Modern mainframe software development occurs on both mainframe and distributed systems. To take full advantage of your mainframe development resources, the ChangeMan ZMF Client Pack provides multiple client interfaces. Choose your interface and use the Eclipse Workbench, the IBM Rational Developer for System z (RDz) environment, the ChangeMan ZDD Windows client interface, or the traditional Serena ChangeMan ZMF interface to develop and maintain your mainframe applications.
ChangeMan ZMF for Eclipse supports both the native Eclipse Workbench and IBM RDz environments. Now you can develop off the mainframe and continue to benefit from the version control, build management, release management, and deployment capabilities of Serena ChangeMan ZMF.
Using ChangeMan ZDD, you can browse your mainframe system as if it were a network file system. From a Windows desktop, ChangeMan ZDD provides access to data sets, job submission, job output, and to Serena ChangeMan ZMF components as though they were local files on your PC. And all your existing access and security is still enforced. No special execution or programming interface is required.
