Zowe Basics


2 hours


Open Mainframe Project’s Zowe is an open source framework for the mainframe that strengthens integration with modern enterprise applications. The Zowe Basics course begins by describing why Zowe is being developed, and the major components that comprise Zowe. Examples show how Zowe is accessed and the types of applications available from the resulting web interface. Scenarios including the use of plug-ins and RESTful Services are also presented, as well as details on the actions that can be performed on z/OS using the Command Line Interface (CLI). The advantages of using Zowe are discussed in detail, emphasizing the benefits of open-source and its access to the mainframe. In later content, a description on how Zowe and its components are started are presented, describing how they interact with each other and the user. Examples explaining how Zowe Plug-Ins are defined and installed, and RESTful services are modified and added are provided to show how Zowe's capabilities can be extended.


This course is primarily aimed at system programmers and developers.
