Please note that for members who prefer to view our site in 'mobile style' on a computer, we have an option to switch to 'Mobile View' while on computer also. You can find this option at the bottom of the index page just above the donation chest icon.

Please Note - in mobile-view, as of now, "basic blue color scheme" is the only standard theme at the moment - so you might see "green changing to blue" while in 'mobile-view' or seeing the site on a mobile.

Enjoy! :)

Java is an increasingly popular programming language used for many applications across multiple operating systems. IBM® is a major supporter and user of Java across all of the IBM computing platforms, including z/OS®. The z/OS Java products provide the same, full function Java APIs as on all other IBM platforms. In addition, the z/OS Java licensed programs have been enhanced to allow Java access to z/OS unique file systems. Programming languages such as Enterprise COBOL and Enterprise PL/I in z/OS provide interfaces to programs written in Java. These languages provide a set of interfaces or facilities for interacting with programs written in Java.

The various Java Software Development Kit (SDK) licensed programs for z/OS help application developers use the Java APIs for z/OS, write or run applications across multiple platforms, or use Java to access data that resides on the mainframe. Some of these products allow Java applications to run in only a 31-bit addressing environment. However, with 64-bit SDKs for z/OS, pure Java applications that were previously storage-constrained by 31-bit addressing can execute in a 64-bit environment. Also, some mainframes support a special processor for running Java applications called the zSeries® Application Assist Processor (zAAP). Programs can be run interactively through z/OS UNIX® or in batch.

IBM SDK products for z/OS
As with Java SDKs for other IBM platforms, z/OS Java SDK licensed programs are supplied for industry standard APIs. The z/OS SDK products are independent of each other and can be ordered and serviced separately.

The Java Native Interface (JNI)
The Java Native Interface (JNI) is the Java interface to native programming languages and is part of the Java Development Kits. If the standard Java APIs do not have the function you need, the JNI allows Java code that runs within a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to operate with applications and libraries written in other languages, such as PL/I. In addition, the Invocation API allows you to embed a Java Virtual Machine into your native PL/I applications.

It is regarded as an intermediate-level language, as it comprises both high-level and low-level language features. C++ was originally named C with Classes, adding object oriented features, such as classes, and other enhancements to the C programming language. It interesting to know that the language was renamed C++ in 1983, as a pun involving the increment operator.

C++ is one of the most popular programming languages and is implemented on a wide variety of hardware and operating system platforms. As an efficient compiler to native code, its application domains include systems software, application software, device drivers, embedded software, high-performance server and client applications, and entertainment software such as video games.

Somehow I believe, he had not been given the due respect he deserved... this is my little effort in that direction - A Great Human Being He was!

C is a general-purpose programming language initially developed by, the Great Scientist, Dennis Ritchie. C has facilities for structured programming and allows lexical-variable-scope** and recursion, while a static type system prevents many unintended operations. C is one of the most widely used programming languages of all time and there are very few computer architectures for which a C compiler does not exist. Many later languages have borrowed directly or indirectly from C, including C#, D, Go, Java, JavaScript, Limbo, LPC, Perl, PHP, Python, and Unix's C shell.

Before there was an official standard for C, many users and implementors relied on an informal specification contained in a book by Dennis Ritchie and Brian Kernighan; that version is generally referred to as "K&R" C. In 1989 the American National Standards Institute published a standard for C (generally called "ANSI C" or "C89"). The next year, the same specification was approved by the International Organization for Standardization as an international standard (generally called "C90"). ISO later released an extension to the internationalization support of the standard in 1995, and a revised standard (known as "C99") in 1999. The current version of the standard (now known as "C11") was approved in December 2011.

The milestones in C's development as a language are listed below:

  • UNIX developed c. 1969 -- DEC PDP-7 Assembly Language
  • BCPL -- a user friendly OS providing powerful development tools developed from BCPL. Assembler tedious long and error prone.
  • A new language ``B'' a second attempt. c. 1970.
  • A totally new language ``C'' a successor to ``B''. c. 1971
  • By 1973 UNIX OS almost totally written in ``C''.
Now you know why it is called "C"!? And why not any other letter! :)


** - This is a property of the program text and is made independent of the runtime call stack by the language implementation. Because this matching only requires analysis of the static program text, this type of scoping is also called static scoping.
