Co:Z Toolkit now includes SFTP with Dataset support

ST. CHARLES, MO. - October 22nd, 2008

Dovetailed Technologies, LLC is pleased to announce today that we are releasing version 1.1.0 of the Co:Z Co-processing Toolkit for z/OS.

Major additions to this release include:

  1. A new port of OpenSSH sftp for z/OS which adds support for MVS datasets, catalogs, partitioned datasets, etc. The sftp-server is designed to work with an existing sshd service, such as IBM's Ported Tools for z/OS - OpenSSH. Installations may configure sshd so that the new Co:Z sftp-server is only used for selected users.

    Using Co:Z sftp-server, systems with OpenSSH or another sftp compatible package may transfer files directly to MVS datasets and control all aspects of dataset formats, codepage conversion, and allocation. This release only includes the sftp-server, a future release will also include a new port of the z/OS sftp client.

    The Co:Z sftp client for z/OS also provides dataset support and can be used interactively from a z/OS Unix shell or in a batch job.

  2. Several new z/OS Unix shell commands:
    catsearch
    invokes z/OS catalog search to produce a listing similar to ISPF 3.4
    pdsdir
    displays a PDS directory similar to ISPF
    zsym
    expands z/OS system symbols for use in shell scripts.

The Co:Z toolkit for z/OS is a free product. Commercial support agreements are available.

The remote/target process can use Dataset Pipes commands or APIs to "reach back" into the launching jobstep and access MVS datasets.  Existing z/OS scheduling and automation facilities can be used to manage and control Co:Z distributed jobs.
