If you missed InterConnect 2015 or just could not get to all sessions of interest, see presentation material for session ASZ-2026 that I co-presented with Marcel Mitran (IBM) called " Reasons to Love IBM Java and WebSphere Application Server on z Systems'.
Marcel outlined the latest in innovation and performance with IBM z13 and Java 8 and I presented HCSC WAS on z/OS V8.5.5 x performance data, using Java V6.0.1 & Java V7.1, showing how we achieved up 30% CPU reduction with WAS on z/OS V22.214.171.124 and Java V6.0.1 and additional 10-12% with WAS on z/OS V126.96.36.199 and Java V7.1. I also included lessons learned and best practices information.
Java V8 on z/OS goes GA on 3/6/15 and IBM intends to exploit 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java V8 in IBM WebSphere Liberty Profile for z/OS, and full profile of WebSphere Application Server for z/OS. See Software Announcement 215-004 - http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?infotype=AN&subtype=CA&htmlfid=897/ENUS215-004
Here are some performance highlights using Java V8 and z13 -
- Java SDK 8 applications running with z13 Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT) enabled zIIP specialty engines can achieve throughput improvements of up to 50% compared to Java 7 on zEC12
- Customers running Encryption Facility to share sensitive files with business partners may encrypt their data using clear key in half the time
and reduce the CPU time by one third when using IBM 64-bit SDK for z/OS, Java V8 8 on z13 compared to using Java 7.1 on
zEC12 (source - http://www.infinite-blue.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Vicom-012215.pdf )

The Value WebSphere Liberty Profile Brings to z/OSMF
z/OS Management Facility (z/OSMF) is a set of browser based tools that allow for the management of various aspects of z/OS systems. As of z/OSMF V2.1, the product has been architected to run inside a WebSphere Liberty Profile server on the z/OS platform. This session will start by giving an overview of the capabilities of z/OSMF. In addition, the discussion will cover how WebSphere Liberty Profile is utilized to provide a modular framework for the product to run in. This modular framework allows for the development team to seamlessly provide new functionality as well as to allow users to expand the out of the box functionality with their own features.
Our speaker, Gary Puchkoff, works in IBM’s software development organization and is the Lead Architect for the z/OS operating system including z/OSMF. Gary also played a key role on the team that created WebSphere Liberty Profile.
