IBM semeru open edition and IBMZSecurity provider.

    Hi,
    I working to migrate Java 8 code to Java 11.0.15, my code is using the security provider IBMZSecurity (which is added in JAVA 11.0.15), as the IBM guide
    I developed the code using eclipse and downloaded Semeru Open edition 11.0.17 for windows, I tried to enable the IBMZSecurity provider in my jdk 
    library, to be added to the list of providers in java.security file, but I couldn't see that the RACFInputStream couldn't resolve in eclipse and I don't see
    that the package com.ibm.crypto.zsecurity.provider is in the libraries of jdk 11,
    , I downloaded JDK 11.0.17.8 - open j9. 
    Please can you help me to resolve this issue?

    Reference thread from another category group here.

    Hi Sharbel,

    IBMZSecurity is not part of distributed platform SDKs. IBMZSecurity exists only in Java SDK products on z/OS downloads.

    If you cannot use the z/OS Java SDK, and must develop / compile on non-z/OS platform needing access to IBMZSecurity for RACFInputStream, there will be a number of manual steps / workarounds needed.

    Hi Sharbel,

    I have noticed that you are trying to compile the code on Eclipse and it seems like the steps you took to start the process is good. Eclipse can be a bit wonky so here are some steps that I did to compile the code properly on Eclipse (The steps are listed in the document that is attached)


    These were all the steps that I did to compile the code on Eclipse. I hope this helps

    Hi,
    First Thanks for the instructions,

    here is my questions:
    1) Where i can find ibm.crypto.zsecurity.jmod ? is this shiped with SDK that installed on z\OS ?
    2) where i can ran these commands to extract the jmod ? is it from OMVS command line?


    Thanks,
    Sharbel

    Hi Sharbel,

    Great questions, here are the following answers:

    1. the jmod should be located within the SDK that you installed onto your machine. It should listed under a directory called jmods if done correctly

    2. you can extract the jmod by doing a copy/paste of the file

    Hope this helps!

    hi John,
    Please can you send me the steps to migrate the jmod ibm.healthcenter.jmod , i think its the same steps for creating  zip and jar file, but the question is how i make the changes on eclipse for the package and source module?

    Hi Sharbel,

    Yes, I believe it should be the same steps in creating the jar file as you did with the zsecurity.jmod - I think you can still add it as an external jar from the Eclipse instructions specified in the doc.

    I did the same steps and it appears to be okay from my end

    I don't think that is necessary, the steps lead to the classpath that's within the properties in the Java Build Path. I believe whatever main class you are running, you can specify the package of which that class is in, here is an example of photo of what I mean by adding it to the classpath
