Abstract 

Java is not a new technology; Java Stored Procedures were introduced to DB2 for z/OS in version 7. With the recent z13 & z14 and its Java improvements, the use of this technology might be extended. Let’s review the concept of Java Stored Procedures in DB2 for z/OS in this presentation, discuss how to write them and introduce the latest enhancements of Java on mainframe.  

Objectives:

•         Recent enhancements of Java technology on mainframes

•         Present benefits of Java Stored Procedures

•         Overview of an environment set-up

•         Writing and deploying Java Stored Procedures

•         Common problems, performance and security considerations

Jan Marek is a 10-year IT professional with the background from software engineering. Starting with mainframe workload automation he is now enjoying the world of DB2 for z/OS as Agile Product Owner in CA DB2 Tools product management team. His area is backup and recovery family of products.

Abstract

As new, traditionally non-mainframe developers start developing on the mainframe, they want to leverage tooling they are familiar with, getting started quickly and easily and working with applications on multiple platforms. 

Software development with preferred IDE’s like Visual Studio Code, Eclipse, and Intellij in conjunction with Git for source code management is pervasive. Having the flexibility to use these tools in a mainframe context without disrupting what is already working on the mainframe is the holy grail.

This session will highlight, along with a demo, Git working with Enterprise Git to access code and build code in Endevor. Additionally, how a developer can work on mainframe code and frame assets in modern IDE’s that have familiar user experiences.

Dana Boudreau - As a leader in agile development Dana Boudreau directs CA Technologies Mainframe Application Development solution portfolio.  This includes setting strategy and product direction for the Endevor, InterTest, File Master Plus, and SymDump solutions. He has deep experience in leading mainframe as well as distributed teams and join CA after a 20+ year career at IBM.  Dana works closely with CA’s mainframe customers to improve software delivery and developer productivity.As visionary product leader, his contributions have changed software development on the mainframe and he has helped scores of organizations integrate their mainframe and distributed development process to speed delivery and drive more successful business outcomes.

Abstract 

Today the developers need to understand unfamiliar or complex mainframe applications programs that don’t have documentation and are 20, 30 or even 40 years old.

By using a visual representation of both the code structure and logic as well as the actual I/O and program trail during execution, 

learn 

Graphical Mapping of Program-to-program Calls

Pinpoint Performance Problems

Dive Deeper into Program Details

Visibility into Real Behavior in Production

Impact Analysis across programs and copybooks

Understand Complex and Unfamiliar Programs Faster

Integration with SonarSource and Jenkins

Abstract 

At this session I will tell you about COBOL code savings you can do on top of any COBOL version, to make your program run faster.

Many of us may have forgotten or never have time writing efficient COBOL code, and in the end your management may think COBOL is becoming too expensive.

This session will cover different COBOL code examples that are simple, but for sure will make your program run faster, and together with COBOL 6 we often see savings up 80% in the COBOL code.

The session will also take a short look into what you can do with the compiler option.

 

Henrik Strøbech has been in the mainframe area since 1989, and before that, he was coding pc systems.
Before his current position as a Solution Architect at Nets Denmark, Henrik has been working as a consultant at several Danish mainframe installations for 13 years. 
Henrik has been with Nets Denmark for 9 years and is currently working as a Solution Architect. For the past 3 years, he has been working on a MIPS Saving project, where his latest findings with COBOL has proven to be very interesting.
Henrik is together with Svenn-Aage Sønderskov the founder and Chairman of the GSE Performance group in Denmark.
This group include specialists from all major mainframe installations in Denmark.
