Zowe 2.9 System Demo

By | August 7, 2023

Zowe, the integrated and extensible open source framework for z/OS, combines the past and present to build the future of mainframes. Like Mac OS, Windows, and others, Zowe comes with a core set of applications out of the box in combination with the APIs and OS capabilities future applications will depend on.

Zowe offers modern interfaces to interact with z/OS and allows you to work with z/OS in a way that is similar to what you experience on cloud platforms today. You can use these interfaces as delivered or through plug-ins and extensions that are created by clients or third-party vendors.

Each quarter, the Zowe leadership committee (ZLC) hosts a quarterly webinar to discuss updates, milestones and share demos and upcoming events. In June 2023, the ZLC and the Zowe Advisory Committee (ZAC) hosted the webinar and featured:

  • Zowe API Mediation Layer: Support for OpenID Connect (OIDC), API Catalog UI Enhancements, fixes
  • Zowe CLI:  x-LPAR COPY command, fixes
  • Zowe App Framework / Web UI:  Massive desktop / multi-app performance improvements, fixes
  • Zowe Explorer (VS Code): Cancel Jobs for job nodes, Data set creation templates, Custom Credential Manager for K8s, fixes
  • General:  New to you
  • General:  Upcoming Events
