Installing EntireX under z/OS

There are two methods for installing EntireX under z/OS:

  • the simplified installation method; this is the method we recommend

  • the classic installation method as used in previous versions of EntireX (prior to version 9.9)

The information you need depends on the installation method you choose. The following section applies to both methods:

Introduction Installation scope; contents of the mainframe installation medium; copying the contents to disk.

The following section applies to the simplified method only:

Simplified Installation New, simplified installation procedure. All JCL members are now in library EXX107.JOBS. This data set has been thoroughly restructured; it contains installation, installation verification and maintenance jobs of all EntireX subproducts. This is the recommended installation method.

The following sections apply to the classic method only:

See the separate Software AG Installer documentation under Cross-Product Guides > Software AG Installer and Update Manager Using the Software AG Installer> in the Software AG Documentation.
