z/TPF support for MongoDB

With z/TPF support for MongoDB, remote distributed platforms can access and update data in a z/TPF database by using the MongoDB query language. You do not need to change z/TPF application code to use z/TPF support for MongoDB.

MongoDB is a NoSQL database and treats data as documents. MongoDB documents are described by using JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), which is an open and human- and machine-readable standard to facilitate data exchange. The z/TPF database is not a NoSQL database, but you can create a JSON document from the data in the z/TPF database.
