Overview

Top rule

The Java™ language is a general-purpose, portable object-oriented programming language widely used for modern enterprise applications and digital transformation. Supported by a strong community of developers, Java code can be used to efficiently build batch and transactional applications, microservices, and more, by leveraging the abundance of Java APIs, libraries, and frameworks. Java is well-integrated with IBM® z/OS® middleware. This level of integration enables a plethora of architectural options for building business solutions. In addition, Java code can execute on IBM zIIP processor engines that can provide a cost-effective mechanism for running Java workloads on z/OS.

IBM Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11, formerly known as IBM 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition, is certified with the Java Compatibility Kit as a fully compliant Java product. This rebranding aligns the naming for Java on the z/OS platform with that on other platforms where OpenJDK class libraries are similarly powered by the Eclipse OpenJ9 JVM technology. This offering includes the IBM z/OS platform ports of the OpenJDK Java 11 class libraries and the Eclipse OpenJ9 Java virtual machine (JVM), giving z/OS developers the capability to use new Java language features and currency with the Java community. Furthermore, this compliance can enable developers to confidently port Java applications developed on distributed platforms to z/OS.

Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11 fulfills the statement of direction in Software Announcement 220-008, dated April 7, 2020.

Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11 includes the following features and enhancements:

  • Delivers a full-featured Java SDK that supports the Java SE 11 specification on the IBM z/OS platform
  • Supports the Java Platform Module System specification
  • Contains the community OpenJDK implementation with the latest Eclipse OpenJ9 virtual machine
  • Enables you to exploit new capabilities available with z/OS V2.4 and z/OS V2.5, and the latest IBM Z hardware
  • Contains a new OpenJCEPlus security provider that can optimize performance through exploitation of cryptographic hardware on IBM Z
  • Contains cryptographic algorithms that are required for Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.3 support in the OpenJCEPlus provider
  • Provides enhanced monitoring and diagnostics

The Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11 is designed to give organizations the following capabilities:

  • Test and deploy Java applications in a 64-bit environment
  • Run Java code on zIIP engines
  • Use valuable z/OS functions such as a Batch Launcher for running Java applications as batch jobs or started tasks, with direct access to traditional z/OS data and key z/OS system services (IBM System Management Facilities, catalog search, log streams, system console, and IBM Workload Manager services, among others)
  • Benefit from general improvements in the Java runtime environment, which can improve application throughput, startup, and ramp-up
  • Benefit from additional reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) enhancements
  • Exploit the IBM z15™ and IBM z14® instruction sets from Java code

The Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11 continues the strong tradition of Java applications on z/OS, exploiting IBM Z hardware features designed to deliver better performance and capabilities. This support includes:

  • Pauseless garbage collection (GC) capability, which is designed to help reduce GC pause times for response-time-sensitive and large heap applications, leveraging the IBM Guarded Storage Facility that was introduced with the z14
  • The Data Access Accelerator library, which provides efficient binary coded decimal operators that exploit the IBM z/Architecture® decimal and vector-packed-decimal instructions
  • Cryptographic acceleration for key algorithms that exploit IBM CP Assist for Cryptographic Functions (CPACF) and vector hardware instructions
  • Transparent exploitation of IBM Hardware Transactional Memory for synchronized regions within multithreaded application code
  • Automated JVM adaptation for changing system resource and capacity that is optimized for IBM System Recovery Boost for z/OS by auto-scaling of GC and just-in-time (JIT) compilation threads

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

The product or offering is capable as of the planned availability date, when used in accordance with associated IBM documentation, of satisfying the applicable standards, including the Worldwide Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, European Standard EN 301 349, and US Section 508, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

This program runs on the following IBM Z servers:

  • IBM z15™ Models T01 and T02
  • IBM z14® Models M01-M05
  • IBM z14 Model ZR1
  • IBM z13®
  • IBM z13s®
  • IBM zEnterprise® EC12 (zEC12)
  • IBM zEnterprise BC12 (zBC12)

Software requirements

Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11 requires z/OS V2.4 (5650-ZOS), or later. Specific functions might require additional products not included in z/OS base or its optional features.

Compatibility

Significant changes introduced with Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11 (5655-DGJ) might require existing applications running 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition, V8 (5655-DGJ), or earlier, to be updated.

Client applications that previously used the 31-bit Java SDK might need to be modified to run in 64-bit mode.

The Java module system introduces various changes to the structure, content, and operation of the Java runtime. Some JDK-internal APIs were restructured; applications with such dependencies might need to be migrated to use the supported APIs.

IBM SDK, Java Technology Edition, V8 contains the IBM security implementation. However, IBM Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11 contains the OpenJDK security implementation. Differences between these implementations might require code changes to your applications. For more details, see the Semeru Runtimes security migration guide web page.

For additional information about compatibility and migration, see the documentation for Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11 that will be available on November 19, 2021 in IBM Documentation.

The following are independently orderable and serviced products that can coexist on the same z/OS system:

  • Semeru Runtime Certified Edition for z/OS, Version 11 (5655-DGJ)
  • 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition, V8 (5655-DGH)
  • 31-bit SDK for z/OS, Java Technology Edition, V8 (5655-DGG)

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
