This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides both introductory information and technical details for the ISV IBM Z® Personal Development Tool (IBM zPDT®), which produces a small IBM Z environment suitable for application development. ISV zPDT is a PC Linux application. When ISV zPDT is installed (on Linux), normal IBM Z Operating Systems (such as IBM z/OS®) may be run on it. ISV zPDT provides the basic IBM Z architecture and provides emulated IBM 3390 disk drives, 3270 interfaces, OSA interfaces, and so forth.
The systems that are discussed in this document are complex, with elements of Linux (for the underlying PC machine), IBM z/Architecture® (for the core zPDT elements), IBM Z I/O functions (for emulated I/O devices), z/OS (the most common IBM Z operating system), and various applications and subsystems under z/OS. We assume that the reader is familiar with general concepts and terminology of IBM Z hardware and software elements, and with basic PC Linux characteristics.
This book provides the primary documentation for ISV zPDT® and corresponds to zPDT V1 R11, commonly known as GA11.
