IBM DB2® for z/OS® is a high-performance database management system (DBMS) with a strong reputation in traditional high-volume transaction workloads that are based on relational technology. IBM WebSphere® Application Server is web application server software that runs on most platforms with a web server and is used to deploy, integrate, execute, and manage Java Platform, Enterprise Edition applications. In this IBM® Redbooks® publication, we describe the application architecture evolution focusing on the value of having DB2 for z/OS as the data server and IBM z/OS® as the platform for traditional and for modern applications. This book provides background technical information about DB2 and WebSphere features and demonstrates their applicability presenting a scenario about configuring WebSphere Version 8.5 on z/OS and type 2 and type 4 connectivity (including the XA transaction support) for accessing a DB2 for z/OS database server taking into account high-availability requirements. We also provide considerations about developing applications, monitoring performance, and documenting issues. DB2 database administrators, WebSphere specialists, and Java application developers will appreciate the holistic approach of this document.

IBM® DB2® Tools for z/OS® support and take advantage of the latest versions of DB2 for z/OS. These tools are integral for the administration of the DB2 for z/OS environment and for optimization of data performance. In addition, the IBM portfolio addresses additional client requirements in the areas of data governance and version upgrade acceleration. Underlying the operation of any database management system are the utilities. With the number of database objects growing exponentially, managing utility jobs, meeting service level agreements (SLAs), and ensuring recoverability can be overwhelming. IBM offers DB2 Tools solution packs that assist in the DB2 utilities management process. Solution packs combine several products into a single consolidated solution providing everything necessary to ensure the execution of a set of database administration functions. The goals are to reduce the operational complexity and reduce cost. The objective of this IBM Redbooks® publication is to document the added value in terms of productivity and performance for database administrators when using the IBM DB2 Utilities Solution Pack and the IBM DB2 Fast Copy Solution Pack. We show the functions of the tools provided by the solution packs as used in real-life scenarios and adopting utilities best practices.
