200 Years of IT A Fairy Tale about Usefulness, Limitations, User Interfaces, Processes, and You

By Michael Erichsen , Xact Consulting, Denmark

IT has a history of almost 200 years. We look at the past, the present and the future, and on the evolving role of z systems and mainframe people.

Java on Mainframe

By Michael Erichsen , Xact Consulting, Denmark

Java is a new language on the mainframe, but not so new anymore. It has been around on this platform for about 20 years now, and a lot of effort has been taken to converge processor technology and Java Virtual Machine design into something that can perform well.

We will take a look at the evolving implementations and at the differences between COBOL and Java internals. And we will discuss the many issues we still have to face like virtualization conflicts, memory allocation, garbage collection policies, heap tuning, startup CPU usage, mixed language development, deployment, special Java tools, security, education, and keeping software prices down.

Michael Erichsen is an Enterprise Modernization Specialist at Xact Consulting in Copenhagen, Denmark. Besides being solution architect, systems programmer, storage manager, and operations staff for a number of RD&T instances in-house and with customers he currently concentrates on Rational Developer for system z and on developing the host component of a unit test tool.

We looking forward to seeing you on Iceland
