by Developer.com Staff

The tool bridges the divide between the mainframe and modern applications.

At the Open Source Summit, IBM, CA Technologies and Rocket Software announced Zowe, a new open source framework that provides interoperability and scalability between the mainframe and modern applications. IBM also said that Zowe was the first open source software designed for the z/OS mainframe operating system.

Zowe includes APIs, an API mediation layer, a Web UI named zLUX and a command line interface that allows users to connect with Zowe from cloud computing services or distributed systems.

Barry Baker, IBM vice president of Z Software, said, "This strategic collaboration enables clients that rely on the mainframe for running their core business to simplify and speed application development, deployment, and operations on z/OS. This initiative brings together industry experts to drive innovation for the community of next-generation mainframe developers that are new to the platform."
