(E)JES V5R7 Enhancements Include z/OS 2.3 Support, (E)JES Web Capabilities

((E)JES V5R7 is now generally available providing support for z/OS 2.3 as well as enhancements to the base product and (E)JES Web.

(E)JES Web enhancements since the previous release have all been made available to (E)JES V5R4 through V5R6 users through the service stream. These enhancements include:

  • Line and navigation command parameter support
  • Additional and temporary selection support
  • Box mode browsing
  • Appearance options including color schemes, line spacing and grid display
  • Exception value formatting in tabular columns
  • Point-and-click sorting
  • Drag-and-drop column arranging
  • Performance enhancements

The (E)JES Workstation Component (formerly (E)JES/2), PSI's OS/2- and Windows-based (E)JES offering since 1996, is being sunset. There will be no V5R7 release. Toleration PTFs have been developed to allow EWC V5R6 to use (E)JES V5R7 as its operating system interface. EWC V5R6 will continue to be supported and maintained, and is expected to coexist with then current (E)JES releases, until it is officially stabilized at the end of September 2019. Customers requiring a graphical user interface should transition to (E)JES Web, the browser-based offering first introduced with (E)JES V5R4 in September 2014.
