This document describes how to install EntireX Java components under z/OS UNIX. It covers the following topics:
The following EntireX Java components can be used under z/OS UNIX. The links provide more information on configuring and administering these components under UNIX.
To install EntireX Java components under z/OS UNIX
Unload the delivered installation medium to your DASD device. See Copying the Contents of the Installation Medium to Disk.
On your UNIX system, create a directory for the installation. For example:
mkdir SoftwareAG; cd SoftwareAG;
Copy the file
to the created directory, where
hlq is your high-level qualifier and
vrs is the product version, release and service pack:
tso "oput 'hlq.EXXvrs.TAR' 'SoftwareAG/exxvrs.tar' binary"
Unpack the TAR file:
tar xvfo exxvrs.tar
Now you have created a folder structure with subdirectories EntireX and
WS-Stack which contain all necessary files in several subdirectories. In the
EntireX/bin directory you have an environment file
you can source to set your environment. Before sourcing the environment, edit this file and set
the environment variable
EXXDIR to your
EntireX directory. Then you can enter the following command (note the space
after the initial period):
Check your Java installation and edit the file
exxjenv.sh in the
You need to set the
JAVA_HOME environment variable to your corresponding Java installation.
Bourne shell scripts are provided in the
EntireX/bin directory to start the different RPC servers.
To use the RPC Server for XML/SOAP, configure the path to the

This file is already in EBCDIC format and the encoding has been set to CP037.
If you need a different encoding, change this setting accordingly.
The following table shows the provided start script and configuration file for each RPC server or listener.
|Script in EntireX/bin
|Config File in EntireX/config
|RPC Server for Java
|RPC Server for XML/SOAP
|RPC Server for IBM MQ
|Listener for IBM MQ
|RPC Server for CICS ECI
|RPC Server for CICS Socket Listener
|RPC Server for IMS Connect
For the Listener for XML/SOAP you need to set up a Web server and install Software AG Web Services Stack to this Web server.
See Configure the Web Services Stack Runtime in the Software AG Infrastructure Administrator's Guide, also available under http://documentation.softwareag.com > Guides for Tools Shared by Software AG Products.
After successful installation, copy or upload
<inst_dir>/EntireX/classes/entirex.jar to the WEB-INF/lib folder in the Web Services Stack application folder.
