This course will be of interest to CICS system administration and technical support personnel. It does include some hands-on work in the basic setup of WAS LP under CICS TS.
You have been working in CICS TS administration for a while now, but have never implemented any of the newer modernization features. This course is ideal for you. We will cover what WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile is to mainframe modernization, plus its setup and use within your CICS TS regions. First we will cover just what WAS LP contains and its purpose in the realm of application deployment. Next we will get into the details of the various configuration files and their location within the CICS product install. Not to worry if you have never used UNIX System Services, we plan to provide the necessary basics for you to work with USS. Then we will cover the configuration options and potential impact on your environment. We then proceed to startup CICS with the basic WAS LP server enabled, includes configuration of application deployment facilities. Then we move to using z/OS Explorer to deploy a predefined application. Finally we will cover some basic performance and problem resolution topics. All-in-all one complete day effort to implement Liberty profile.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Understand the components of WAS LP.
- Determine what it might take to implement WAS LP at your site.
- Implement the base WAS LP in our test CICS TS environments.
- Gain some basic knowledge about how your developers will deploy their applications.
