IBM z/TPF Beta

Version: Beta

IBM z/Transaction Processing Facility is a high-performance and high-reliability transaction processing operating system for airline, rail, and hotel reservations, and financial transactions systems.  

The z/TPF Deploy beta plug-in runs a ZOLDR LOAD command and then a ZOLDR ACTIVATE command on the target z/TPF system. The z/TPF Undeploy beta plug-in runs a ZOLDR DEACTIVATE command and then a ZOLDR DELETE command on the target z/TPF system. The z/TPF Commit beta plug-in runs a ZOLDR ACCEPT command on the target z/TPF system. Together these three plug-ins for IBM UrbanCode™ Deploy can automate the build, promotion, and deployment of artifacts to z/TPF test and production systems, as part of continuous delivery environment. 



These plug-ins are in beta. The interface, functions, and processes of the plug-ins might change. This information is for planning purposes only. The information herein is subject to change or removal without notice before the products described may become available.
