Enterprises can reuse and extend their existing CI/CD pipelines on AWS to support the Software Delivery Life Cycle of mainframe applications. This demonstration shows how the AWS Developer tools can be used with the Wazi components, available on the AWS Cloud platform through the IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Stack, to automate CI/CD tasks and help to deliver mainframe applications with quality and efficiency.
This video showcases a Cloud-native experience for developing and testing Mainframe applications. The developer leverages Wazi for DevSpaces, a Web-based IDE that contains all the necessary elements to implement changes to a Cobol program and build it. Wazi Analyze is also used to understand the relationship between the different artifacts and perform changes with confidence. Wazi Sandbox provides the developer with an isolated z/OS system for Dev & Test purposes, to build programs and run unit tests as well as early integration tests. The AWS Cloud platform offers different capabilities, like AWS CodeCommit and AWS CodePipeline, that are used to create modern CI/CD pipelines for mainframe applications.
