Softdate/z version 4.5 is in full release with multiple new enhancements and features as it moves towards demand of DevOps by our clients and prospects.
The new features include:
- Java support in multiple concurrent Softdate/z systems. Softdate/z was already unique in being able to run multiple copies in the same z/OS image to allow easy migration to new releases. However, Java (and TIME PC) support could only be active in one of these systems. Now, with v4.5, Java and TIME PC support can be turned on in multiple concurrently running Softdate/z systems.
- SETS enhancements for distributed DB2. The exclusive SETS (Softdate Enterprise Time Synchronization) cross-platform feature was already available in v4.4. Now, in v4.5, SETS can automatically synchronize virtual clocks for distributed DB2 users across z/OS, Windows and Linux/Unix to enable seamless cross-platform enterprise app testing.
- Beyond-2042 support and more
