Application Developers Controlled Distribution (ADCD) Support

IBM Innovation Center - Dallas

What you should know about ADCD.

The ADCD is built on a twice per year schedule typically coinciding with the release of new versions of z/OS. The ADCD is created to provide qualified Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) with the latest z/OS System along with associated middleware products at the latest available maintenance level. For quite some time now, we have been offering the z/OS System also via download option, in addition to the DVDs. The z/OS ADCD can run under the IBM's System z Personal Development Tool (zPDT).

NOTE: There is an annual US $900 subscription fee for the use of the ADCD SW distributions. This annual fee covers the z/OS, z/VM, and z/VSE ADCD SW stacks and is regardless if one, two, or all three ADCD stacks are requested.
