The ADCD is a customized bundle of z/VSE and related products. It is not an IBM program product and is not supported as a product. The intent of the ADCD is to allow a user a way to quickly implement a z/OS system in order to concentrate on application development. In general choice of parameters and customizations are default install options with some changes due to user experiences.
Approved ISVs with zPDT based systems will need to have agreed to the ADCD license agreement, and have a signed System z Developer Discount contract on file with IBM prior to receiving a copy of the z/VSE ADCD. All license and agreements are done through the System z Developer Discount offering.
