Virginia (Level 4) (Sheraton Seattle)
Speaker: Rosalind Radcliffe(IBM Corporation)
  • Application Development for z/OS (5.8 MB)
  • Ask most people how they write and maintain applications on z/OS and you hear "oh, you use this thing called a green screen" followed by a chuckle.

    In reality, application development for zEnterprise applications has been transformed over the past several years to the point where application developers enjoy the same or better features from integrated development environments as programmers who work on other platforms.

    Advances in remote system communication and interaction, syntax-highlighting, parsing, and code understanding for Assembler, PL/I, C/C++, and COBOL source code, as well as programming assists such as code snippets and templates are all available to application programmers.  Interactive debug of applications, written in multiple programming languages and running in various runtime environments is also possible and can greatly boost programmer productivity.

    Come and learn about how these features can enable application developers who are new to the mainframe to interact with, update, and efficiently enhance mainframe applications.
