We have just released V3.0.53 of z/OS Connect EE.

In this release we have upgraded Liberty to V21.0.0.12, added some APAR fixes, and updated the file system logger to use log4j version 2.17.1.

WebSphere Liberty Profile V21.0.0.12

The version of WebSphere Liberty Profile that is embedded in z/OS Connect EE V3.0.53 is V21.0.0.12.

Find out more from the Liberty documentation.

Angel V17

The version of the angel shipped with WebSphere Liberty Profile V21.0.0.12 is version 17.

If you choose not to update to this level of the Liberty Angel, then the following warning message will appear in your messages.log file:

CWWKB0127W: The current angel version is earlier than the version that the server expects. Update the angel version to the latest available version.

API toolkit versions

The latest version of the z/OS Connect EE API toolkit plug-in to design and create your services and APIs is V3.0.9.6 for Aqua 3.1 users, and V3.2.9.6 for Aqua 3.2 users. You should obtain the latest version of the API toolkit from the Aqua download site for your version of Aqua as it includes all the latest features and fixes.

The z/OS Connect EE API toolkit has been enhanced to present the Liberty API Explorer web interface for users to examine and test deployed APIs without concern for CORS restrictions. You will need to use this version of the API toolkit (or later) if you wish to use this API Discovery feature.

If unzipping the API toolkit zip file on Windows, due to the long filenames of some of the file members, you should use a tool such as 7-Zip or the “jar -x” command. Do not use winzip, winrar, or the Windows own zip extraction tool, as warnings/errors will occur during the unzip and the API toolkit will be unusable.
