z/OS is IBM's premier 64-bit operating system for the mainframe. IBM has supported a UNIX-like environment on the mainframe for almost two decades (under MVS, OS/390, and now z/OS). Originally called Open Edition, this UNIX-like environment is now called UNIX System Services (and the official shorthand is "z/OS UNIX").
It is UNIX System Services that allows the mainframe to support UNIX applications, especially Web applications, on the mainframe.
Our UNIX courses are all about UNIX on the mainframe.
But the Web integrates many platforms and uses many technologies. For an overview, look at "How the Web Works". Our Web-oriented training provides training for the pieces involved with running Web-based applications:
- UNIX courses (in depth, practical information for the mainframe platform)
- HTML/XHTML course - for creating z/OS-based websites(!)
- CGI courses - for running programs on the host at the request of the user at a browser
- DB2 - to support the data server work
- Other programming courses (REXX, Assembler, COBOL, PL/I, and C/C++ can all be used to implement Web based applications on the mainframe)
