Developer for z/OS® is built on a client/server architecture:

  • The server component operates on a z/OS system.
  • The client component is an Eclipse-based workspace that communicates with the remote system.

The Installing topics, the Installing > Host Program Directories topics, and the Configuring > Host configuration topics, which are available in the help, lead you through the installation and configuration tasks that are required before you can successfully use Developer for z/OS. Before you attempt to use the product, ensure that your system administrator installed and configured the required z/OS server tools according to the instructions in these topics.
