informationIBM Says computerized testing tool Completes Mainframe CI/CD Pipeline
IBM continues to modernize building on its z/OS mainframe working device, saying an automatic unit checking out tool that builds on previously introduced Git functionality.
massive Blue this month unveiled IBM Z Open Unit look at various, an automatic unit testing device for batch and client counsel handle gadget (CICS) courses. The enterprise talked about it fills a gap in its IBM Z Open development toolset announced late closing yr, particularly automatic unit trying out, which it observed is indispensable for continuous Integration/continual delivery (CI/CD) pipelines.
"IBM Z Open construction is a latest, lean built-in construction environment with software knowing, edit, debug and construct automation capabilities," IBM says on the toolset's web page. "Z Open development opens the door to a platform neutral, continual integration and deployment pipeline it is inclusive of z/OS application add-ons.
"it's a starter toolset for z/OS development groups who plan to radically change and unify their software delivery practices around modern source code management techniques equivalent to Git and Rational group concert."
Key facets of IBM Z Open construction listed by using the company encompass:
Now, automatic unit testing can be brought to the combine.
"A continual Integration/continuous start (CI/CD) pipeline is incomplete devoid of computerized unit trying out," IBM spoke of in an announcement final week. "actually, a core tenant of CI is continual checking out, wherein developers construct and unit look at various code after every trade.
"On that be aware, we're excited to announce IBM Z Open Unit verify: an automatic unit testing tool for batch and CICS classes. IBM Z Open Unit examine works at the side of IBM Z Open building to create a powerful continual construction, checking out and delivery environment."
Key facets of the checking out device encompass:
With availability deliberate for March 22, the tool may be included in: IBM Z Open Unit test V1.0; IBM Developer for z techniques V14.1.6; and IBM Developer for z methods enterprise edition V14.1.6. must haves for the use of the tool encompass IBM Z Open development and both the z/OS V2.2 or z/OS V2.3 operating programs.
