Available Now! IBM Wazi Developer: Bring Your Own (BYO) IDE for Cloud Native Development Trial


We are excited to announce our new Z Trial: Bring Your Own (BYO) IDE for cloud native development. With this trial, you will experience various IDEs (Eclipse® or Microsoft® VS Code™) integrated with modern SCMs, such as Git, to develop a z/OS application and build a pipeline with Jenkins.

Before diving into the Z Trial, let’s review the Bring Your Own Integrated Development Environment (BYOIDE) for cloud native development capability. BYOIDE allows you to edit, build, and debug across a choice of popular integrated development environments - Microsoft® VS Code™, Eclipse®, or Red Hat® CodeReady Workspaces. This capability is available in both IBM Developer for z/OS Enterprise Edition and IBM Wazi Developer for Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces (IBM Wazi Developer).

IBM Wazi Developer for Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces aids hybrid development. With IBM Wazi Developer, IBM puts Z in the middle of hybrid development and ensures that Z can fully participate in hybrid cloud world. This solution supports digital transformation through a single unified toolset that is familiar with developers.

As of today, IBM Wazi Developer has two capabilities: Wazi Code and Wazi Sandbox. Wazi Code provides essential developer capabilities that include edit, build, and debug through a choice of IDEs. In Wazi Code, developers are provided flexibility to choose their preferred IDEs. You can choose between Eclipse, Microsoft VS Code or Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces. Wazi Sandbox provides a containerized, personal z/OS sandbox environment running on Red Hat OpenShift that runs on x86 hardware.

With these components, you can take advantage of the pipeline capability to automate the workflow of application development. Validate the modified code and debug it in the IDE of your choice. Check in locally tested changes directly to Git. Automatically build, test, qualify and deploy the code to the target z/OS system - the Wazi Sandbox for testing stage and real LPAR for production stage. Go further and build a pipeline with Jenkins, IBM Dependency Based Build, and UrbanCode Deploy.

 With this IBM Wazi Developer trial, you will experience the IDEs (Eclipse® or Microsoft® VS Code™) integrated with modern SCM such as Git to develop a z/OS application and build a pipeline with Jenkins. 

 You will learn how to:

  • Use GitLab to see your assigned tasks and access application source code stored in Git.
  • Code, debug and build the sample COBOL application using Eclipse or VS Code.
  • Commit and push modifications to Git and request a Jenkins pipeline.

 This hands-on evaluation of IBM Z software is as easy as 1-2-3.

  • Completely free. No credit card required.
  • Available within 2 hours and accessible for 3 days including weekends.
  • No installation required. Take a tutorial or just look around.

We truly hope that this trial will give you an experience that will help you to begin your journey with IBM Wazi Developer. To learn more about this offering, you can connect with one of our service representatives.
