z/OS Specific EWM Objects
Special versions of EWM source control objects that apply specifically to z/OS®:
- zProject - represents a type of EWM Eclipse project that contains a z/OS software project.
- zComponent - represents a specialized type of EWM component that contains zFolders.
- zFolder - is an EWM Eclipse folder that represents a z/OS PDS or PDS(E).
- zFile - is a file in a zFolder that represents a z/OS PDS(E) member. The zFile can be saved with a file extension to indicate its source type. In the example that follows, you can see a COBOL (cbl) file and a copybook (cpy) file. This presence of a file extension can save much time when the tool is attempting to classify the source type before it copies it to the correct AD project sub folder.
