zOS Connect EE
Efficient and scalable APIs for contemporary mobile and cloud applications
IBM® z/OS® Connect Enterprise Edition (EE) V2.0 extends the value of applications
that run on z/OS by allowing efficient and scalable APIs for contemporary mobile
and cloud applications to be easily created. z/OS Connect EE V2.0 can help to
deliver benefits for an enterpriser.
Provides intuitive tooling that enables a developer, with or without z/OS-skills,
to create RESTful APIs from traditional z/OS-based assets.
Allows mobile and cloud application developers to incorporate z/OS data and transactions
into their applications without the need to understand z/OS subsystems.
Delivers RESTful APIs as a discoverable, first-class resource with Swagger 2.0 descriptions
that are ready for consumption by application developers, and for integration
with API management solutions.
Provides intuitive tooling that enables a developer with or without z/OS-skills to create
RESTful APIs from traditional z/OS-based assets.
Includes a new API package artifact that encapsulates the RESTful API, together with necessary
detail to invoke underlying services in the z/OS subsystems.
Supports standard JSON message format with translation to and from the required native
format of z/OS subsystems.
Integrates with IBM API Management for enterprise-class API management that covers consumer
registration, API security controls, and version control.
This charm is part of the IBM Internet of Things Analytics on System Z bundle.
This bundle deploys Node.js StrongLoop, Node.js NodeRed,
MongoDB, Spark, and zOS Connect targetted for the
System Z (s390 architecture).
Leveraging the s390 architecture high efficiency I/O
and uptime IoT requests are processed through Spark
and a Mongo data store with Node.js providing API
access and data handling. zOS Connect provides additional
access to System Z capabilities.
