PAST WEBINAR: plus+Pack Tips and Tricks II: Hands-On Examples of IDz and SEA Eclipse Plug-Ins

IDz is IBM’s Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for mainframe developers, and its main function is to streamline the z/OS development process and modernize the conventional TSO/ISPF user interface, developed in the early 70s, into a structured and contemporary Graphical User Interface. This new framework not only empowers TSO developers and others, but also simplifies maintenance and support tasks.

Development and Technical Support Manager Surveys show that there are two human factors, or opposing forces, in the mainframe workplace to consider when adopting this technology: the skilled workers, many of whom grew up with the platform (baby boomers), and younger IT professionals entering the mainframe workforce.

In this webinar we will explore some valuable and practical IDz functions when working with JCL and how SEA PlugIn empowers and improve and its quality. These notions or ideas can be also exploited in other IDE solutions such as Compuware Topaz Workbench and others.

We will explore:

  • How to change the appearance of the IDz workspace
  • Using IDE as a focal point
  • SEA PlugIn examples
  • Using Snippets
  • Creating TSO commands
