"The updated operating system, called OS/390 Version 2.9, includes the Websphere Application Server, which now supports JavaServer Pages and Servlets, as well as Websphere Studio Tooling, for VisualAge for Java tooling support. For users, this means that applications they develop that ascribe to these standards can be used on any platform, reportedly making it easier to build cross platform e-business applications."

"IBM also has added a Languages Environment and OS/390 Unix Systems Services, making the porting of C and C++ applications less time consuming. The new environment supports printf and scanf formatting of 64-bit integers. These enhancements make it easier for users to port Unix applications to IBM's S/390."

"Trying to assist administrators better diagnose a variety of systems issues related to Unix applications, IBM has enhanced the operating system's HFS (hierarchical file system) with new support to capture standard error messages in an HFS file in a Unix environment."
