IBM® Integrated Solution for System z Development Trial is a free, cloud-based, hands-on environment that allows you to develop and test z/OS applications in a guided "tinker, test, and try" sandbox environment. The z/OS environment is powered by Rational Development and Test Environment for System z. No downloading or installation required.
The IBM Integrated Solution for System z offers a modern solution for System z and multiplatform development, team collaboration, unit test, analysis, and software change and configuration management. It includes all the capabilities that developers require to accomplish their daily tasks, and help your teams:
A collection of IBM Rational products provide the foundation for the IBM Integrated Solution for System z Development. The solution includes the latest versions of:
- Rational Developer for System z, an integrated development environment for mainframe and multiplatform applications
- Rational Team Concert, for lean, collaborative lifecycle management
- Rational Development and Test Environment for System z, a z/OS development and unit test environment
- Rational Asset Analyzer for application discovery and analysis
The solution is meant to be adopted incrementally—what should drive your adoption is the most pressing problems that you need to solve. Therefore, the trial includes a guided test drive that will let you try individual components of the solution. You can use your own code to try out other development scenarios.
Experience how easy it is to improve the effectiveness of your traditional COBOL and PL/I development, maintenance, and support processes. You can experiment with code you have in other programming languages as well—REXX, Java language (running on z/OS), Assembler programs or system exits, and so on.
