z/OS application development with RDz

Traditional mainframe application development for batch applications or on-line transactions has been done for decades using the TSO/ISPF environment. IBM's RDz (Rational Developer for z Systems - actually called IDz or IBM Developer for z Systems) facilitates the development process by offering a complete integrated workbench for coding, testing and debugging these applications. The development will be done locally, but at any stage with a connection to the remote z/OS.

In this course, participants learn:


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.

Intended for

Application programmers who are going to develop online and/or batch applications using the RDz COBOL and/or PL/I features.


The students should be experienced in COBOL (see COBOL programming - part 1) or PL/I (see PL/I programming: fundamentals course). Basic knowledge of Db2 and CICS is an advantage.

Main topics

Training method

Theory is kept to a minimum. The delegate spends most of the time on developing and testing COBOL (or PL/I) applications interactively.


2 days.

top!! (, )
Dit is een goede cursus goed gegeven door Gie (, )
het begin van de 1ste dag was (volgens mij) wat overbodig, zie het nut niet in van de uitleg rond eclips. misschien de tijd beter genomen/gebruikt om de rest iets trager uit te leggen , maar snap wel dat er een massa leerstof is. Verder super. (, )
ma vision des possibilités offerts par RDZ est beaucoup plus claire (, )
Correspond à ce que j'attendais (, )
Goed, maar veel voor 2 dagen. (, )
Très bon cours, temps bien reparti, adaptation à notre platforme exellente. Tous les standards sont en train de se mettre en place. C'était difficile pour le professeur de connaître nos standards. Très gros effort de la part de professeur. (, )
prima als overzicht van alle mogelijkheden (, )
vlot, overzichtelijk (, )
Inhoudelijk goed, maar moest wel veel te snel gaan (, )
