Data Studio Team Request’s Input: Java Data Tools on z/OS

Posted by Kim May on February 5, 2009 under Uncategorized.

Bryan Smith of the Data Studio Team asked us to reach out to blog readers to gather feedback.  See his note below:

“We are investigating implementing some server-side functions in our data tools that would run in a Java runtime on z/OS, and I would appreciate getting your feedback to help us with this planning work.

Do you have the “IBM SDK for z/OS Java 2″ installed on all of your z/OS systems where you would be running your IBM DB2 tools?  If you’re a DBA, you may need to ask your system programmer or, since you need this for Java stored procedures, if you know you have Java stored procedures, you know you have it. If you’re not sure if you have any Java stored procedures, you can run this query:

SELECT SCHEMA, NAME, CREATEDBY, LANGUAGE, ROUTINETYPE, SPECIFICNAME, WLM_ENVIRONMENT
FROM SYSIBM.ROUTINES
WHERE LANGUAGE = ‘JAVA’;
If yes, what level(s) of the SDK do you have installed?
Do you have zAAPs on the LPARs you would run the tools on?
If no (that is, you don’t have the SDK installed), do you foresee any problems installing that as a prereq for a DB2 for z/OS tool product?
Any comments about our using Java on z/OS?

You can send your feedback directly to me at bfsmith at us.ibm.com.
Thanks a lot!”
