IBM today announced new Internet infrastructure software for mainframes. The new WebSphere software runs on IBM's z/OS and OS/390 operating systems for the eServer z900 and S/390 and is compliant with Java2 Enterprise Edition. The new software products include WebSphere Application Server for z/OS and OS/390 and CICS Transaction Server V2.1.

With WebSphere, application programmers can design, develop and assemble Java applications using common, industry-standard programming without having to account for the differences or restrictions of any particular computing system. The decision of where to run a J2EE application can now be based on desired qualities of service, the availability and location of data, and the availability of computing resources, not just the operating system- specific knowledge or skills of the application programmers.
