Pinned topic J2C / J2EE Connector in Rational Developer for zEnterprise

‏2013-03-07T04:30:42Z |
Is the J2C/J2EE Connector wizard included in Rational Developer for zEnterprise? I am running the evaluation version and cannot find the J2C tools.

(IBM Rational Developer for zEnterprise V8.5 Evaluation Multiplatform Multilingual)

Based on the manuals this is the tool for converting the COMMAREA or any binary string into a Java object with getter/setter methods from COBOL.

Is this included in RDz Enterprise or is Rational Application Developer for Websphere required?

    RDz Enterprise v85 is a "bundle" - and the products (RDz, RAD, etc) should be installed separately but into the same shell.

    In your case, since you are using an Evaluation copy - RAD is probably not bundled. So, for J2C functionality you will need to get RAD for WebSphere.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the response. I didn't see where the zEnterprise version was a tool bundle.

      If you go to the following RDzE link, you will notice "Included components" section pointing to RAD etc..

        Does this mean, if I want to convert a Cobol structure to a Java structure (which we will do often in the system z space), I need to purchase both (very pricey) products?

        If I am using Rational Developer for System z v 9.0, what options to I have to get the J2C tooling?

          For version 9.0 the bundled offering most similar to the aforementioned RD zEnterprise, is named Rational Developer for the Enterprise which gives you RAD, RDz and more.

            I do not see that on our Passport List. Through our Rational rep I was provided instructions to install the RDz 9.0, then download and install in the same platform the RAD 9.0 components. That seems to be working, I did express my frustration on loosing the bundled approach, that made things much simplier (at least for me).

            Thank you for your response.
