Navigating the AS/400: A Hands-On Guide
John Enck
0138625581
October 1997
Paperback
·
 
From the Inside Flap
Introduction 0.1 THE AS/400 LEGACY In the early part of 1988 the computer industry was buzzing with rumors of the "Silverlake" project. Although most of the technical details were kept under wraps, the industry knew "Silverlake" was the next generation of IBM midrange processors-the heir apparent to the throne room where the System/38 ruled from one chair and the System/36 from another. In many minds "Silverlake" was to usher in a new generation of midrange computing which would shore up the position of midrange processors in the face of the encroaching hordes of PCs, LANs, and the crumbling bastions of mainframes. The name "Silverlake" was borrowed from a body of water located near the IBM Rochester, Minnesota center responsible for the development of the system. Although several analysts predicated the final...

From the Inside Flap
PrefaceThis book consists of everything I have learned over the years about performance and tuning. It includes a structured approach, opinions, heuristics, and references.

Windows 2000 and Mainframe Integration
William H. Zack
1578702003
October 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Written by a seasoned mainframe programmer, Windows 2000 and Mainframe Integration gives background and an overview for most facets of both Windows 2000 and OS/390. While presenting this information, the book employs sidebars to relate the author's personal experience or give pertinent advice.

Although this book does not provide any details about writing code or using products to integrate the processes of a Windows 2000 system with a mainframe, it does furnish decent high-level descriptions. In the chapter on input/output devices, the book explains how OS/390 channels and Windows 2000 device adapters operate, supplying some history along the way that explains why the systems handle input and output differently.

In general, this volume provides clear text and diagrams, but an all-too-apparent rush during editing makes...

Jan 1991
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
No new product offering has had greater impact on the computer industry than the IBM System/360. IBM's 360 and Early 370 Systems describes the creation of this remarkable system and the developments it spawned, including its successor, System/370. The authors tell how System/360's widely-copied architecture came into being and how IBM failed in an effort to replace it ten years later with a bold development effort called FS, the Future System. Along the way they detail the development of many computer innovations still in use, among them semiconductor memories, the cache, floppy disks, and Winchester disk files. They conclude by looking at issues involved in managing research and development and striving for product leadership.

While numerous anecdotal and fragmentary accounts of System/360 and...
