft Windows.
  1. Click on ihs390WAS70Plugin_http.so.z and the download should start. The browser dialog box will appear prompting you to "open" or "save" the downloaded file.

  2. Click on save. You will be prompted to input a location to store the downloaded file.

  3. Set c:\temp as the destination directory.

  4. Open a DOS command window and change to the c:\temp directory.

  5. FTP the file ihs390WAS70Plugin_http.so.z to the /tmp directory of the z/OS machine. You must use BINARY mode.

    NOTE: There are tools other than FTP that can be used to move files from the PC and the z/OS machine. No matter what tool is used the file movement from the PC to the z/OS machine must be in BINARY mode.

On The z/OS machine OMVS command line:
  1. Create a temporary work area and go to that area:

    mkdir /tmp/plugin <ENTER>
    cd /tmp/plugin <ENTER>

  2. Un-pax the downloaded file into the temporary work area with the following command:

    pax -rzvf /tmp/ihs390WAS70Plugin_http.so.z <ENTER>

  3.  Instructions for installation and configuration:

    Note: The Information Center instructions refer to the location of the plug-in as WebSphere Application Server app_server_root/bin/ directory. You must substitute /tmp/plugin as the location of the plug-in.
