The WebSphere team is pleased to announce the availability of a trial of the WebSphere Application Server v8.5 Liberty Profile on z/OS.
The Liberty profile is a highly composable and dynamic application server runtime environment. Its fast restart time, small size, and ease of use makes the Liberty profile a great option for developers building applications that do not require the full Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) environment. Applications built for the Liberty profile can be deployed to full profile WebSphere Application Server editions.
There are unique features within the Liberty profile on z/OS that take advantage of System z qualities of service, such as z/OS security, transactions, and workload management. The trial of the Liberty profile on z/OS provides an opportunity to evaluate the benefits provided by this lightweight and dynamic application server in the context of a z/OS environment.
