This course provides an integrated view of using IBM zEnterprise systems to prepare students to take the IBM System Z Mastery test. An overview for zEnterprise hardware concepts, z/OS operating system concepts, and interactive facilities, such as TSO/E, ISPF and UNIX will be presented. The roles of virtual and physical storage, LPARs, Parallel Sysplex, z/VM, and cluster technologies to provide scalability and continuous availability within zEnterprise systems are discussed. Students will be provided hands-on experiences using z/FS data sets, ISPF, SDSF, JCL, and JES3. A batch COBOL application will be edited, compiled, linked, and executed and debugged. CICS applications, WebSphere (J2EE) applications, and WebSphere MQ services will be compared as alternatives to zEnterprise interfaces, middleware and OLTP transactional services. An overview of system programming and SMP/E, zEnterprise database management systems, clients and utilities, e.g., DB2, IMS, SPUFI, QMF, z/OS HTTP web server, VTAM, TCP/IP, and RACF (IBM Security Server) will be introduced. Access to a zEnterprise system, hands-on exercises, and online support materials are important components of this course.
